The Price is Right (or.. The Price is Expensive??) You decide!!!
Im thinking of a new little research project to fill my day… Lets check prices of common items at each island we visit.
You will remember St. John.. Tide was $25.99 Wine was $6?
Ok.. lets do some real research here.. and start off the program:
Road Town Tortola
TIDE: $11.85 (Better than $26!!!) Good thing we stocked up ($9) in Walmart in San Juan!!… Maybe I should sell some!!!
WINE: $3.85 (Amazing Wine from Chile)…
Beer: $1.25 for Redstripe in an ice filled cooler on the street
CHEERIOS: $8.05 (Again we stocked up in San Juan.. I need to set up a cart on the street!)
Guy Parker is sure we can get a grant from the government for the research…
So what happened today…. hummmm……
Well good news on the Water maker… the motor is OK.. problem was a transfer valve causing major arcing issues.. Looks like she will be back on the boat in a few days!
Not so good news.. Electricians are all busy.. haven’t looked at the charger inverter yet.. (So the waiting game continues)
Cruise Ship Day.. we successfully passed as tourists… People were trying to sell us tours, cab rides, etc..
I think my flower shirt was a good diversion to get us into the club!!!
Almost died.. Crossing the street.. Robin jumped out into traffic and was across the street when I started..
One car stopped, honked (nicely saying, go ahead, I will wait).. then a car came around the corner at 300 mph..
I was already committed to cross, saw the car, did the squirrel thing.. you can’t stop, so make a left and get back on the curb!!!
Allie said I even looked like a squirrel!!! which way to go!!!!!
But I Made it!!!
Of course the car wasn’t really going that fast.. stopped and then beeped.. come on Gringo.. cross the street… OK..thanks 🙂
So I’m trying to eat fish when I can… you know.. converting.. But geeze.. they don’t even have Fish and Chips here.. They have Chicken n Chips!! (I love this place!!!)
StarBucks doesn’t exist, neither does Mcdonalds or Burgerthing…big loss there eh!!! But they do have STARLUCK’s ha!!!..
So tomorrow (or today depending when you read this), we will decide to stay here another day or go up to Virgin Gorda and start some maintenance on Day Dream Believer..
Our little 30′ Nonsuch sailboat that we share with our friends Gary and Barb.. (You will likely see them on here in January!!)
Found a Job for Lisa… Surveying place… Almost ripped the licence plates off a car for George and Ted Cooper. but I hear the jails here feed you lobsters so I left it!
Here’s a few pics for your day….
Have a Great Day!
