For those of you who do not know me, I
have been creating this website for Dick and
Dotti for about a year now. When they heard I had
to be in Austin, Texas for 10 days for a meeting,
they graciously invited me to join them for 10
days of sailing prior to my meeting. It was the
trip of a lifetime!
After a few days of preparing the
boat for sailing, some sightseeing around San
Carlos, swimming in the marina pool and several
opportunities to meet and enjoy getting to know
their friends Bob and Jane from the Sailing
Vessel Kokomo, Bud and Penny from Sweet Pea and
Duncan and Robin, we were off!
What a thrill this was for me! My
parents were sailors in the Caribbean, so this
brought back many bittersweet memories for
me....enjoying the quiet of the sea, cool breezes
as we sailed the boat, being awestruck by the
incredible canopy of stars which are invisible
from home, sleeping to the gentle rocking of the
boat at anchor and delightful snorkeling in the
clear, warm Mexican waters.
I am so grateful to Dick and
Dotti for showing me such a wonderful time and
making me feel like such an honored guest.
Perhaps sometime I can join them again in another
exotic port of call!
