s/v Skylark
It's Always An Adventure
Chance meeting
Elizabeth
12/25/2011, Nelson's Dockyard, English Harbour, Antigua

Our friends on Borealis told us to be on the lookout for this couple, Tyson and Judith who were anchored at English Harbour. They happened to be the very first people we ran into and I just happened to remember the name of their sailboat. This one's for you guys on Borealis.

Love the long earring in one ear.

My real vote for best outfit.

I loved this woman's outfit, top to bottom. Check out her phenomenal hat, long braid, off-the-shoulder look, the height of her heels. She was quite stunning. I'm talking about the woman on the left, right?

Luna's Scarf

Luna got lots of photo opps today due to her cute Santa scarf. She wanted to charge people for pictures but we explained it was Christmas Day and we'll only allow that on Boxing Day. Except she doesn't have a Boxing Day outfit.

If it hadn't been for my head cold making me feel less than saucy, I was going to wear this same exact outfit. Imagine our embarassment had we both worn the identical thing?

Enjoying the reggae music

These two were eager to pose for my camera as they enjoyed the band.

Loved, loved, loved the photos! Now you're having fun, huh?
I sent you a ton of pictures one by one....sorry, but hope you enjoy them.
Christmas Day
Elizabeth
12/25/2011, Nelson's Dockyard, Antigua

What a party! Lots of people, many dressed in outfits, a million Santa hats, champagne sold cheaply by the bottle (we stuck to beer), good food, a killer Reggae band and good mix of locals, tourists, yachters, cruisers, rich, not so rich, young and old, all colors, a multitude of nationalities. My head cold was manageable due to lots of sinus medicine for at least several hours which was plenty for both of us. We had a gelato before heading back to Skylark and feel it was a good Christmas all in all. We spoke to the kids, exchanged emails with family and friends, and talked to a family member who is having a bit of a tough time these days. Now it's back to the grind of fixing our broken boat parts, taking care of business and relaxing for a few more days. I am hoping my cold is much better by tomorrow. Merry Christmas everyone.

Santa leaving by dinghy

We had no idea Santa could be picked up by dinghy, brought to one's boat, then brought back to the North Pole by dinghy. He must be hot.

Merry Christmas, you three. Gosh, I wish we were together. Yesterday, as I stood at the sink, I was flooded with memories of holidays we've celebrated together...we sure do love you and really, really miss you smiles and warm hugs!
