Happy Birthday Tristan










Wow It's that time of year again! Tristan is turning Eight and he has asked if we could go swim with the Sea Lions today.  "Why Not." We do live on a boat and we are about an hours sail to Isla Islotes in the Sea of Cortez.  We have visited this sight numerous times and usually find we have it to ourselves. Well minus the Sea Lions.. So another year under his belt and what a year it has been.  Tristan's seventh year has been a dream.  He has logged more than 3,500 ocean miles, swam with the likes of sea lions, dolphins and manta rays.  He has explored countless uninhabited beaches and gathered buckets of treasures and junk. We have taken train rides to the mountains Baranca De Cobre.  He crewed in an international regatta on Meshach with friends from Kauai, and they placed first.  Fishing off the docks and catching 28 puffer fish ..we did throw them back.  It has been a great year.  I hope this adventure has lit a spark that will keep burning in him the desire to learn, travel, seek out and give back.  My baby is growing up and we are blessed to have this time to watch it happen right before our eyes.  Happy Birthday Tristan!  You are loved.
