Beautiful drive to Vegas

Posted on

This morning Danny and Hannah had about 100 miles to go.


The weather through the night was kind to them with pleasant winds and 2 meter swells. Later in the day swells reached 4 meters (12ft).

At this point they have 4 – 5 hours of sailing time left before reaching Shelter Bay in Colon.

My drive went really well today. It rained hard for a few hours, which I absolutely loved. I love the way colors and smells become more intense when it rains.

I was so taken by the beautiful cloud formations and gorgeous landscape. We live in an incredibly beautiful world!

Several times along the way I had to stop and take pictures…

I stopped in St George and visited with our good friends, Chad and Marci Nell.  It’s been 3 years since we’ve seen each other, but it felt like we hadn’t skipped a beat in each others lives. What wonderful people.


Now I am here in Vegas at my beautiful sister, Christy’s house, and will get a good nights sleep.  I am so grateful for many things…a vehicle that works well, loving friends and family, a free country where I can safely travel and the fact that I get to see my sweet Darling and Hannah very soon.

    AMARA is at Shelter Bay right now too! right in front of the restaurant. When are you going through the canal?

      Hi Kym, Danny and Hannah saw Amara and commented on how beautiful she is. We don’t have plans of going through the canal right now, we’ll be exploring the Caribbean for a bit first.

    Glad she is safe. We plan on taking AMARA through the canal (for the second time) in September and over to Hawaii and then over to Japan. Good idea to explore the Caribbean, the San Blas islands were some of my favorites and I wish that we would have spent more time there.

      We will probably be there next week again. Amara is a couple slips over from us. We might use Shelter Bay as home base for a bit then continue exploring around the ABC’s, San Blas etc for a while. So many places to see before leaving the area. We hope to see all down there!Need us to do anything on Amara for you?
