The exciting part is that we know we will be out for at least four weeks. Yesterday we packed up the final items and moved onto to the boat. Today we drove home again to get the things that are always forgotten and then remembered as you drive a block away from your home. Fortunately, out mooring in Puerto Escondido is only 15 minutes from home.
Chandler and Henry jumped in. It was their first time swimming naked. Why does that make kids giggle so much? Ann put on one of our favorite meals that she had kept frozen since buying it at Costco months ago. She read from the Anne of Green Gables series as the sun set and we did dishes off the stern. The lights came on from the town of Loreto, across the sea. We sat on the bow and found planets, heard crickets, and fish jumping, and laughed at Chandler's rendition of Henry playing dinosaurs in the V-berth while singing, "Yeah Man, I'm riding a slow dinosaur. The lizard's coming up behind me..."
A slight roll to the anchorage. All good. Day one.
