I’d been hearing about Merry for days before her arrival. I have to admit, I was a little apprehensive about her coming because I knew it meant I would lose my role as the ” special princess” which I was quite enjoying! Sure enough, she was just as great as everyone said…..and I definitely lost […]

Chopping

December 31st, 2008 · No Comments · La Vida

Here I am, chopping vegies for breakfast omlettes. I must admit……..my culinary skill are not the greatest. I think they could be……but I don’t have much of an interest. Sometimes, if I taste a really good bread or cinnamon rolls or tomato soup or tomoto sauce…..I’ll get inspired and ask for the recipe but other […]

Intentions

December 22nd, 2008 · No Comments · La Vida

I made this for myself to help keep me “centered” Sometimes when I travel, I start to feel a little off center. There is so much going on that is new, so many different people to talk to, coming from such different walks of life and a very relaxed lifestyle that is……….just different than I’m […]

When the dolphins show up……it is a happy day!  Watching them invokes such a playfulness…its all I can do not to jump in a swim with them!

A most wonderful Spinnaker run

December 20th, 2008 · No Comments · La Vida

Sailing away from Isla Isabela to Chacala was a beautiful run!  It was a day sail and we had a wind behind  us(downwind) which meant it was perfect conditions to fly the Spinnaker.  As soon as we got it up, we were running at about 9-10 knots.  What an incredible sensation it is to fly […]

December 14th, 2008 · No Comments · La Vida

After a long sail……..birds started appearing around the boat. We must be getting close to Isabella island, land of the booby (no not what your thinking…..I’m talking about birds!) But you can imagine how many jokes were exchanged over this. Actually, we had a boobie bird on the bow for the entire night and through […]
