Just a quick stop in to Clayton new York to pay our rent online overseas, to have lunch (we just decided that our tour is rather a food tour, as we all relish a meal on land once a week or so....) and to stock up on a few things.

I am in the cool of the library, on free wifi. The entire building is moving beneath me. Been on the boat too long...
I want to write more but must go and buy some grub to stock up.

Last days have been spent on in anchorage in a beautiful spot where we sanded and varnished all the topside teak, and the kids snorkeled. Delightful, the boat looks so posh now, I feel we must all especially mind our manners.
(Not sure if I like her better as a vagabond or a princess...!)

Yesterday we made a short jaunt to a rock island to snorkle. Barren except of one lone pine tree, we found this inscription in a heavy smooth piece of marble

"Paradise with one tree"
Anniversary gift from Cliff to Elizabeth, 1958.
