A prayer for all Sailneters and fellow Sailors in the World.

Hey guys. How are you. Happy New Year.


On my way to my New Years destination, we stopped in the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fátima, where we allways go each year. (Yes, Fátima is in Portugal).

This year, we went earlier and there, I made a prayer at the shrine and chapel, for all our friends and fellow sailors from Sailnet, (and those outside sailnet) that venture thru the seas.

As I do every year, I took the opportunity, and also lit a candle for all of us that go out in the seas and lakes (for my US friends), so we may return home every time, to the joy of our families.

I know some of you are not Catholic or religious, but for those that are, here you go...for those that are not...it won't hurt either, consider it a "good luck" thing..

This year also I placed a special prayer for a certain member here.

God bless us all, and may we be here next year again. Have a Happy 2008, and please come home after you're done sailing.

Thank you and enjoy Fátima.

Alex & Family













More:

While in the North, we also visited the Sanctuary of St. Benedict of the Open Door (S. Bento da Porta Aberta) he was known for some Miracles, specially very ill people, so we stopped there also.










In Fátima there is also a piece of the Berlin wall, so we remember the "things" man does...just so we remeber to stay humble.

Here it is.










Today, my boat went in the water. I am happy.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Giulietta,

Thank you for the kind thoughts and wishes, and for sharing your photos. Portugal clearly takes great pride in her cultural heritage. Happy New Year to you and your family. - John
