Wow what a whirlwind of a week!
As we arrive in Barcelona to explore the city, I can’t help but reflect on how much we’ve done and how fast it’s flown by. A cross country 3 day drive through Toulouse and on to Basque Country including San Sebastion, a day trip to Andora in the Pyrenes, our first sail on El Gato to Coullierre, yesterday a long bike ride into Perpignan and back from Canet, and today at the Dali Museum on our way south. Kids are itching to walk the city streets so for sure my feet will be aching by midnight! Chelsea and Bobby depart tomorrow AM and young Eric leaves the 7th.
Tomorrow eve we are going to Mitch Booths (Olympian Cat racer) for dinner at his house on our way north. Loving FB for connecting friends in other countries! It also helped us find our awesome surveyor Kim who will be rejoining us end of the week while he surveys another yacht at the Catana Yard.
We love our new temporary home and it really feels like a home to me and Eric. We even say things like “Let’s go home”. And we know we mean El Gato. 🙂 Having been here less than a month we are feeling good about where we are and how things are progressing. Lots to do still, but nothing to keep us from crossing an ocean!
Next week will be all about learning how to use the navigation and weather software while Eric keeps learning the hardware like water makers and gen sets and such. It’s been a sweet break and distraction and we are grateful the kids push us out of the dock and help us explore the world through their eyes too.
