Farewell to the Nell’s
The Nell family joined us 10 1/2 weeks ago, and sailed 861 nautical miles with us, reaching 4 different countries. They left us today to get back to the dirt dwellers life, and we are going to miss them!
We regrouped this morning and had a family planning meeting on what we need to do to get ready for our next three guests who arrive tomorrow. We are so excited to see my mom, sister and nephew. After making a list of needed supplies, we thought the best plan of attack would be to rent a car and gather some supplies. It took me about 5 minutes to get car sick! I seem to have difficulty moving faster than about 7 or 8 knots. Everything passed by so quickly. Stores we recognize from the mainland US, fast food places and other businesses all zoomed by…or maybe we zoomed by them. All I remember was that a lot of zooming was going on!
We finally returned and stowed all the nonsense away.
It rains quite a bit here. Just from last nights down pour, Emma collected 3 buckets full of water.
This evening she bathed in the sky water and washed her hair in it.
Here in the main salon tonight, it’s a little bit of heaven. Danny has his gorgeous Teton 10 string guitar hooked up to speakers and has been playing his guitar for hours while Mycah is singing into the mic. I love her voice. When the two of them sing together it melts my heart.
I spoke with Hunter today, and our sweet grand daughter is growing beautifully. At almost 23 weeks along, she is now about 8” long and 1 lb in weight. I can’t wait to hold her!!!
