Living without our Skipper

Well life has been quiet without Steve. With it just being Schooner and I, we seem to just sit out in our lounge area I made. I think Im going to name it the Southern Gypsy Lounge.

We also take evening walks to the Palapa where the other cruisers hang out. Life is nice and relaxing, for now. Guests are coming soon. A friend from Texas is staying a week and another friend from Canada will over lap a few days and stay for two weeks.

Steve got to see one of the Galapagos islands. It was cool because it happened around his birthday. They had to wait there for a part that broke on one of the other boats. They used their part to fix the problem which allowed that boat to continue so it would arrive on time in Tahiti. That man is so lucky sometimes.

He enjoyed his time there and they replaced the part and on back in transit. So probably another four or five weeks.

Hope you enjoy the pictures

Remolding the Sea Birth

Well the Sea Birth is as done as it is going to get for now. Kenny did a great job. When Steve gets back we will make a few decisions that need to be done and complete it.

Update on Steve

Just wanted to give all of you an update on things. Steve is out in the Pacific on his way to Tahiti. He was in contact with me while he was in Panama. Sent a few pictures of the passage through the canal. He said he was the cook for breakfast and lunch. They had to bring on an additional three pepple for the passage. Once on the other side they stocked back up and fixed a few things.

So now he his on his way... he is able to send me an email now and then. Short and sweet ones. Got one this morning saying his has seen two whales.

Im not expecting for him to be there until mid to late June.

And then there was one

Well we had a good week before Steve left for his adventure of assisting to deliver a boat from the Western side of Panama to Tahiti.   It was hard not to have a good week. We have the boat at a gorgeous Hotel Marina Resort that has lovely beaches and grass areas. Lots of interesting animals roam this little Island resort. 

Schooner has loved all the physical activities. Balls and Frisbees to run for everywhere. 

Gorgeous blue and teal water

We really cant complain

In the lobby of the resort we have all the wifi we need. Oh and monkey visitors

Monkeys Monkeys Monkeys 

Oh and my plants love the weather

So Steve left on Tuesday for Shelter Bay Panama. He had a 20 hour flight which consist of 2 very long layovers, tis why the 20 hours. Then he took a bus and a few taxis. He arrived right on time. Met the boat just as it was coming into the marina. 

So this is the boat he will be crewing on to Tahiti. There are two others that are in the small fleet going over. He is one of three on this particular boat. Im not sure how many are on the other two boats. I have heard one of the boats has a couple from Kemah Tx as well who have mutual friends. Always cool to see how small the world really is 

While Steve is gone Im supervising a remold job of our sea birth. It will become a couch without loosing all that great storage. Hope to have pictures for you soon

Other than that this is what I will be doing

Oh and this. Lol

Until Next Time
