Thanks. The name isn't so bad now that we're out of high school, eh?

Now that I have the requisite number of non-spammy posts I can go out and repost the link to my blog that got swept up earlier.

I wouldn't suggest that it is one of the "Best" blogs of 2014 at all, but it's hopefully at least a "Not Bad" blog of 2014. I have gotten very favorable commentary on the blog, from some people that weren't even my mother.

Though 2014 has been rather unexciting (or frustrating, depending on where you sit) so far it should be getting better within a week or so.

I recognize some of her pictures from around the area, though I don't recall the boat. There are a lot of boats on the hard there and I'm not sure she's in a marina. I love to drop by and meet people that do things like this.

Unfortunately no time for that now, we should be leaving Panama the day after our USCG documentation arrives here and the next few days will be a mad scramble!

A young German woman decides do "untie the lines" and set off on an epic adventure beginning in Panama where she buys a boat... it seems, nearly sight unseen.

As you might guess, she discovers it has a few issues. It's awesome for anyone considering buying a used boat or anyone who doesn't mind a toned blonde woman hard at work in the Panama heat, in a sports bra. Aesthetics aside, she seems to be a real trooper, though the issue is still in doubt.

I wish I knew about her last November when we were at Shelter Bay.

PCP,
We anchored just behind the main harbour wall off the beach next to the fuel pump in Millazzo and had no problem with the authorities. The local fishermen there (all sat under trees playing cards) even offered to watch our dinghy and boat but we felt perfectly safe there.
I agree about the wine but having found a local wine merchants near here who sell some cracking stuff at 1.60 a litre it is hard to remember anything.

There are so many wonderful places here I can never do it justice but the best thing about the island is..
The People..... they are just so friendly and so willing to accept you. We are coming back for winter next year.

Thank you so much for looking at the website and for taking the time to comment as it does mean a lot to us... you are luckily to have relatives here to visit.
You forget about the wine Lots of varieties and one of the best from Italy. I just love Nero d'Avola.
