As promised, an update from san pedro.
I have been here a couple of weeks and what a couple of weeks they have been. Still looking for housing, but staying at a great place. Making friends and putting myself to use helping Saga and whatever else I can do!

For a girl from seattle, the hurricane was a scary scary thing. I evacuated with the trusty captain tom on the (beautiful) emerald isle down to Big Creek. In hind sight, that wasn't the best spot. But we are all fine. 6 of us and a dog in a concrete hotel room proved very interesting. The boat was fine ( a little dirty..but to be imagined). I saw things i have never seen before, terrible destruction, loss of life and as you know..the sinking of boats that were literally right across from ours. But everyone has really come together. I will never forget the images I saw..but I am hoping to gain some perspective from them.

People in town have organized a fundraiser for the victims on Saturday at Fidos and I am helping put up flyers. THis will provide food to the people who need it most.

Anyway... I am doing well. If you are in town, ask for me around town or at Seven Seas.

It is so good to hear from you. In hindsight, AC would have been the place to stay for Iris, but you know what they say about hindsight. It sounds like you are being very productive and helpful in San Pedro. Good for you! I am probably coming down around the first weekend in December, and would love to visit with you then.

Hi Jennifer,

We were wondering how you were doing and getting along. It's good to hear the excellent news about AC but very sorry to about down South.

Despite everything over the last few weeks, we are so pleased that you are happy with your move. You should know how much we admire your spirit and sense of adventure.

We envy you and respect your guts! You are our hero!!! Who would have thought that a gal from the Northwest US would by her self move to Central America!

Terry & Ben

"WHEW!" Glad to hear you are okay! Now...if you could just stay away from Dockside on ladies night, we'd know that you're REALLY safe!
