Reality Check


Dear Friends,

Just for the weekend, sailing from Trinidad to Grenada (aprox 70 nm), enjoying the ride, this phrase kept coming back to my mind: “…. You have made the right decision….”

Last week, and acquaintance from my “previous life” send me a message on Facebook. He is working as an import/export specialist for a rather large corporation, and he asked how I was doing. After my reply, he send me back this phrase. Maybe I am analysing too much, but does it mean that he didn’t?

It is true that we all have the freedom to choose (and have  to accept the consequences of our own decisions). I know that a while back I posted something amongst those  lines, but it seems to be a theme that comes back every now and again. I believe it is a good thing to think about this issue, and do your own reality check: Where am I? Where do I want to go? Am I happy, satisfied? If the answer to this last question is yes, then of course continue, but what if the answer is no, not really? In the end it is really up to you….

A swim in the park


Yes my dear Friends,

Not a typing error, indeed a swim in the park… In Moliniere Point, (Grenada) is an underwater sculpture park, created by Jason Decaires Taylor.(

Most pieces are at between 4-5 meters depth placed on open sand patches in between the corrals.

It is fun to discover, whilst snorkelling,  the various locations, and the first was the full circle of women and men (true scale), hand in hand looking outward…. , mysterious, powerful in a certain way.

Different emotions, and shocking even, at the site with naked corpses spread out over the clear sand patch… first I thought it was something else…

Schools of fish swimming around the sculptures, and then the mandatory mermaid (of course), then a bench, and another circle of smaller men like figures, also hand in hand facing out, but this one was deeper, older and already kind of damaged, but still awesome to look at.


It was a great weekend in Grenada.

Have a great week!
