In the Spring of 2005 Claudia and I started talking about diving the hundreds of islands in the South Pacific.

Our first thought was taking a dive vacation there every other year but over the next few years we'd only be able to walk on a half a dozen new beaches.

Then the idea struck us! Get a boat, sail down to Mexico, sail across the Pacific, then explore the islands both above and below the water.

So started our journey.

Where this adventure will end we know not, but we fully expect to enjoy each step along the way.

 

Sailing by Christopher Cross

It's not far down to paradise
At least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away
And find tranquility
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

It's not far to never never land
No reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy
Of innocence again
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

Sailing
Takes me away
To where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

Fantasy
It gets the best of me
When I'm sailing
All caught up in the reverie
Every word is a symphony
Won't you believe me

Sailing
Takes me away
To where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

It's not far back to sanity
At least it's not for me
And when the wind is right you can sail away
And find serenity
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me
