Vlad's daughter Natasha came to see us, arriving 45 minutes after Sally, Apache and the two dogs left. Natasha got to experience the mad scramble our life has been lately as we try to get ready to leave in something like three weeks, but thankfully she seemed totally relaxed with the madness and the scramble. She also got to experience what life looks like after you buy a ton of stuff from West Marine - basically filled with cardboard, navigation tools and the touch of shame that comes with spending that much money.
|Vlad and Natasha are expert dinghy unpackers.|
And she made some rocking waffles with Vlad's prized waffle iron. Natasha is going to take good care of the waffle maker for us while we're gone, and she's going to come visit us on some tropical island. We just haven't quite figured out which one yet. Thanks so much for coming to see us, Natasha!
