In the bay we revisited Kirk on SV Freedom Kirkland, whom we had met on our way down so many years before. On the morning net he invited fellow cruisers to attend his up and coming wedding the following afternoon! It was a halcyon day on the beach when he and his lovely bride Charlene tied the knot, (no pun intended) which we followed with a sumptuous dinner at Coconuts.

Back on Chantey V, with deadlines to meet, we reluctantly pushed off for Las Hadas in hopes of reuniting with other sailor friends from yesteryear and sharing the joys, trials and tribulations of our travels.

|Arrival at Barra de Navidad Lagoon|
The following we day set sail for Barra de Navidad, dreaming of a morning visit from the French Baker with fresh croissants from his jaunty panga.

In its' brief course lie all the realities and truths of your existence,
The bliss of growth, the glory of action, the splendour of achievement,
are but experiences of a time,
For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow a vision of hope,
But today well-lived makes yesterday a dream of happiness,
and every tomorrow a vision of hope,
Look well therefore to this day!
