The Christmas Tree is UP

Ahh, it is Dec 10th, Gary's BirhDay. We have always put the tree up today. Of course, a few (maybe many) years ago we would get a tree permit and take the jeep up into the mountians of Northern New Mexico to cut a fresh pine. There was usually snow and cold but a fun day out.

No snow here. It was 33C (92F) here inside the boat while Trinda was trimming the small tree.

The little tree inside, about 18" with the star.

We created our own 'artificial' tree for the fore deck. A few wire coat hangers, some heavy duty garland, light duty tinsel and some LED lights. The only lights for sale here are 220 volts, so it requires a step-up transformer. At least the LEDs don't need many amps.

That is a small view of the bay here in Puerto Princesa in the background.

Trinda said it looks like something drug up from Neptune's locker.

We've been here for a couple of months now, for no particular reason, just chill-in'. Doing a (very) few boat projects, a few computer projects and lots of crochet and movie watching.

But the old saying about dark and distance helps a lot!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
