Sad, Sad Times

Good friends back home in Abbotsford (and we) have suffered the devastating loss of a beautiful, courageous young woman: a wife, mother, daughter, sister, dear friend, colleague and a hero to many. It has been difficult to engage in our normally lighthearted, goofy blog with all the sorrow back home. She was a superstar in all of her endeavours.  We are broken-hearted and thinking about our dear friends every day.

Cancer is an awful thing. Hopefully, our continued support of research will put an end to this horrible, indiscriminate disease.

Man, there is a lot of good stuff to get into!
Our daughter, Jen and grandson Jack flew here to George Town January 8th.  We are so grateful for their loving distraction during this sad time.

Our own coconuts!

This boat is so big it has it's own bathtub.

Chicks love my beach wear!

Mom teaching me to surf!

I'm pretty good at steering but I can't start the darn thing, yet.


Man, I wish they wouldn't put the good stuff up so high.


  1. OH HOW that is one cute baby who also knows how wonderful and how simple life can be on an Island Packet Yacht.....Sorry about the sad news, that hits home with me, as R has been through the full treatment and we want the beast to stay away now! That's why we are taking early retirement and getting on to the cruising life ASAP.
    Thanks for keeping the blog running at these challenging times.

  2. I'm glad that Jen and Jack were there to help keep your spirits up. It sure looks like he had lots of fun!

  3. So very sorry to hear. Glad Jen and babe were there. great pics.
