Happy New Year everyone!
We've loved reading everyone's mail even when you think it's not worth the written page. Happily, this apple computer picks up the mail using it's program even when we can't get connected to hotmail. .. And I can forget about downloading to the blog.. It's going to be bit by bit. Steve seems to have more luck with the internet, but when I get on it, it literally stops..lol
I've occupied myself with making jewelry from my beach combing.. and I can't wait until we leave for the Sand Blas Islands. Wonder what I'll find there?
Oh, as we were preparing to pick up the anchor and get fuel and water, a huge SPOTTED RAY flew out of the water and landed just in front of the boat.. It was my first sighting, and I think it was the closest I'd like to come to one of them... But it was a beautiful sight and I was stoked about it!
Hopefully there will be more photos posted.. Cartagena is very old city with some very interesting views... and in complete contrast to the outer city limits for the rich and the tourist trade.

Felize Navidad!

We are celebrating Christmas in Cartagena, Columbia with Mark and Michele "Reach" and Sunny and Blake "Slow M'oceans".
Yesterday, at 1:30 pm, aboard Slow M'oceans", we started the celebrations by eating! On the menu, veggie rice paper rolls, Korean pancakes, cheese and sausage plate (Blake needed his meat fix), all topped off with a wonderful noodle dish that Sunny whipped up with the left over veggies that had been prepared for the rolls... we were so stuffed!
We headed home at 4pm and at 6pm we gathered aboard "Lion's Paw" and the eating continued! .. spinach dip served in a loaf of bread, shrimp, crab and pork dim sum and "Reach's" pot stickers and seared Wahoo. We had a wonderful evening and wondered how we could possibly be hungry tomorrow.

Christmas Day.. We had french toast and sliced oranges (so much for not being hungry). Tonight we are going to the home o "Reach" where we will all sit down to a traditional Christmas dinner. Steve and I are bringing the BBQ Turkey breast and mashed potatoes and gravy. It will be another feast I'm sure!

Boxing day, we hope to walk it all off. We plan to go for a self guided tour of the "Old Town" and hopefully I'll be sharing some great pic's with you.

For now, we wish you all a Very Merry Christmas! XO
