My dink was robbed today

Yes in the middle of the day while playing Cricket some SOB heisted my 3 Gal fuel tank that had less then 1/2 gal of juice in it. Pissed me off. Last week some SOB untied my dink and let her drift into the Mangroves. Woburn is not safe for cruisers.

Another official Cricket match on Sunday

I thought we were done for the season, but the Woburn Woodlands Cricket Assoc has asked us to play Springs on Sunday at 11:30. We have practice today at 4:00PM. Some of our players have already left the island. Hopefully we can field a full team on Sunday.
I also hear that Woodlands wants a re-match after we won by 10 points/runs in 15 overs. This game is fun. What other sport has a half time break for Gin and Tonic :)

Snagged a fish trap yesterday on the outboard motor

Heading home at dusk and about 20 yds from my boat the engine stopped. There was a coke bottle floating at the stern of my dink. Ugh. Lucky it was only a couple of wraps around the prop. I didn't see the coke bottle. Prop is OKAY and it only took about 3 min to untangle the mess. This morning the fish trap was gone. I'm anchored in a marine preserve and they are not supposed to use nets and traps. They set them out near dark and pull them up at sunrise. Good thing I never put my dink on plane.

What a party!!!

Don's 50th BD and we all went up to the hot sulfur springs in the jungle of Grenada. Started at 10:00AM and I didn't get home until 10:30PM. One of the best birthday bashes of all time. We started with a pair of busses coordinated so that he wouldn't know (it was a surprise party). Lots of beer, wine and food. A hike up the jungle hauling all the beer, wine, ice and food. When the sun started to go down we did a pub crawl back to Nimrods Rum Shop and then hung out there for a while. I switched to H2O before we left. All the same, 4 lacerations (a bamboo bridge collapsed while I was crossing it carrying two heavy bags of leftover wine beer), a few bruises and scrapes and I once again lost my voice from yelling out as the bar tender. (Cricket is over for now, we didn't make it to the semi-finals so I thought I would get my voice back— Ha, not with a party like this). The picture bellow is after the bottom has been churned up a bit. Normally clear water with yellow sulfur on the rocks.

No more Cricket playing

We have been eliminated in the preliminary rounds. We will start up a cruiser only pair of teams to practice so that we are ready to win next year!

Pictures from the past week's cricket game

Here are a couple of pictures or you cricket team. First all the players a mix of cruisers and locals in the Woburn area.cricket uniforms
And for all my friends that have never seen a cricket field, here is what it looks like:

Haven't posted in a while

Cinco is much better but still needs to gain weight. I started adding scrambled eggs to his food. He needs to put on about 2 pounds.
I've been playing Cricket on the local cruiser's team. We don't win, but it is fun. I'll post some pictures of the games and the team later.
