Catching Up

Even in the good ol' USA, time goes too fast. We have been in Washington over two weeks all ready and it feels like we just got here.
Happy Thanksgiving from Washington!
We arrived at midnight in Tri-Cities all tan and wearing our flip flops and freezing - it was only 16 degrees outside and we got some strange looks.

So, we have been busy shopping for bizarre things, like shoes, socks, jeans, and a car - oh my!
Frosty and freezing

Plus, hanging out with family and friends and enjoying all of the comforts and visiting all of our favorite bars - like Sam's Saloon.

I see Dead Animals...

It is so strange to have everything you want - just a trip to town away.

Of course, things are a lot more expensive than Fiji, so we have to have some control.

We aren't very good at that, but we are trying!

Moondance prepped for the season
Our plan is to be in Washington ~10 more days and then on to Oregon, Nevada, California, Mexico, Arizona, New Mexico, and end our journey in Texas.

We got a big list of people to visit and it seems to grow daily.  Looking forward to seeing everyone.  

Our gang at Vuda Point Marina - happy hour!
But, we are definitely missing Moondance and our boat buddies in Fiji. 

Rumor is that Masi, our Fijian caretaker, is taking excellent care of our boat.  That is very good news.

Hard to believe how cold we are now compared to how hot and humid it was in Fiji.  I am still trying to get rid of my heat rash - hah!

Cain always with a big smile

Miss everyone and hope you are enjoying the holiday season!

PS:  Below are some miscellaneous pictures of Fiji.

Well add us to that list of people to visit! If you get to Seattle (or even SeaTac) and have some time to spare, let us know! Otherwise, safe travels. .. we got back to Kirkland last night where it was 19, having left San Antonio three hours before where it was 27!
