Rodney Bay

Lisa and I decided to stay aboard this morning, which meant that we got assigned dish washing duties out of sequence! Well, this was fine by me, since it meant that I got some extra reading time while Norman and Allison were out shopping, and Sarang went swimming again at the beach.

The afternoon was spent picking up snacks, getting more coconut water (which Lisa had become addicted to), and then having a relaxing walk back to the marina for a shower and to meet the new sailors who were coming aboard that day.

Noah and Josh were from Los Angeles, where Noah was a film producer for Warner brothers, and Josh was a sports promoter. Though they were a couple of years apart, they looked so similar that Lisa and I thought they were twins! Noah had worked on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, among other films, and Josh had just come back from a long stint in Spain, where he became fluent with the language, had a Spanish girlfriend, and hoped to return there to start a restaurant chain.

Alena was from New York, where she worked as a commercial real estate manager for Cushman, Inc. Born in Belarus, she had won a green card lottery when she was 18, and worked her way up from the accounting department at her firm after a few promotions. She spoke English with a charming European accent. Unfortunately, American Airlines had lost her lugguage, so she was stuck with whatever she carried on with her on the plane.

We had drinks at the bar, and then returned to the Illusion for dinner. Our next two sailors would arrive from a later flight, but I was still under the weather from the cold, and so did not stay up to meet them.
