Spa Day for the Lady (Chiapas)

This is the way we clean the prop….

The "Team" of spa techs…..I have only had the experience of ONE tech…. She must feel REALLY special!
Special attention to the removal of the unwanted growth.

Freshly scrubbed…
Feeling pretty darn good!

MAKE OVER!   New Bottom Paint!

Dock Party…..What a Great Group of Sailors!

Too Hot To Blog

The high has been 95 (99 inside the boat), the low 84.  If one has air conditioning in the boat, it is likely they will remain inside.  That being said, it is a bit too hot to blog…so here are a few photos to help tell what we have been up to this last week.

We visited the archeological sights in El Salvador.  The most impressive was  Joya De Ceren, the Pompay of Central America. 

Bucket takes a rest after some archeological hiking.

Hey! Did you hear something or someone working outside the boat? Wholly cow!  The dock is giving way to the tide!

Birthday Gifts

 Do you think he knows how fortunate he is?  I am here to help him realize he is one blessed five year old.  Zayden had a great day.  Thank you to everyone who participated in making his day extra special.  

     He received virtual birthday cards from his Unker and Auntie Sylvia in Idaho and his good friend Mary Erba in Nevada.

     He received birthday wishes through email from his family around the world. 
     Thank you:

     Grandma and Grandpa Smith in France

     Grandma and Grandpa Collier in Idaho and best buddy Caleb
     Great Grandma and Grandpa Dietz in Utah
     Carlee and Jaicee
     Aunt Hopey, Jaiden and the rest of the Reitz family
     Aunt Linda and Uncle Gary in Parma
     Aunt Shawn and Uncle Gary

     He had a great birthday party with the cruisers and friends here in Bahia Del Sol in El Salvador, Central America. He was surrounded by cake, balloons, squirt guns, a piƱata (filled with countless goodies of toys and little treasures), swimming pool, and best of all the laughter and love of genuinely good people.
