Transit Prep Underway

It's 48 hours until departure! Roseway leaves the dock in St. Croix on Sunday morning May 16 and it is now countdown time. Crew are busily repairing, cleaning, organizing, stowing, cooking, and saying goodbyes. With 22 souls on board, Roseway will depart for Bermuda and then on to Boston, arriving end of May. Like our falcon friend who lives in our cross-trees for much of the year here in Gallows Bay, we migrate north for the summer season. It's a bittersweet time of year--ready to get going and set our sites on new ports but sad to leave our island community behind. And for some crew, this is the last transit aboard Roseway--for others who have just arrived, it's only the beginning.
