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.
