We sailed an ocean to Barbados.
Here’s a few pics of the journey. And evidence of the fish!

Glad you had a safe passage…. Im looking forward to your updates….and what next. Would a vegetarian survived that leg of the trip.
No cheesy chips on this passage, might have been tough for a veggie!
Really enjoying reading your blogs, and seeing the pics. Amazing!
It’s lovely to know folk are out there following our little story. Thanks for watching!
Toby reckons top photo is king mackerel…

Ps – is the rule the same for eating yellow fish as for snow?
Hi Both, what a journey eh? You’ve been to some beautiful looking places – I bet that’s also been within…
Love Ash & Maria x
Great pics. Looks like Brownes Beach at Carlisle Bay ?
You may have been to Barbados before, but just in case if you can still bear the thought of more fish of the barbecued variety, head down to Oistins where there are loads of shacks that do a great Barbados style fish & chips with Banks beers. Ask the locals which night is best.
Will head down there tonight for Friday night and chips.Thanks for the tip. Engine is still sweet, in fact dave thinks it’s running better now than before which is somewhat ironic.
Wonderful! and relieved……. we feel we have lived the journey with you! Have loved your vivid descriptions.
So pleased you got there safely. Congratulations!!!
Thanks for the email to say you arrived, your parents will be proud.
