This was our first experience anchoring aboard Ma'alahi. We took it slow, and successfully set anchor. We try to make each new experience we have aboard uneventful and successful. Shortly after turning off the engine, one of our anchored neighbors drifted by us at a good 2-3 knots. T used our air-horn to try to get the other boat's attention, unsuccessfully, and then proceeded to dinghy over and knock on their hull. They had no idea that they had moved a good 200 yards from their original spot. Whew! That experience made us a little paranoid.

I can't help but wonder, in a positive way, about all of the things the kids are learning through these nature focused experiences. T and I took turns walking up and down the spit with K. K continues to talk-up a storm and enjoy every beach we go to. Whenever we are out on the boat she says that we are "goin-to-the-beach, goin-to-the-beach mommy (or daddy)" - she gets so excited.
