After working hard on the boat for ten days straight, we were looking forward to getting out of the boat yard, off the boat, and doing something fun - a little exercise to get the blood flowing would be good too.  Mark on S/V Sea Life organized 14 cruisers to go on a "Hike from Hell.  Five hours of great, mud-sliding, stinging nettle-avoiding, spectacular viewing was just what we were looking for.

We met so many people from all over the world, including South Africa, Bermuda, Germany, Israel, and Australia.  In fact, we were the only cruisers from the U.S.  This sailing life really offers perspective in how we may all seem different but in the end, we are all very similar.
We walked through the streets to get to the trail.  Notice we are all very good single-filers.
We climbed up...
We climbed down...
And back up again...

Until we were sure the planes could see us (this really is a beacon for planes - see next airport photo to see how steep the climb out is from the runway)

We left the dock this morning and are now currently anchored right at the end of the runway above Baxter's right shoulder.
