29 January 2011 | Marina Vallarta - Banderas Bay
We have just arrived back at the boat having seen Matthew off at the Airport.
He fly's to LA at 5.30pm and then from LA to Brisbane via Melbourne at 9.30pm. He will arrive in Brisbane on the 31st at 11.10am - 24 hours travel time and some 8000 miles away from us again.
It is very hard to come to terms with at the moment. Lots of tears shed by Mum and I as well as Matts buddy Tommy of Perfect Wave (9 years old).
His time with us here in Mexico has been a pleasure and a privilege for us and those friends of ours who have also now become friends of Matts also.
We can now just look forward to the next time he can come and be with us, who knows where that will be and when but until then he will be sadly missed.
I suppose I should take the advice that John Laws gave when he turned off his golden microphone for the final time - DON`T BE SAD IT`S OVER - BE GLAD THAT IT HAPPENED but thats a bit hard at the moment.
We will hang out here until the end of the week until some friends we met at Catalina in LA arrive with some bits and pieces for us and Red Sky and then we will in the company of Perfect Wave leave Banderas Bay and continue our trek south.
