Changes in (L)Atitude

Sometimes I wonder how much effect my formative years have had on me.  Our generations  parents hated the music we  listened to. Did the music represent us or did it effect us? The song 59th Street Bridge by Simon and Garfunkel comes to mind:


Slow down, you move too fast, you’ve got to make the morning last
Just kickin’ down the cobble-stones, lookin’ for fun and feelin’ groovy…

While offshore W/ and I were discussing our cruise. We were making tracks and yet the tracks were not what we had expected.  I figure  in the last year I’ve spent almost one month completing paper work for entering and leaving the various countries we’ve been to. We had planned on entering the Panama Canal this April and hitting the Pacific. At that time we would be late for the Pacific transit so we had considered the Las Perlas for a bit then moving down to Ecuador for the Hurricane Season.

But that too felt like we were rushing again. So we talked about another alternative. Staying in this area for a year and then early next year, heading through the Canal and into the Pacific. We can still hang in the Perlas Islands and still head to Ecuador if we want or we can get on the big Pacific Conveyor belt and start our trek across. Either way; we’ve decided to hang in this area till next late next winter ’12, enjoy Colombia, Panama including the San Blas Islands. Dive, eat fish and Lobster till we get sick of them, spend time in some of the Cities, learn to speak some Spanish, and basically…Slow down…. look  for fun  – life is gro0vy.

Go Slow
Sail Far
Stay Long
