The combination of traveling in places of scarcity, being frugal, or simply not having any options (very few stores in the coastal Baja desert) means we often just go without.
I don’t know how I missed getting a picture of the awesome super engineered packing job (with integrated handle) that Alan did… but this is sweet. A little girl time. Mairen doesn’t snuggle up to just anybody, but really loved sitting for Alison to brush out her hair.
He and Judy are another branch of the extended cruising family… they live on Milagro in Alameda, and we met them during the month-plus we spent at Gate 11. That was more than three years ago… how cool was it to have them check in and offer to bring goodies? I think this is cruising spirit at some of it’s finest!
The girls looking a crafts projects… Michael sampling our homebrew.
The kids had special treatment- crafts and an excellent book. Thanks to Michael, I am now running again (my tried-and-true trainers are more than 2x the US cost in Oz. I couldn’t stomach it)… and we are eating some sweeeeeeet chocolate chip cookies. We knew we missed those, but didn’t realize HOW much until the first batch started filling the cabin with good smells.
Good thing I have those shoes to run off the extra calories.
