Back to Florida we Go!

Santa who?!?
Sorry for the lack of action around here.  Isla and I have been busy spending time with friends and family and we even braved the mall a couple of times in (failed) attempts to see Santa (waiting 2 hours to see Santa for a baby who has no clue who he is?  No thanks).  Aside from the holiday hubbub, I've also come down with a nasty cold which had me all but bedridden the past two days.  No bueno.  After a zillion cups of peppermint tea, countless bowls of chicken noodle soup and two nights of twelve hours of sleep I'm on the mend, which is good.

Asante is doing great and sitting pretty as ever in her slip.  Leaving a boat in the water for any length of time can be worrisome.  Despite the fact that I prepped the boat well by closing all the seacocks, shutting off our batteries, and battening down all the hatches there are still the "what if's" that float around in your head.  Luckily, we have two friends who periodically checked on her which brought peace of mind.  And I'm happy to report that I received word that the leak in the aft cabin is no more after re-bedding the pushpit!  Hooray for small victories.  Wily boat leaks are the enemy...

Isla and I are travelling back to the boat tomorrow.  It will be the first time I'm travelling alone with her and it should be interesting considering this one of the craziest travel weeks of the year and there is a winter storm barreling towards us (which our early flight will avoid).  While I'm sad we're going to miss the season's first big snow, I'm excited to be greeted by the warm Florida sunshine on the other side!

Lucky you. We fly north on Christmas Eve and I'm not looking forward to snowy flights and snowy roads. Hans doesn't know it yet but I'm going to insist on driving while we're up there. And that cold of yours will clear up as soon as you get back here to warm temps and lots of sunshine!
