  1. It looks like you had a fun Christmas on Rode Trip with your guests. Have a safe and happy New Year, we hope to see you if you ever get back this way.

  2. That is a better idea than a sleigh for Santa to deliver presents to cruisers. He will love you for thinking of it and then making it for him. (I presume it was made for Santa!)

  3. LOVE those ginger-boats! i’m a big fan of that fruit roll up sail! Hope you had a merry christmas!
