Today, day we cross the equator, was always meant to be a BIG DAY…. But it just got a whole lot bigger.
Will and I are down below cleaning up after lunch. We hear weird noises coming from on deck. Giggles, exclamations, laughter – noises not normally associated with taking down laundry.
All of a sudden Katy sticks her hand down through the companionway – “Guys. Look at my new jewellery!!”
It takes us a few moments to clue in. I look at the Punta Mita friendship bracelet on her wrist, thinking, “ya, that’s cool”. Then I focus in on the ring. Engagement ring!!!
So, Ben pulled off the best proposal ever. Equator crossing – Middle of the ocean – En route to South Pacific Islands. And Katy said “Yes” (of course).
Now comes the equator/engagement party! CONGRATS BEN & KATY!!!
