We met Drew and Vernita in Seattle when Layla was berthed
across from us in Elliott Bay Marina.
Layla is a stunning,
dark-green Panda 40 - a 40' version of Felicity.
After leaving on our trip within a couple of weeks of each other,
we've seen them quite often while crossing the Pacific. For close
to a month in the Society islands the boats were inseparable -
quite literally as we tied off to each other often as we explore
Huahine and Bora Bora. Drew and Vernita have become close friends
of ours. They now have a son (Matthew) and two cats (Spud and
Elsie) and have returned to Seattle after living in New Zealand
for nearly three years.
