Finally Home!

Posted on

Aundrea and I were up and at the airport by 5:30am for our 6:30am flight. All went well and we landed safely then caught a water taxi to Tanda Malaika.

As we approached Red Frog Marina, my heart raced knowing I was going to see my creatures soon.  All the boats sitting peacefully in the water seemed to softly welcome me home. It’s a bit of heaven.

All the creatures were on the dock waiting, and we embraced over and over again, telling each other how much we missed and love each other.

The creatures were excited to show Aundrea the boat, and were so thrilled to see their sister again.

After the tour they sat and chatted, catching up on sibling stuff, then Emma showed her around the marina.

With blue skies above, the kids set out on the neighbors kayaks and paddle boards.

After that our neighbors joined us with their sweet pup, Libby, and we showed them where Polo Beach is.

It felt so good to be immersed in the ocean again.  We played piggy in the middle and just splashed around for a while. I am so grateful for my wonderful children.  They are so full of love and so incredibly fun to enjoy life with.

On our walk back we saw a baby ray and a sloth.

We got back to the boat just in time for a gorgeous rain storm.

It feels good to be home. Back with my crazy creatures.  Back where the rainforest meets the ocean, where  toucans and parrots can be heard through the foliage and sloths hang lazily in the trees. Back where life is simple, wind filled sails give me butterflies and at night I am rocked to sleep.
