OUR BOAT!




Our boat is on its way! It is being trucked from Indiana to San Diego and then will be put on a barge for an ocean crossing to our island! It should be here by the 29th or so........
The boat is a Zodiac Pro Open 650 RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) - which is a civilian derivative of a Navy Seal ocean boat. It is 4 years old and came with everything imaginable - including GPS, life jackets, fish finders, rod holders, etc etc.
...now keep in mind I am a TERRIBLE sailor.
I guess i will learn.... Dramamine will be my best friend.... I will not FEAR deep water.

...and a new pair of earrings: Tears of Joy Earrings...using one of Amber Dawn's rusty bezels, pewter eye, resin, copper and a carnelian tear. Check out the full description in my Etsy shop!

Connie,
How interesting! My hubby and I are looking for a used aluminum row boat to use for some fishing in a bay near our little grass shack! Your boat looks awesome! I just recently started fishing again and am loving it! Hope you have loads of fun on your new boat!!! Plus, your earrings are fab-U-lous!!!!

Aloha from Kauai (the other side of the island,
