After returning from the Tucson gem shows we were in Bali for two weeks in our new villa and then up to our sailboat, Cuchara, on the island of Langkawi, Malaysia.

Langkawi is an island on the border with Thailand and only 5 hours sail to Koh Lipe island which is in a group of islands with some of the clearest snorkeling water in Thailand. All the islands here are less than an hour's sail away. So we tried all the anchorages and developed our favorites. The North East Monsoon dominates this time of year, so the winds were mostly non-existent. Next year during this monsoon we hope to sail farther up towards the Burmese border. Robbin is all ready to check out the islands of Burma. But of course, she is always raring to go to the next island. I suppose that's how we ended up across the Pacific in the first place.

So it was a month of a little boat maintenance, a lot of snorkeling and exploring and every few days we sailed over to the inhabited island of Koh Lipe with its restaurants, spas and groceries.

We saw some corals and fish we hadn't seen in all our travels before. I guess being in the Indian Ocean for the first time is why.
 Above is Cuchara, our home since 1992 on our mooring in the UNESCO GeoPark mangroves on Langkawi.
 Here we are on a mooring off the beach near Koh Lipe.
 We would leave our dinghy on the beach here while we re-provisioned in Koh Lipe.
 Every evening the squid fishermen would put on their sodium vapor lamps for a night of fishing.
 A common sight in the Thai islands. Tourists being driven in a long tail boat.
 Another joke.
Here's the squid fishermen at night. And below is sun setting behind the distant island.

Flying into Losangeleese



Well, it's almost time for us to leave paradise to exhibit our designs at the California Gift Show at the LA convention center, January 18th to 23rd. Then we take the beautiful drive through the desert, which reminds us of the open sea, to Tucson for the Pueblo Gem Show, January 28th to February 9th.

We arrive in the States on the 11th and plan to share our new crop of one-of-a-kinds with a few of our special galleries. If you would like to get a first pick, before we sell out, just contact us.

The photos are ideas we are working on for these two foot by six foot tall photos for the back of the booths.
