Salamander - Hello Mary, The Flag Lady

You may recall at the start of this blog that my mission, apart from sailing across the Atlantic, was to meet up with Mary the flag lady in St. Lucia. I was to bring greetings from friends Bob and Agneta who had met Mary 20 years ago when they had sailed the Atlantic in the ARC.

Well today that all came together nicely! I found Mary, sitting in the shade, and close by her brightly coloured flags draped around the trunk of a tree.

I introduced myself to her and shared my story, much as I have shared with you the past few weeks.

She was delighted to see me and to hear news from Bob and Agneta, who had sent their best wishes via me.

Her friend kindly took a photo for us to capture the moment and I can safely report back to Bob and Agneta that Mary is doing well.

I ordered a St. Lucia flag from her that I am due to pick up later in the week!

It's great to have completed the whole story now. I hope that you have enjoyed reading the adventures of Salamander on the ARC 2022.

The crew has already dispersed though some of us are staying on until after the prize giving to enjoy all that St. Lucia has to offer.

Thank you to everyone who has helped make my ARC so special and I look forward to further adventures in the future.

Enjoy your sailing, stay present and live your life.

Until the next time …..

Cheers Tim
