Gabriellas grandpa
Tomorrow is the day I've been waiting for. After doing last minute laundry and food shopping I will cast off for all points south. I went to my skin Doctor for the last time to retrieve my boipsy he sent off to Obregon. It was as he suspected(but not me) to be carcinoma. Skin cancer. He said he cut the bump off my nose deep and wide enough to get all the roots of the problem out. He thinks it will be alright. I told poor Arianna in the Singlar office about the results and now she is more worried than I am. I will post her pic in this blog. We had our nice little pizza party with all the employees and were they ever appreciative. It made them feel so good that they were appreciated by gringo cruisers and not all of us want things cheaper and done the way it is in the states. I think this place is the place that I've really gotten attached to even though this is'nt even close to being in the tropical paradise that is must be the people and the friendships they bring. Susan, the only new thing on the outside of the boat is a nice stainless barbecue on my rail. The hulls are the whitest they have ever been. Everyone, look in my picture gallery and scan down to the bottom to the new album to see the new pics and my nice art work on the bottom of the boat dedicated to my beautiful grandaughter Gabriella. I don't know where my next post will be from because I won't make up my mind as to destination until I'm in the middle of the Sea of Cortez.

About: After spending the most wonderful 5 years of my life with my grandaughter Gabriella, it's my turn to go cruising. I'll keep going as long as it's fun and if I can get rid of this nagging feeling of returning to my grandaughter..
