Merry Christmas from the crew of Let it Be!

Jack and the kids had a fun day finishing the dinghy/sleigh decorations yesterday as I did shopping in the vegetable market for upcoming Christmas eats. As the sun went down in the evening we dressed up, filled a bag with candy canes, plugged the lights into our main starting battery, which was offloaded to the dinghy, and cast off. We tootled around the large anchorage for a couple hours singing our much practiced Christmas carols. I think “Feliz Navidad” was a universal favorite. I played guitar, Jack was on bongo when he wasn’t motoring to keep us from running into the boat we were currently singing to, Marietta was our lead singer and candy-cane-hander-outer and Jack Jack took to his own invented instrument, banging a coke bottle with a spatula, like no tomorrow. It was fun to bring cheer and smiles to our neighbors and I love teaching our little guys to use their imagination and create their own fun. Merry Christmas to all from the crew of “Let it Be!”

This is what people saw coming towards their boat yesterday evening. Jack did a great decorating job! And as a side note, my engineer husband made the arches so strong they could probably withstand 40mph winds and the waves that go with those winds.

    As a grandma now I have to ask “Where’s mommy and daddy’s life jacket?”
    Love you all. Be safe!
