What was the best part of your trip?
My kids would be jealous of the time you had to play. We tend to spend no more than two nights in one place, and the would prefer to spend the week at one or two islands.

There were many best parts. In Rosario, a guy turned on the underwater lights on his boat, and our kids could see fish, plankton, eels, and jellyfish all doing their nocturnal things.

My son was very proud to catch the four rock crabs for us to eat.

Maybe the best was when we were ghosting along in San Juan Channel with the wind, and a Dall porpoise came and jumped out of the water at the stern and bow of our boat. Sailors are supposed to like that sort of thing, and we certainly did.
