On my way back to the boat

A lot has happened since my last post. We arrived in Tahiti (Papaetee to be exact).  I had been asked to leave Maggie so in checking my options I discovered it was cheaper to purchase a return ticket than a one way ticket. I spoke to all the boats who were continuing with the BPO to determine if any of them might need crew in the future. No one saw such a requirement. I was asked to sail one of the boats back to Seattle area via Hawaii. As I don't have captain's papers I asked them to insure the insurance on the boat would be valid if I was to deliver it back to Seattle. I was told by one of the boats that they were aware of someone who may be looking for crew & they would introduce me in the morning. We had an early BPO meeting to finalize the route the BPO was to take. Following that meeting it was determined that one of the owners of No Regrets would not be returning in Bora Bora as expected. I was asked to join No Regrets in Bora Bora. 
I'm on my way to Bora Bora now. 
In the meantime I flew back to Calgary where I met Barb and visited with my kids & grandkids. After a few days in Calgary we travelled through the mountains on a beautiful clear day with these beautiful sites

I had lots of work to do while at home & then we were headed back to Calgary for more visiting with kids and grandkids. My mother arrived in Calgary on Tuesday and we had a wonderful visit.
