When we bought Rhapsody she came with a spinnaker. What is a spinnaker? It is the big colorful sail you see in pictures of sailboats. They are wonderful to look at, unfortunately they require a lot of hardware and knowledge to get them flying properly. We had never put up our spinnaker, and we had many questions about the details of rigging it. We were very fortunate to run into Jamie Gifford from S/V Totem. Ok, when I say ran into it sounds rather random. In actuality we (I) had been stalking them, and knew exactly where they were, you see I have been following this family of 5 on their blog for about 6 years now tracking their circumnavigation.

Columbus day has taken on a very different feeling from when I was growing up. When I was in elementary school we were taught about Columbus "discovering " America, how he was trying to prove that the world was not flat and we happily made drawings of the Nina, the Pinta and the Santa Maria.

One of the things that has been very high on my list of things to do has been turtle watching. We almost took a tour in Grenada to watch the turtles laying eggs, but we backed out due to weather and health issues, so it remained on my list.
|This is a nighttime story, so I was unable to get pictures. Therefore I have included a picture that I did instead.|
