A decision to continue my voyage...

Caribbean Sea---I've made a decision. I will be coming home end of March making it exactly one year at sea. The OceansWatch Volunteer project ends in the Dominican Republic on March 1 and I thought I'd return then,  but I am accepting this captain's offer to continue on this boat as it goes off the Volunteer program and back on "delivery." So I will be joining them to crew through the Panama Canal and to the Galapagos where I will leave the boat, explore the Galapagos and Ecuador and then fly home. This is some very rough sailing so it's not all fun but the destinations are life goals to see.


The captain and crew to Panama
 We are leaving today for a 3 day sail directly to the Dominican Republic, skipping the British and American Virgin Islands as once planned.

I have mixed feelings about coming home as I am anxious to be "home" and see my dog Turbo, yet this has been such an different lifestyle and I'll need some adjusting I'm sure...not to mention figuring out my next career!
