Tender Spirit Has New Owners!
03 June 2012
Well, we are sad to say good-bye to Tender Spirit. We sincerely hope the new owners love her as we did. If you see her out there, wave and give a cheerful greeting!
We are touring Alaska in the new camper. We have definitely enjoyed seeing the mountains and wildlife. We've seen everything from caribou and moose to ptarmigan and black bears. We have traveled on all of Alaska's highway system. We are now heading down the Marine Highway with stops in Sitka and Wrangell. We will then go back to Haines and then Anchorage to finish out our summer travels.
While we have been cruising, we are also thinking about our future. I expect that we are not...well...quite through with our boating life. Chuck has already told me that our next boat will be called "Spirit Tender"!
So, hang in there as we probably won't be able to really give up our beloved life on the water!!!! I expect it will not look like our past cruising days. Quitting cruising is much more difficult than you can ever imagine!
I am looking forward to getting back into the classroom this school year. I miss the energy and the productivity...and always the challenge to educate young people in a remote setting.
So, it you're out and about and see a truck and camper that is behaving like a sailboat cruiser.....pop on over and lets swap some sea stories!
