We are here hanging out in Placencia, Belize waiting for a weather window to go to Roatan in the Bay Islands of Honduras.  A cold front is coming in on Wednesday and after that we will start looking for a window.   This is not a bad place to wait.

Our external gps for our navigational software went bad as did our pactor modem for our SSB radio which allows us to send emails and receive weather reports.  Luckily our friends on s/v Vindand had an extra external gps so that problem is solved.  We won't be able to repair our modem until we get to Roatan.  We will still get weather reports verbally over the radio, we just can't communicate through email.

Adios Guatemala

Happy Holidays!  Another year is about to end and so is our stay in Guatemala.  We had hoped to sail down to Panama last year, but things do not always work out as planned, especially on a boat.  Ka'imi and crew are in good shape and looking forward to the cruising season.  We should cross the Rio Dulce Bar before New Years and head to Belize, Roatan, Providencia and then Panama.

We have met so many wonderful people her in Guatemala and it is always bitter sweet when you leave.  You are looking forward to new adventures, yet we leave many friends behind.  Today we took our last trip into Fronteras the town in Rio Dulce.  I was happy I might not have to walk through that crazy street again, yet it was always an adventure just to do the shopping.  We made our last trip for fuel and our last trip for ice, where the guys know us and all we have to do is hold up one finger or two to get how many bags of ice we need.  Our friends here are heading out also, and some heading in the same direction as us so we will see them again.

This year Mike got a quad copter or drone so we can't wait to have more videos of the places we visit.  This one is Christmas 2017, we spent it with Jerry and Susan on Vida Dulce.

Hoping all have a very good new year, and will check in when we can.

Caye Caulker, Belize

We are currently hanging out in Cay Caulker, Belize.  Our internet is quite expensive here so we really can't post any pictures.  We will update with pictures when we get better internet.

We decided that we would stay in Belize instead of heading to Roatan and then Panama this year.  We left the Rio late and we seemed to be rushing and waiting for a good weather window.  We will head to Roatan and Panama in November, then we will have more time to enjoy ourselves.

Right now we are just enjoying northern Belize and will start working our way south through the islands as weather permits.

Cheers Kim, Mike and Zoey

South Water Cay, Belize

We are currently hanging out in South Water Cay, located on the barrier reef that encircles Belize. It is beautiful here with sandy beaches, palm trees and beautiful reefs 50 - 100 yards away. The weather is great and the crew is doing wonderful. Still waiting for a weather window to get to Roatan, Honduras. We're off now to snorkel the reef, check out Carrie Bow Cay and then cold beers at Blue Marlin Lodge on South Water Cay.

Cheers Kim and Mike, Ka'imi

Placencia, Belize

Safe and somewhat sound in Belize, all is well. It is great to be back on the ocean and in blue water. Everything is working and the weather is great! Keep you posted, we are looking for our weather to Roatan.

Texan Bay

We decided to do a little shake down cruise to check boat systems and give our Zoey a chance to get used to the boat moving. We are 12 miles down river in Texan Bay. It is very quite here so we also get a chance to relax for a bit. We will go back up river to Tortugal in a couple days to finish up projects, take on fuel and provision the boat. Then head back down to Texan Bay and wait for weather and a tide.

Cheers Mike, Kim and Zoey
