New Years 2007!!!
New Years 2007
We brought in New Year’s 2007 with another fun get-together aboard KaijaSong and celebrated not only New Year’s Eve, but also, Kaija’s Birthday (Jan 1). Judy and Greg, S/v Lone Star Love, hosted a wonderful Birthday brunch with homemade Biscuits and Gravy, Texas style and had a day not soon forgot as birthday brunches go. (pictures from New Years)
We spent almost 5 weeks out on the Belizean Atolls. We highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking to ‘get away from it all’ and just enjoy peace and quiet. The snorkeling and diving some of the most incredible to be found anywhere on the planet. Among the dozen other boats in the anchorage, you might see one of the more unusual examples of "floatsmanship" , in the very unique 4-story catamaran. It is one of the local dive boat/hotel vessels that are seen daily in these waters. (picture of snorkeling and boat)
In the words of our friend, the immortal Capt Don, “Outstanding”
This was our longest visit at anchor since our cruising life began, and reluctantly we decided to leave, but with new horizons ahead, and friends awaiting, off we set for an overnight sail to the Bay Islands of Honduras. We arrived next morning at Jonesville Bight, Roatan, and as we sailed by the bay, our friends Don & Yvonne hailed us on the radio, S/v Usquebach, who are building a home on the beach we just sailed by.
