|You can't see the lines, but they're there.|
And thank goodness for family that doesn't! We didn't want to keep the information from our family, but knowing no one at home was watching the weather out here...we opted to wait until all was good before informing them. Hopefully they'll forgive us. Both families have had enough to worry about without unnessessary worry for us.
This storm is really strange though...it's late in the season and they rarely come this low in lattitude. Kind of a fluke thing. And really hard to track. We wanted to have a typhoon party, but we were lacking in the ability to go buy a keg and watch the weather channel. So we decided to cook popcorn and watch Surf's Up instead :).
|His brother was hiding in the water but it made a cute picture.|
|Some kids in their canoes paddling around our boat. |
Canoes here are like bikes for the kids at home...everyone has one
and knows how to paddle.
|The actual light in the lighthouse. I believe they|
said it was working up until 10 or so years ago. Looks pretty rusted out

So, as we sign off, we're going to go eat a few of our (20 lbs) bananas, put a dent in the 2 dozen coconuts in our cockpit (while lacing with a bit of rum) and thank the Lord for giving us another wonderful day.
