Happy birthday!!! Wish we could be with you to celebrate and swing dance with you! Guess we'll have to settle for another kind of swinging;-)

The beautiful wood the swings are made out of is Cocobolo, the local name for the Dalbergia retusa tree. It is gorgeous with a whiter/yellow sapwood and a warm red/orange heartwood. You often see pieces that include both so that the contrast is quite striking.

If you were here, we could take you kiting in warm water! Here's Jodi with the post kite glow after a great session in Salinas Bay.

We had to anchor Gratitouille with only 6 feet under the keel to get remotely close enough for Darren to want to row us into shore. Fortunately, he loves both rowing and seeing Jodi's post-kite glow!

We could get dressed up and go out on the town for your birthdays...

Or go anchor in a secluded bay...

to explore caves...

and watch the turtles play...

But don't lean against these trees!

The name of this panga pretty much sums it up - 

We miss you much and hope you both have a fabulous birthday!!!

Lots of love and hugs,
Jodi and Darren
