Our friends in Victoria rock. The boat was so loaded down with people and the liquid presents they brought for us that our stern was 6" in the water. In fact, we are still floating very, very low with 4 people, food for 4 and enough liquor from friends to (nearly) sink us. We've at least adjusted our trim so we are somewhat equally laden instead of stern and port down. We would also like to thank those from afar that sent us notes or called and my parents for giving us a box of wrapped gifts to open for various occasions as we voyage. Well done, Mom.
I tried to limit myself to a handful of the photos that captured the mood.
