Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all you Salty Sailors and Landlubbers out there!  

This past year and a half has been life changing and unforgettable.  We have made dreams come true; visited some of the most spectacular places on earth; met incredible humans both afloat and on land that will be our friends for life; and our beliefs, values and perspectives have been forever changed for the better.  Thanks for your companionship and for being along with us on our voyage.  We look forward to an even more exciting season in 2015.  

A special thanks to J. Slove (aka Dr. Love) and Allan & Rina back in the States who helped us keep the blog going, mail scanned, and the Tax Man at bay while we’ve been out sailing the vast Pacific.  Without you guys there would have been long periods without blog updates and I’d probably be locked up in some jail for unpaid parking tickets.

We’ll be writing again once we get back to the boat in January.  Much to be done before we shove off again in March/April.  

Merry Christmas,

Lewis & Alyssa

      Hola Amigos! We miss you guys and wish we were in the Barra Lagoon floating in that mud next to you! Ah, how we miss that French Baker and the nice pool at the hotel. We’ll be back someday and we’ll have to throw an epic party. I (Lewis) am having serious withdrawal from being away from the tropics. The tan is gone, replaced by chalky cold skin and I miss Ellie and being afloat. We’ll be reunited in two long weeks and then our universe can be restored. Land is not for us Pirates, right Glennnnn?
      Great to hear from you both. Have an awesome New Years celebration!
      Lewis and Alyssa

Thank You
