Life. Is. Good.

Wow sorry guys it's been a while since we updated the blog! Well since the boat is under major construction we have moved to this wonderful place called The Rume Store and Picnic. This little gem is a small store and great restaurant that has 3 rooms above it with air con and great showers....what more can u ask for!?!? We are so happy there:) 
Our view from the balcony atop the restaurant....For $22 per night we get a great room and free breakfast every morning which consists of 2 eggs on toast w butter n jam and some bacon on the side with is great!! 

So we go to the boat once a day and hang out to make sure progress is being made. We had our anchor chain galvanized and painted a mark for every 10 meters and it's beautiful!!!! All the wood has been replaced and now they just need to sand and varnish....which could take years! Haha kidding....but it's coming along and looks fantastic so far. 
Believe it or not these photos are progress lol!...
We also had our new Bimini finished and put back on finally!!(only took 3 months)...
Poor girl looks sad n lonely I can't wait to get back on board and show her some TLC! But there is our new top we are no longer topless;) haha

We spent my birthday weekend in a little lovely place called Boracay...
My crazy scotch Rachel love her to bits!!!
My new South African friend had a braai for me on my bday! It was awesome! 
This is the cutest bat I have ever seen!
So I bought myself a couple bday awesome dive computer
This thing is awesome! Aaaaand I bought a guitar from a friend of ours...yes people I'm learning how to play guitar in all my endless spare time that I have right now! far I have no feeling in my first 3 fingers on my left hand...and I know most chords and can play ....(drumroll please)....the happy birthday song! Hahahahha .... A very slow happy birthday but still practicing every day for a couple hours each day. I'll get there I got nothing but time ;) 

Ok so enough about the birthday but also thanks to everyone for the great bday wishes;) I feel special to have so many who care:)

We are actually sitting at an Italian restaurant at this very moment. We are on an island called Romblon in the Philippines. It's is an island made of marble! It's crazy all the statues they have here that people wanted to buy but never came back might just be that they have no way to transport these monster carvings but wow it's so cheap to get marble here. Let's just put it this way.....a mooring is usually made of concrete and stuff...well it's cheaper to get a block of pure marble for a mooring that it is to get concrete here.... That's a fancy

The boat we are sailing in is an old classic gorgeous beautiful 80 something year old boat. She's been so over the world and she sails like a dream! I've never been so comfortable on a monohull and I suppose the captain kinda knows what he's doing as well :)
Please don't jump I'm a little rusty on my man overboards!
Not the best photo of the interior but it's all I got for now...there is the bunk where Ty is and one on the other side plus a v-berth use front ....

Still...sunrise is my favorite watch...:) 
This is Bill. We were all invited to the christening of the new yacht club/bar in Romblon. He had the very first San Miguel Pilsen at the new yacht club. Out. Captain had the second and Ty had the third. I had the first in 2 categories thank u very much! First female beer and first San Miguel Light:))) we just made history folks ;) haha I hope to see those photos in 5-6 years when we make our way back around on our own boat! We had such a great time sailing with Gary and we hope there will be more wind In the next few days so we may continue on with him on his journey to Subic (which is close to Manila) ....c'mon wind!!!!
