|Murray adjusting to|
Vermont in December
We have left the warmth of the Rio Dulce for the chill of Vermont. While Atalanta is on the hard for her “make-over” we are in Colchester to celebrate the holidays with family and friends. Richard stepped off the plane in Burlington wearing shorts. He traded those for long pants the next day and one day later it snowed and he needed to add boots to his wardrobe. Murray wasn’t all that excited about being in the snow. However, it’s lovely coming back to such a beautiful place and to have a home here we can call our own.
|Preparing Atalanta for paint|
Puerto Morelos is home to a small restaurant, Tacos.com which we believe serves the finest tacos in the world and we managed to get to eat there 3 times. We also had fresh ceviche on the beach and margaritas made with lots of fresh lime juice. This is not the place for us to stay if we want to lose weight!
We return to Guatemala on December 30 and will need several days to put the boat back together and shop for provisions. Then we anticipate sailing north to Isla Mujeres, Mexico, the Dry Tortugas, Key West and the Exumas. We will arrive in Charleston, SC by April 15 and then Atalanta will find her way back to her old mooring in Bristol RI. We will spend the summer in Vermont, sailing in New England waters, and planning our next adventure.
We wish you the happiest of holidays and hope the spirit of the season fills you with joy.
