  SOUTH CAROLINA
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
After a crazy week of Carnival celebrations, we are settled into another Norte, and sit watching the waves crash on the dock.  Fortunately Blowin' Bubbles is safely tucked into the Caleta.

We almost didn't get to put the boat in the Caleta, as there seemed to be some politics that was all set to prevent it, until our friend Ron just opened the gate and we all drove in before the storm started.... Shelley and I just hope they will let us out when it is over.... lol.

Last week the Island saw the most amazing Carnival celebration!  Thousands of people were in attendance to what be the most fun parade we have ever witnessed...  





On Monday, Shelley went with the children of some of our Mexican friends and participated in a 5km run/walk to support a local women and children's shelter.  The big difference with this walk and other is the fact that tons of colorful powder is added....  








Clearly, it was an awesome day and for a good cause.....

A few days ago, Shelley and I took some time and dove our mooring to check the rope and chain.  we also carefully inspected the bottom of the boat.  The propeller is in great shape, but clearly we need to paint the bottom...  Especially the keel...








In the last week we also saw the invasion of the "Groundhogs"  They are friends from Canada who run a diveshop who have brought almost 50 divers from the cold north... Unfortunately, with this Norte, all they can do today is drink....  hmmm...  that doesn't sound so bad...


Happy Valentines Day!

Lastly, Margaret and Shelley and the group of ladies who danced their way into second place at the annual "Ladies Night" here on the island, took the winning ticket on a "Sunset Cruise"....  They look like they had fun....


More soon.

Cheers!
