Merry Christmas and a very exciting New Year From Jammin

To all our land friends, cruising friends, and family we hope you had an incredible Merry Christmas and will have a great New Year. Many of you enjoyed a deep white Christmas in Oregon we understand. We are currently back anchored in Tenacatita after spending two nights in Bara de Navidad. Bara was fun to visit for the holiday season, but it is nice to be back here with friends. Our Christmas started around 5:15 am when I got up to make cinnamon rolls for the 6 boats anchored in the bay. I was delivering fresh rolls by 9:00 and was ready to crash till our potluck turkey dinner on Coastal Passage at 4:00. Our potluck included 11 people on 5 boats, each boat bringing an additional dinner side dish to compliment the turkey. It was fantastic!!!! After dinner we had dessert and a movie on Beach Access. Once dark came everyone noticed I had put up 120 ft of LED Christmas Lights, They really looked festive and I was glad I took the time. Our current plan is to stay here till New Years and then start heading south. We still plan to go through the Panama Canal sometime in May.

Thanks to our Christmas cruising friends/family for making it such a fantastic celebration. Synchrony, Coastal Passage, Beach Access, Batu

Happy New Year, Dave and Helen! I just found out that my niece is now dating a guy who went to school with one of your kids, John Lyon. Hum a few bars of "It's a Small World" with me. I'm in Portland, where most of the snow has now melted. John is in Amsterdam, where the canal is trying to freeze. Wish we were with you in lovely Tenacatita.
