011913 A Detour from Sailing 

P1110044

The St Lucia Adventure park with Zip lining was a great day out though not as challenging as some of the more adventurous may have been looking for. We moved on from Marigot Bay to Rodney Bay for the last few days of Tobias and Scotts trip onboard in the company of Islay and together with combined water toys had an active day on the water before moving back into the marina on the Sunday. 

After eight nights onboard it was time to secure Katherine in Rodney Bay Marina and for us to head onto Canada with a stopover in LA with Scott and Tobias. The young guys onboard the boat from Kiel next to us decided we were the best neighbours as we cleaned out the freezer and donated all contents including ice-cream to them. Leaving the boat with full ski gear in tow seemed somewhat out of place. 

Miami Airport has now moved to one of our try and avoid airports as it took over two hours to clear customs on arrival and not much less the next day as we tried to transit through domestic. 

011713 73 The final score


The three days in LA were packed with a Hop on Hop off bus trip around Hollywood, a day at Disneyland and California Adventure Park, people watching as we rode the metro, and the highlight being the NBL game at Staples Center - Miami Heat v LA Lakers. Being in the minority supporting Miami Heat provided some great entertainment in the stands but the fact they came out on top in such a close game just capped off the night.

Next stop ski slopes of Whistler.
