Living with Siblings 7/31

I just have to say, living out here is not the greatest lifestyle... Living as the role-model and oldest of the 4 of us in a crammed and small boat, takes extra extra extra effort. Anyone who has ever had 2 twin sisters and a little brother know what I mean. Working with and working around these people is like working around air, THEY ARE EVERYWHERE.

When the time comes, I get to escape to my place on the boat. The place I am best known for. The helm is my place on our boat. I will never know why, but when I am at the helm I am never bothered by anyone.

But then there is school... I am STILL doing school. I started in April because I was doing so much on the boat. I have a bit of catching up to do...

Living out here is NOT the greatest lifestyle. Living out here IS the greatest lifestyle. Everyday is different, and everyday brings new surprises.

Where have you been?

Far far away in a place with no trash........

singing all day without internet..............

A place we wont name................

in case the authorities complain...............

but let it suffice....it is special, and WAY nice, for a very low price.

Nikolas exploring shells and giant sea turtle carcases on the Cays showing out of the blue water  in the middle of no where!

Depth matters and we can count on Mikai to take the lead.

"You've got to be kidding"  we said very often in these crystal waters.

Annika in her element all day at the turtle sanctuary.

Even tech Kai was delighted to touch the smooth rubbery shells.

We were always left with a gorgeous sunset and lightning shows as Mikai played his guitar.  Then we would count the stars.

Our new home base in Isla Mujeras Mexico.  We love it here.

Valeria visits for lunch.

Annika and the other kids could practice their Spanish with confidence with such great little kids to play with and help take care of.
