Scott ran to shore with our buddy Luuck for a quick happy hour and Isla and I sat in the cockpit, chatting away, nibbling on dinner and enjoying the quiet peace around us. Suddenly, she looked behind me and started pointing excitedly: "WHOA!!" she exclaimed in amazement. She looked back at me with wide-eyes to be sure that I, too, was registering what she saw. The palette of purples, pinks, blues and yellows on the horizon was indeed beautiful. Isla couldn't get enough of it. "Whoa! Whoa! WHOA!!" she would blurt out, over and over. It was amazing and I don't think a thing in the world could have wiped the smile from my face at that moment. She watched in awe as the sun transformed the sky, and I watched in awe at how much this mini person has enriched - and continues to enrich - our lives. Watching a sunset in the Caribbean is quite a treat, but watching it through the eyes of an enchanted child? Even better.
I have video proof of this, of course internet is too slow to upload, but I captured it. Perhaps I'll find time to share it later on. Anyway, we're raising anchor shortly and heading for Ronde Island. It's uninhabited so it's unlikely that you'l be hearing for us from there. I'll write more when I can! In the meantime, try to live your day with a little more "whoa!"
