We are so excited for all of you…living our dreams for you (and, maybe the ones we had(have) for ourselves)!  Enjoy every minute…be in the moment, even the challenging ones that seem terrible at the time…you will look back upon them fondly some day. And it’s those tough times that will teach you the most about yourselves!

As we sit here at Lake Winnipesaukee looking out at a frozen lake we are thinking of all of you experiencing all the South Pacific has to offer.

Hi Marija and everyone!  We just love reading all logs and pretending that we too are walking the decks and able to witness the marvelous sights and experiences you each describe.
