Happy Birthday America!

For the second year now we have taken Ellen Louise over to the La Playa anchorage for the 4th of July. It is a very calm sheltered anchorage and perfect for a long weekend. It seems that everyone had the same idea though and it was a popular place this past weekend. We rafted up with 20 other boats and couldn't have fit anymore even if we wanted to because it was so crowded.

Weekends like this are rare. Usually our boat life is somewhat ordinary (I guess that is a relative statement), but when a weekend like this comes along it makes me realize how lucky I am to be where I am, when I am. Most of our friends have sailboats and almost all of them live aboard. Sometimes we take for granted the fact that almost everyone I know has access to a boat. None of us are rich and have somehow found this little loop-hole to societal norms. It truly is a blessed life we live.
