here in the Cayman Islands there are the facilities your wife desires, and we have the water your looking for, however I think I have the only AI in Cayman (tho there are hobiecat rentals) I have a small business to run so can't use my AI as much as I'd like so your welcome to use it
That is a very kind offer. We spent one day on Grand Cayman when on a P&O winter cruise. We both liked what we saw in the short time we were there and my wife has often said that she would like to go back and stay longer.
It is a very good idea, and we shall look into it. With your local knowledge, do you recommend any particular hotels?
We spent two weeks on Koh Samui a few years back. Thailand is a beautiful country and has good weather, a wonderful culture and lovely food. However, when you said
your wife would be happy at least..well...maybe not...!!!!
the maybe not part was correct. The behaviour of bar girls, even in broad daylight, annoyed her and she says that she won't go back to Thailand. It is a shame, because I believe that it would be much more affordable than the Caribbean.
I used to sail in Cardiff bay, but roofracking the AI for a few hours sail was a real pain, so I mostly sail in Llandegfedd reservoir now because that is where the boat is stored fully rigged. I ride my motorbike to Llandegfedd wearing my drysuit, step off, I pull the AI about 20 yards to the slipway and I'm away.
I am looking at storing it on my motorhome roof in the near future so that I can use it anywhere I like, and for longer.
I thought Ger was posting on my behalf as his union is about the same as mine although my wife like to have money in the bank.
It seems we are doppelgangers. My wife also likes to have money in the bank; at least for as long as the shops are open.
