Arrival to La Paz !!

We arrived to Marina Palmira, La Paz just after 12:30. Ahhhhh ! It feels good to be back. With the boat cleaned up and feeling the need to cool off, I am ready for the pool. But I am re-directed by Dan to meet the family onboard s/v Blue Sky. The swim will have to wait. Jim, Emma, Phoebe and Drake have just completed a 5 year circumnavigation and I can't wait to meet them.
Wow !! I stare at 12 year old Phoebe - who was just a bit older than Savannah when they started their journey. Looking at this amazing almost teenager, gives me goosebumps -as I get a glimpse at a future Savannah. She is well-spoken, polite, obviously super-intelligent, and extremely worldly and outgoing. Her brother Drake is just as amazing. Their Mom and Dad (Emma and Jim) are over the top friendly and invite me to join them for something cold aboard s/v Blue Sky - their home and magic carpet for the last 5 years. Emma pours a chilled white wine for me and Jim is super-generous with the Tecate for Dan. The time passes quickly as we listen to one amazing story after another. Ann makes popcorn and shares her fresh made dried fish.

We are laughing and chatting when I hear a very familiar ' Lisaaaaaaaaaaaaa' !!!! I know it is Josie, and jump off the boat. We laugh and hug! Ahhhhhh! Eeeeeeee !! We are looking at each other as if in a dream. Josie says ' you are here, you are here !! and not leaving in a week !!' It's a fabulous moment! We spend the rest of the evening getting caught up with each other and enjoy a lovely evening on s/v Blue Sky.
