Rain and other little inconveniences

It rains a lot and hard here!
It's nice that it's cool for the moment, so we enjoy that now. Soon enough it will be hot here in the Caribbean.  We even sleep under feathers! That's really nice. Although the swell makes us roll a lot, so I don't sleep that well.  Maarten sleeps better. 
Saturday and sunday were working day's. The cockroaches war is still going on. So I cleaned the whole kitchen and every cupboard, took everything out and than sprayed. After that we made sure we were gone for a couple of ours, so the bad smell would be gone by the time we got back.
On sunday we cleaned out the bilges. We knew there was a bit of water in them. What we didn't know was the couscous-explosion who had taken place there. It was such a big mess!!! And couscous goes everywhere...bleh. But at last it was al nice and clean again. 
Sunday at 15.30 we discovered a little water leak above the alternator and that the alternator broke down. So no more power and without the sun and wind the sun-panels and wind-generator worked just good enough to keep the fridge cold. And that was important, because we were having a sunday afternoon boat party. 
At 16.00 we were still in our old clothes, when the first guests arrived. With about ten people, drinks, snacks and soup, we had a lovely little party. So the day ended very nice. 

Now it's monday and we're bringing the alternator to the mechanic. It's of course in Caribbean style...he didn't show up in the right time. Now, a couple of hours later, it's dry and time to jump in the dingy to see if he arrived.
