Today was a day for cleaning the cabin and shopping for fresh vegetables. Our pattern lately has been to shop the day before the supply ship arrives when the shelves are most likely to be empty. Yesterday I asked SOB when the ship was due. He said it was today. Sure enough, when we got up this morning the ship was already at the dock unloading. We thought the fresh vegetables should be on the shelves by the afternoon and we weren’t disappointed. The store, Marketplace, is a really nice medium-sized grocery store and has an amazing 15-20 foot tall fresh decorated Christmas tree that was brought in from the US.
Jean and Michael on Desiderata were coming into the harbor as we were returning from the store. We dinghied over to say hello and spent some time catching up. It was great to see them again.
