2013? You got to be kidding!

How did that happen?  That means we have been docked in Hawaii over a year - yikes!
Celebrating with the Family!

But, it has been a great place to live and work and we have made the most of it.

We have made some life-long friends with our dock buddies, done lots of touristy stuff, and made (and spent) some money.

Plus, had fun showing family and friends our favorite places on Oahu.

We are going to miss this place...

Lots of laughs
We had wonderful ending to 2012 - a visit with the family in Texas.  Happy to report that all are doing just fine.

A wild and crazy time with lots of food, drink, laughter and we made so many new memories (and lots of photos). 
Celebrating Conner's B'Day

Just went way too fast!

Now, we are back on Moondance and making plans for the South Pacific - yeah!
Anessa and Ryan - big grins

Yup, we got lots to do (and lots to buy) if we want to set sail in May.

So, it is time to hunker down and get busy (not our strong suit)!

But, we always seem to make it work.
Happy 2013

Our current sailing plans include stops at:

Fanning Island
Christmas Island (maybe)
The Cook's
The Samoa's

And spend 2 years (at least) exploring all of those beautiful islands in Fiji.
Snow - yikes!

But, as they say, cruising plans are written in sand at low tide - always changing.  That's part of the fun.

 So if you are thinking you need some beach time, come and join us somewhere along the way. 

We would love to have you as crew on Moondance!

Yeah!!! 2013!!!! I don't know how that happened either. Hey are you guys going to be able to stay in the South pacific for the whole 2 years? Heck,
I might just have to come over there!!! I just replaced my goose neck too. The weld had cracked. Leave it to my wonderful late husband to have one in the bilge with screws and all ready to put on!! He is still taking care of me! miss you two! C
