Vixen leaving tomorrow for Hawaii
This morning we made the final run to Mercado Abasto and loaded up with fresh fruits and vegetables. The picture above is of the papaya shop. The papayas on the upper shelves are bigger than a five gallon jerry can. Our best deal was fifty pounds of oranges for five dollars. Because of all this food, extra water and diesel Vixen is showing just a sliver of bottom paint at the waterline. We'll have one more stop tomorrow at Isla Contadora for a swim and then shove off for Hawaii. On these long voyages I spend at least a few minutes thinking about every person that I've ever known so be assured well be thinking of you. Below is Soli's homemade Monopoly board to keep us occupied during the passage.

Smooth sailing and fair winds to carry you ... and you can practice saying Melikalikmaka ( ? spelling ) Merry Christmas in Hawaiian! I recall how much our children (when little ) loved playing with sounds of Hawaiian words, because they were so musical, when we used to visit Peter's folks there years ago. Look forward to the next update. Grey (actually black of a winter's night at 5pm ) and pouring with rain here! Big snow predicted in the mountains over the weekend. The skiers are ecstatic ... there hasn't been any snow! Be well - fondly Ann.
