|Habibi's computer table.|
It's Habibi day here on Cara Mia. Rahel and Marco are the nicest people we've never met. Yes, you read that right. We've never met them.
They contacted us through this blog last year when they bought an Island Packet 380, just like Cara Mia, from our same awesome broker, Michele at Gratitude in Rock Hall, Maryland. They too are young, even younger than we are. And if that's not already enough in common, Cara Mia is 'my beloved' in Italian. Habibi means 'my beloved' in Arabic (Rahel and Marco are Swiss, but they lived for several years in the Middle East).
So, we've kept in touch and compared notes on cruising and Island Packet 380s. Since we stayed in the U.S. this year, they sped way past us and are now on their way from St. Bart's to St. Kitts. We'll be trying to catch them next season!
Rahel (or was it Marco?) sent us that beautiful photo on the right yesterday when I was grousing about not having a place to work onboard. They created this little work table below the large fold-down table that you can see above it. Brilliant!
Check out Habibi's blog, which always has beautiful photos:

Thanks, Rahel and Marco, for the table idea -- and for sending traffic to this blog from yours.
