Here We Go Again
17 October 2012 | Oshawa, Ontario, Canada
The signs are undeniable.....temperatures are dropping, the Canadian Thanksgiving has come and gone, and there is a growing crop of boxes filled with boat stuff taking root on the floor of our condo bedroom. All are sure signs that it's time to start heading south again.
The summer has been both a lot of fun and incredibly busy. We figured out the other day that we were home exactly one weekend since I got home in mid-May. We used our camper nearly every weekend....traveling to sail with friends, taking the granddaughters camping, visiting with family, traveling through Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire to explore the New England coastline (see lead picture,) and most exciting, welcomed a new grandson into this world. See I told you it was busy....and a lot of fun.
Lately though our thoughts have turned to reuniting with Leeway and heading back to the Bahamas for the winter. Over the last couple of weeks we booked Ciindy's holidays so we can maximize our time together on the boat and we'll cruise together for a few weeks over Christmas and New Years, again at the end of February and for 3 weeks in April which should provide some good times and memories.
So over the next couple of weeks we'll reload the camper on the truck, pack the boxes, throw in my clothes and head for points south. The plan is for me to arrive in Florida by mid-November to get the boat ready and in the water so that when Cindy arrives in mid-December we can head straight across the Gulf Stream for a winter in the Abacos.
Here we go again. Stay tuned.
