LET THE DANCE BEGIN
21 February 2011 | Galveston
We are very busy completing our final list of "to do's" and ready to start the next phase of life's journey. The Princess is busy making a dress for our son's March wedding and sewing lee clothes for our salon berth. I have been stowing reserve fuel, our life raft and spare parts while Cathy has been redoing our live aboard wardrobe. Off the boat went my suits and ties for work and the majority of our dress and winter clothes. Our new boating wardrobe is tropical casual. The new sat phone is tested and the sat radio is working great. Our dock mates gave us a "Sail Away" party and the manuevering has begun to see who gets what slip after we leave this Friday. We had the wine in the cockpit at sunset slip.
Our crew is getting ready for out trip to Marathon in the Keys. We are leaving this Friday (2/25). Cathy will be driving with Sassy from Galveston to Marathon with visits along the way. We will return in late March for the wedding and a couple of weeks work while our son, Brian & new daughter-in-law. Elisa are enjoying their honeymoon. Retirement is then effective April 8th and then back to Marathon.
Then it's time to dance with my darling for the rest of our lives
