Tenerife

Ok, just quick note for now. I made it to safely to the Canary Islands and got my first glimpse of the Atlantic Ocean that I´ll be living on for the next three months. My first reaction -- let me at it!

I´m taking a ferry over to La Gomera in a hour to meet up with my boat, and I hear that it made it there safe and sound and is in the marina where it should be. I´ll post some pictures, etc...as soon as I can. My sister Joy is here also, and the rest of the team will be getting in over the weekend.

Thanks to everyone for the notes of encouragement on the blog, facebook, and e-mail!

More soon,

Paul
