A Perfect Day in Shangrila

Today was the perfect day! Though the wind was still whipping up the ocean when we woke this morning, it was beautifully sunny, if a bit cool.

We had a leisurely start with breakfast in the cockpit, after which each of us tackled various boat and work projects until lunchtime. Then we left the billionaire’s paradise, and snaked our way down-wind following the deep (enough) channels to the nicest anchorage we’ve been in so far. It is totally protected from all sides, right next to a gorgeous beach, and the best snorkeling grounds we’ve encountered. I snorkeled right off the boat (see pic that Jeff took below), and then enjoyed the surroundings while I spent the afternoon painting. I’m trying a new approach – Chinese brushpainting using watercolour materials. Pics of the results below, as well.

Meanwhile Jeff has been puttering away – and just exclaimed, “that’s three projects done – do I have any left?”. This must mean he’s over his bout of exhaustion and back to normal – yeah!

We’re heading back to George Town starting tomorrow – finally feeling really settled in to this place. Ah well – there’s our return in March to look forward to!

BTW - the first pic is the pizza we made from scratch with gluten-free dough for our dinner last night.
