Happy is We !!
25 February 2012 | Halifax
Alex, windy and cold.
Let's start today's post with the Photo Caption; poster found @ The Binnacle display @ The Halifax International Boat Show...
"What happens at the Boat Show, stays at the Boat Show"
So we sadly cannot tell you about all the things that we bought.
Like perhaps the AIS and VIking LIfe Raft ?
Oops, my fingers type too fast sometimes.
Happy is We.
It was kind of anticlimactic - the Boat Show that is.
In that, after having been to both the Miami and Annapolis Boat Shows...
And well, the Annapolis one had Painkillers and hot sunny warm weather and so many boats to clamber in and out of that we actually gave up, and had another Painkiller, but that's another story.
At the Halifax Boat show there was sadly, only ONE sailboat to view.
4 years ago, there were 3. Not that we needed to be looking at boats (we have our lovely Banyan) but still...
I guess what's changed is us. Funny how that happens when you make a goal, have a dream, and take that step? All big things start with one step. Well, all things, big or little, start with a step...
Last year we were still looking, and wondering, and what if and when if and how, and, and, and... This year we walked around with a purpose, a list of things to buy... and c'est tout. In and out. Voila !
Funny what a year can do! Funny what 4 years can do - four years ago we didn't even know each other.
And so we celebrated our 4 year anniversary and Valentine's with our usual dinner @ The Keg. Why break with tradition?
Besides, this would be our last ever time @ The Keg. Which is okay, as the steak was mediocre, but the Escargot Stuffed Mushroom divine...
Now it's time to flip the calendar Page on Valentine's and Anniversaries and Boat Shows and February - we're gearing up for some major changes in March. Stay tuned !
