We are back in the Seattle area after our vacation in the BVI’s and coming home then making the trip to Spokane for Grandson Jackson’s birth. Mother, baby and Father are all doing extremely well. The BVI’s were great, and it was so fun spending the time with our good friends Jeff and Cheryl. Christmas was wonderful, spent at The Bitter End on Virgin Gorda. We did something fun on Christmas. Since there wasn’t any gift exchange for any of us on the boat, after a few minutes of thought the four of us took turns and told each other what, if there were no limits, we would give each other. The answers were truly amazing and showed the depth of love we have for each other. Mostly it wasn’t things but life improvements, it was taking away Cheryl’s arthritis; a magic photo album for Scott to go with all his stories; just fun between 4 people who enjoy each other and care for each other.
The weather was windy with the Christmas Winds in full force and predictable. It made for great sailing but did dampen some of the swimming and paddle boarding. We still spend time doing these but just not every day.
Now we are seeing family members, taking care of some business, taxes and will in a week or so start looking at dates to head back down south to the boat. We already have family and friends booking time to come down and join us so it will be a great spring season.
Life is Good!
