We're making a run for the border! Ciao Baby is raring for adventure. The kids and I are packed up, dear Ned headed to the airport, and the dogs have gone to a friend's house. It is dark, quiet, and strange for a brief moment.
Thanks to so many friends for help getting ready. We have a Magic Jack for a phone line thanks to Charlie and Marti, we have a plan and
good advice thanks to Jonna, and a Find Me Spot thanks to Virginia. We're hoping to see Mimi and Jonna in just a few weeks in Merida.
Yesterday, Harriet Halkyard, who wrote "99 Days to Panama" blessed us with a visit- she's a fellow Houstonian and a wonderful adventurer.
We've had a wonderful time catching up with friends, visiting like social butterflies, enjoying Ned and the dogs, and playing.
Not sure if we're cross the border tomorrow, more likely Tuesday, but hopefully we'll blow across to Cuidad Victoria the first night in Mexico and then down along the Emerald Coast to the Yucatan, Belize by Dec. 1.
We'll keep you posted. I'll try to update our blog as we find internet. Ready or not, here we come!
Hugs to you all!
Tessa, headed south from Texas! Whoo-hhhooooo!
