Santa rode a Boeing 777 this year!!
After wishing on every star and being a good little sailor, I got the present I always wanted…my Dad arrived Christmas morning!!!! After unloading his enormous sack of presents, we immediately raised the sails and headed off to explore the island! YAY!!!!!
(D)Admiral Russ steers us through the treacherous reef pass.
DOUBLE RAINBOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! ok just a single but it felt like a double with Dad there…safe and sound at our first anchorage.
Christmas dinner with Dad!! A dream come true!!!
Look out below!!!!!!!!!!
Dad getting hydrated, island style!

I am so stoked for you being able to spend this holiday with your father on Swell and to show him around your stomping grounds and lagoons there! The terrific smile you have in every picture truely expresses your joy. Your father looks so proud of you too. It is heartwarming to see this wonderful relationship you have sharing a mutual enthusiasm for the sport and adventure of sailing. Be encouraged and all the best Lizzy!

The only thing I did not see on the Xmas dinner table was your Pacifico!
You looked great steering and Liz in command. (as it should be). Hope to see you in SD soon.
