Working on Tanda Malaika
This morning Danny cooked us all a delicious breakfast with eggs, sausage and cheese, then rang the big brass dinner bell to call everyone up from their berths to enjoy it. It was a wonderful way to start the day.
After that we returned to the anchorage by Bocas Marina for Jeff, the little midget mechanic man to work on the boat a bit more. He has the funniest sense of humor and had Danny and I laughing several times today. While on our way over there, I sat on the bow and across from me, Danny sat on the other bow chair with his remote in hand, and navigated the boat the entire way to Bocas from his perch.
Emma and I took the dinghy into town for some filters we needed for the engines. She is so fun to be with. I love her spunk and love for life. She is such a free spirit and isn’t afraid of being a true individual with solid unique opinions and ideas. I find her so refreshing and I love her so much. In just two days, her and Aidan are going to be 13!! At that point all 11 of our creatures will be teenagers and older. I remember when they were all little, people would say, ‘enjoy them while they’re young, because when they are teenagers they won’t be so fun to be around.’ I have to say that I LOVE my teenagers. They have been nothing but amazing individuals who have taught me so much and who keep me laughing.
After returning to Red Frog Marina, Oom Steve came by and he and Danny broke out the guitars and sang and played for a while. I love hearing them play, and I especially love listening to Danny sing.
This evening Danny and I have been looking at flights to return to Idaho to be with my sweet Mom and Dad. The time has come…
