Happy New Year from "Beach House" – Rio Dulce, Guatemala…..

December 31, 2015

December 31st, 2015 (-6 on UTC)

Dear Friends and Family!
Well, it’s been a long time since we last checked in with you and this one will be brief.
We have had the boat in Guatemala since June and have done EXTENSIVE work aboard “Beach House”.

We’ve also been to Skye and Sean’s Wedding in Southern California, NYC, Columbia, Panama, Israel and touring around Guatemala with friends and of course
the lovely Sra. Carmina Robles here in Guatemala. As well, Nikki spent a considerable amount of time in the land of “OZ” visiting her family and
new grandchild “Billie”. Lot’s to catch up on.

We’ll depart RAM Marina this afternoon and go “somewhere up the crazy river” to Texan Bay. This is an ex-pat
community where we’ll spend New Year’s Eve with Laurie and Peter and their Switch 51 – “Zia” at their dock on the bay.

We’ll soon depart for either the Bay Islands of Honduras (Utila/Roatan/Guanaja) or may just head straight for Isla Providencia
which is owned by Columbia (but nowhere near Columbia), about 90 miles off the East Coast of Nicaragua.

We’ll then head to the Panamanian Islands of San Blas and on to the Panama Canal en route to our final destination for the year – Australia!
A very long sailing season indeed!.

Love to hear from you all. We can most easily be reached by writing us at our emails.
Speak soon!
Scott and Nikki (Rio Dulce, Guatemala)
