We are still alive !

Wow I have not posted for 11 days. We have been crazy busy preping the boat to sail to get out of the hurricane zone. This last 3 days we just completed an 80 hour sail down from St Martin to Bonaire.

Here are two shots of the same anchorage taken 6 hours apart of some remote islands in the Grenadines. Amazing how the angle of light changes the scene completely. Which one do you prefer? Hope everyone has been well in my absence !

Robert, yay so glad for the update. I was thinking about you and getting ready to sail. I like the first one, the colors of the ocean are so beautiful.

Thanks Sara. The reef colours are always amazing; it encourages me to shoot more in the middle of the day then you would normally as a photographer. Hope you're well.

Glad to hear you are still living the life of freedom.
Maybe BTC will become legal tender in some of the island nations you are visiting soon.

In case you missed the big El Salvador news you can find details here:

Very cool news about El Salvador. Cats out of the bag with crypto; many places will try and ban it but unless you ban the internet its neigh impossible.

Glad you all made it in one piece!
Both great photos but I think I like the top one best. Love seeing different colours of blue over the reef.

Thanks. Hard to get a lot of time for social media; but still taking a million photos. Will share them one day.

You do a post about how you spend your normal days... it would be interesting to know what a full time sailing family normally does. Do you have a remote job?

I could do a simple post on what it is like one day. Really just child care and boat maintenance in exotic locations. As for work you mean other than posting on hive ;-). I have a few passive income streams and make some money selling photos, but I also consult (as a Chemical Engineer) for a couple of days a week.

Prepping boat to move out of hurrucane zone sounds kind of important x_x

Can't pick a favourite with the shots, they're both different types of epic.
