Happy New Year!

We had a nice time partying with the cruisers hanging out at Land n Sea in Golfito.

The fireworks shooting got a little crazy around midnight. Tim has a small brass cannon that is just perfect for aiming rockets. There was a playful 'exchange of fire' between the 3 marinas. But everyone was pretty careful to aim away from the boats. Nothing caught fire and everyone seems to have come away from the evening with all their limbs intact. Tim did most of the dangerous stuff out in his lancha.

Dave went with him on one trip in the lancha to fire off some of our old flares. These were the big expensive offshore hand-held parachute flares, all with expiration dates in the 1990's. When fired correctly, every one of them worked. On the other hand, the little pencil flares...none of them worked.

Moral: don't trust your life to the cheap stuff.

This may have been the first time in several years that we actually stayed up til midnight.

It's a beautiful day in Golfito, and we are very glad to be back aboard.
Happy New Year, everyone!
