Twas The Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the boat not a creature was bleating, not even a goat...

 (Best Christmas tree in the world)

Ahhh Christmas, the time of year when everyone eats 14 times their body weight in deliciously delectable food... When it's perfectly acceptable and even encouraged to hug and lick unsuspecting strangers.... The time of year when you gather to bustow random ridiculous gifts on family and's a great time if year... And what better place to be than in the Caribbean??

On Christmas Eve, while the rest of the world was waiting for Santa, we got whole lot more than we bargained for!! 

First it started to drizzle and then it began to pour and then people stared chasing their beds down the road as they floated out of their houses... 

Theres no safer place to be than on a boat (assuming its a good boat) when the floods come... By midnight our inflatable dingy was a swimming pool and there was still no sign of relief!

While we sat safe and dry celebrating a Polish Christmas, islanders fraught for their lives and by morning over 30 people were dead...

This year I was showered with gifts and an awesome time with my adopted family... I never got the drinking buddy I asked for for Christmas (and I'm still waiting for Santa to deliver on the wish list in a bottle I floated him last year) but man am I lucky in life!!!

It doesn't matter if you didn't get anything for Christmas this year, you got life, make the most of it!!!

Beary Christmas everyone
