Sailing away

Part of the work we do here is across the bay from where we live. While we can see the town from my kitchen window, it's almost an hour drive by car. You can, though, take a motor boat across the bay in about 20 minutes or a sail boat which takes a bit longer, depending on the wind.

So yesterday, after an appointment across the bay, I took the kids, along with Fernando and Luis for a ride home across the bay on a sail boat. After being carried to the boat (note that there is no photo of me being carried) we sat back for the ride. The winds were strong, and it was a bit chilly, but as you can see from the photos, the view was beautiful.

The only time I started worrying was when one of our guides began bailing water. Made me wonder, even if just for a minute, how long I'd be able to swim in the choppy waters.

And then of course, because of the strong winds, Scott actually beat us home in the car!

But the best part was the sunset. Absolutely stunning.
