It’s two years today since we left Seattle for San Francisco, after a great send-off, with our friends Andy and Anita on board for the trip to San Francisco. We’re delighted that they will be joining us again in a couple weeks, for the sail from Greece to Licata, Sicily. Before that we’ll have Birgit’s mother and sister on board for a week, anchoring out, doing some swimming and exploring. We’re glad to have the chance to spend some nautical time with them both.
We were surprised, last year, to meet couples who told us that they had been cruising in the Mediterranean for 10 years, 12 years, and more. But now we are beginning to understand that time just slips by, that there’s always someplace you haven’t seen, or a favorite place to visit again. Sure, there are some downsides to living such an itinerant life, but so far the pleasures far outweigh the regrets.
Thanks so much to everyone who has shared in some aspect of the journey!
