And I mean brighten!
I'm going to think it was my Dad and sister...
This sunset lasted over an hour!
We had beautiful music on, a $2 US bottle of Tempranillo and a great dinner.
And it was just the two of us.
Not bad for a Mexican Thankgiving!
So here are some things for me to be thankful for:
Family - Incredible Mom, wonderful supportive siblings & siblings-in-law, the best nieces and nephews and the charming, handsome, kind husband!
Jim's Family - Not that we see most of them often, but John is an amazing brother-in-law and I miss the others!
Friends - Oh wait, I have none of those... Oh yes I do! Friends in Ventura, friends spread out over Mexico, all over the USA and the traveling ones we met while cruising who are spread out all over the world.
Health - We are still kind of ok on this - could be better, but certainly could be worse!
Boat - I love this boat! "Thistle" you were great for 12 years. "Strega" you were great for those gazillion island trips, but "Meerkat" you are the best!
Radioactive Boaters - The same 5 people who chat on the vhf non-stop: "Yakker", "Yakker", this is "Non-Stop Chatter", "Talks-a-Lot", Talks-a-Lot" this is "Yakker", "Non-Stop Chatter", "Non-Stop Chatter" this is "Talks-a-Lot" - something to drive me slowly insane because I am not already insane.
Opportunity - The opportunity to try out this alternative lifestyle once again and not have to do the 8-5 grind.
Open Minds - Thanks to the people for supporting us in our attempt at this opportunity.
Barking Dogs - Gives me something to complain about.
Food and Wine - that is a given.
