‘Tis the Season!
Merry Christmas to all.
This will be our first Christmas, on a boat, in a foreign land.
Sometimes, you have to stop and enjoy where you are. The new friends. The new nation. The season as you have never celebrated it before.
We put lights on Spiritus. We are playing Christmas Music. We attend church in another language. Christmas Mass should be very interesting now that we speak a little more spanish.
We tried a bright red Christmas cactus fruit called the ‘pitayah’ or Dragon Fruit.
But Christmas is on us.
Not a creature is stirring …. except for this mouse!
The stockings are hung on the mast with great care … in the expectation St Nicholas, soon will be ….. here.
Feliz Navidad from our family on Spiritus.
