~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It is Christmas Day in paradise... Shelley and I have been crazy busy in the days leading up to Christmas, but now it is here and we miss our family who is not with us but are loving this special time of year....

We have put the boat back into the Caleta (Marina) because there is another Norte (Strong north wind)... We are staying with Mike & Margaret and really enjoying ourselves.... 

Yesterday, I got tossed out of our kayak by a big wave and I have managed to hurt my back again (still)... However with Christmas, I hope to rest a little and get things back to normal quickly....

Here are some picture from the last few days...

Last Saturday, after we gave out all the school supplies, we helped some of the island ex-pats with a Christmas party for the children of the firefighters on the island....  Life for firefighters here is not like at home, and these courageous men an women risk everything with sub-standard, old equipment for less pay in a week than Canadian firefighters earn in an hour....  It was a great afternoon...


Margaret sliding down the pole....

Kelly's turn...

Santa is EVERYWHERE!
 Gifts were bought for every child of every firefighter...

Happy Kids...
 A few days ago, my sister Kim arrived for Christmas...  She brought her husband, Richard and his two adult children and their partners....

Who knew Kelly liked beer?


 The weather has been fabulous, and the other day we inflated our two kayaks and had some fun,,

Feliz Navidad!
