Chocolate in the making

There are many ways to save money and great possibilities to stay self sufficient when sailing the seas. You could make your own chocolate for example. That's just what Alex is up to at the moment, drying the cocoa beans (from the cocoa fruits we got in Dominica the other day) in the sun while we're sailing towards St Martin. Perfect day here by the way. 14-16 knots of wind from E-NE, flat sea and blue skies. Arriving to our new boat tomorrow afternoon.
