Ihlabela haul out

There are different ways to haul a boat.  Here in Ihlabela, Brazil a converted tractor drives out in the water and tow the boat up on the beach.

No, we have not been sailing to Brazil! Bella Luna is till on the hard on Malta.  Instead we took a  KLM flight to Sao Paulo and visited my daughter Malin and her boyfriend Pablo.

When we get home to Sweden it is not so many weeks until Bella goes in the water at Manoel Island Yacht Yard on Malta.

    How funny looking. Hope Vickie went to the Amazon too! Looks like fun to me. Geez, i thought you would be at the olympics. Although Russia is so close to Sweden, i am sure the Olympics are prtty far from you.
    We are having our motorcycle made into a trike. Little safer for our age!
    Will aend you a Valentine’s surprise my daughter-in-law had. She works for a broker.
    love, Helen

      Next stop is the Amazonas. We are watching the Olympics on TV here. It was a nice feeling waking up to another Swedish Gold 4×10 km cross country relay 🙂
