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.
