Still Here

It's been months since I last wrote.  So much to say, but right now we are just trying to get AMARA out of Panama and on her way to Belize where Martin, John, Chris and Dunbar will be meeting Lily and me.

We are planning on taking her up the coast of Mexico and then on up to Ft. Lauderdale.

Here is a fun video that Chris posted of AMARA in Shelter Bay in Panama.

Martin at the top of the mast of AMARA.

We haven't been on AMARA for a year, so when Martin boarded her last week, he saw that there was much to do.  Finally they were able to pull her out and get going only to figure out 3 hours later that they had gotten bad fuel.  UGH!  So they had to turn around and head back to Shelter Bay. This seems to be the demise of AMARA.

I'll be sure to get back to this blog this week to update you on what has been going on these past few months.  Martin has been up to a lot getting ready for his sail across the Pacific in March.  Pretty exciting.  Right now, it's late and I have been up trying to get parts for AMARA that I will be bringing down with me when we meet Martin and crew in Belize.  Wish me luck!
