In early November of 2019 we flew back to our Grain de Sable in Aruba. Jura was 13 month old, already walking and with lots of curiosity for discovering the World. He loved the water and sun so we could not wait to start sailing and coming back on life a float. This time in Aruba Grain de Sable crew joined my parents and the plan was to prepare the boat, leave Aruba, sail to Jamaica and enjoy Jamaican southern coast as long as possible.
WOULD BE A CRIME TO COMPLAIN:)
We were very exited and having my father and mother aboard was amazing help for both of us. Jura loved traveling, but life on boat with a toddler can be quite hard sometimes. At least in the very beginning. All of us had to get use to new way of cruising😊 Slowing down, being clear about each one responsibilities, keeping eye on our boy in every moment and forgeting about usual tidiness were some of the new things which become casual when you have baby on board.
Thankfully with five of us on board my mother could dedicate time to Jura, me do some small tasks on boat and Egoi with my father fully prepare the boat.
This is a story about our life journey or better said is a story about our life afloat a sailing boat. Our trips, our adventures, our challenges and problems found on the way. Our everyday life floating and our unforgettable moments of sailing and tasting the worldl!
