Home at Isla Navidad01/23/2010
After sailing 3,000 miles in the past year to get here, we're slowing it down and soaking it all in. We've taken up residence at the Isla Navidad Resort, where Liberte rests on E Dock in front of the mission-style Grand Bay Hotel under the palm trees and shockingly blue skies. We've made some great friends, sailed on a magnificent yacht and hung out by one of the resort's three swimming pools just about every day. David's getting a lot of writing done, and on her morning walks Rebecca's found one of Sammy's favorite trails yet, leading to a 'Top 10' beach. The waterfront town of Barra de Navidad is a quick dinghy ride away. This feels like home until late February, when we head north to Banderas Bay in time for regatta season.
Besides Liberte, this might be Rebecca's favorite boat name, and one of our favorite islands of all the islands so far.
This is what I wake up to01/23/2010
It's morning in Liberte's aft cabin, and I'm snuggled up with my two girls.
Rebecca heard them chattering away in a strange language, in their nightly tribal raid on the rubbish bins.
Sometimes we dress up01/23/2010
A clean shirt, Rebecca's new Mexican dress, and a reception on the 6th floor of the Grand Bay Hotel, with Barra de Navidad and Melaque over our shoulders.
Great hills and cobblestone streets that lead to beaches and hilltop views, with no traffic, and best of all, no leash.
