Happy New Year!
Fireworks painted the night sky in sweet Bequia, celebrating a new year for sailors gathered from all parts of the world.
We had a fun celebration on our friend’s catamaran named Dakota Dream (Fred and Sandy, from North Dakota of course).
Sandy from Dakota Dream, flew in from North Dakota just in time to attend her own party, with twenty sailors welcoming her back to her watery home. Going from -10F in the north country to +85 tropical degrees is always a shock this time of year!
This morning, things are moving even slower than normal in the anchorage, with the New Year festivities continuing until sunrise on both land and sea. Sleep will come, once the pulsating music dies down.
Happy New Year 2023 to all from Aspen and her crew!
Sail on, sail on Aspen…
