Tana's visit on Shindig


We were happy to host our friend Tana over the Christmas week.  She's been sailing with us as well as Rob's parents, over the last couple of decades.  Yes, there is a fountain of youth on Shindig. :)
Our visit started Christmas Eve, with an impromptu dinner ashore with 10 others. Then a Christmas day potluck, turkey and ham provided, with impressive dishes coming out of small galleys.  We left Barra and started our exploration south, re-tracing many of the spots we'd discovered with Bryan.  Lots of snorkeling, hiking, shopping, eating, and lounging pool side when available. 

Merry Christmas!!!!!  Tana brought a suitcase of supplies for Shindig
Coffee, Wine, Trader Joes goodies

Captain Rob and two reindeers

Ensenada Carrizal is a snorkeler's paradise with schools of fish amidst coral reefs

Rob and Tana both snorkeled with underwater cameras - hence the great photos

  3. Great pictures! I am kinda jealous of you right now. Maybe I should go there as well, you all seem so happy on those photos. I need some good changes in my life as well.

  4. Awesome photos! Seems like you guys really had a lot of fun there! Though I still can't accept the idea of celebrating New Year at the beach - it must be cold and snowy! :)
