Merry Christmas!!!!!!

From our Christmas tree to yours, Merry Christmas!

IMG_0618This is such a different way for us to spend our holidays, but very festive!  We are really going to miss our families but thank goodness for Skype, we will get to talk to them. Plus we have met some really fun and interesting people who have invited us to spend time with them.

But first thing first, Just Dandy is finally in the water!!!!!  After almost 2 months, a trip to San Diego for parts, and a lot of time waiting for the master mechanic, we put her in the water, yesterday.

In the meantime, we have been keeping busy.  The ex-pat community in San Carlos is busy doing fundraisers for the orphanages.  I even got involved by selling my ‘Looney Bins’.  In an effort to stay out of trouble and fill up time in the long drives we have done, I have been making baskets.  Baskets like you make when in the looney bin, thus the name.  However, all the Canadians around here thought I was asking for loonies, the name of their coins, although they never donated any.  The cost of my Christmas Boutique booth and a percentage of my sales went to charity.  It was a fun day and great to get involved.

Bill and I have also become band groupies.  One of the performers we like is Mark Mulligan, the San Carlos Jimmy Buffett.  He put together a trip to a small historic town, Alamos, which is about 4 hours from here.  We joined a bus load of fun people and spent 3 days at a beautiful hotel, enjoying the history and a great concert.
