Where's the sun?01/08/2010
I know we won't get much sympathy from up North, but Rebecca's concerned her tan might be fading. Some tropical something is moving through with a bit of rain, and a couple days ago, a lot of rain and lighting Other than the unseasonal weather disturbance, the living is easy. We've got great wireless at The Sands Hotel, some nice 'neighbors' in the Lagoon, and just enough boat and town projects to stay busy. My brother John and his friends arrive today by air, land and sea, i.e. plane, bus and water taxi. Then Kerry and Jane join us, followed by David and Vernice. Looks like this beach town will be home until mid-February. We like it here.

You know you've found a fun town when the directions all start with "From the Big Tree."
Both Rebecca and Sammy manage to attract their fair share of attention on the beach at Barra.

Life in the Lagoon01/02/2010
The "Lagooners" are enjoying life on the hook without anywhere to be. Hey, anyone have any ideas how to chase off the frigate bird that keeps landing on top of the mast? It might be the hot topic on the morning VHF cruisers net.
Here's a sign in Barra de Navidad. We figure this is where Rebecca should get her next massage.
