Today marks exactly one year since we so optimistically set sail from Seattle, with our friends Andy and Anita on board. We’ve been checking, but we have discovered, so far, no regrets for choosing a life on the move.
We’ve had some great experiences in the last year, foremost of which was having Hannah with us for long and eventful portions of the trip. Other treats included getting to spent a month in close proximity to Pete and Nancy, having Andy and Anita on the boat again in Panama, two legs of the trip with Luis and Janice, having Dan Crookes with us for the sail from Miami to Bermuda and some R&R in Bermuda, and meeting other friends along the west coast. We’re looking forward to Sarah and Ellie arriving in about a week. Then Mark Halgren will be coming in the middle of October.
These visits and encounters have helped make up for the downside of the nomadic life, which is distance from those we know and love. We hope to have many more visitors on the boat over the next year.
