As the darkness of winter descends in Switzerland, we are counting the days before our transition to the Caribbean. We had a lovely day today, with a bit of sun in the afternoon, and a beautiful snow-covered landscape in all directions. But the sun is up late and down early, and the forecast is for clouds, fog, sleet and snow.
We have been working on our to-do lists for launching the boat, our provisioning plans, and our (very preliminary) itinerary for the season. This is fun --- helps us focus on the sunshine to come and not on the "hochnebel" (fog) of today. We are also starting to feel a bit sad about leaving our Swiss friends for such a long time. And looking forward to seeing our Caribbean friends again.
