While the Captains are away....
06 April 2010 | Stocking Island, Exuma
This is a letter from Karin and Tracy who so graciously lent me their husbands for a few days.
"What do the damsels do while the captains are away? Tracy has kept me very busy. We spent time with Tom, (Todd's father) as he was missing his son.
We took advantage of the gorgeous weather we had in the north. Todd and Rick probably missed summer while away. We had 3 days in the 80's.
But most of all we thought about what the captains were experiencing and realizing how much you long for some sort of communication to alleviate any question or doubt that everyone was fairing well and enjoying themselves. The SPOT was a life saver for us. Even though we couldn't speak to you, we could at least see you were headed in the right direction and weren't abducted by pirates.
I am so glad that they had the opportunity to spend this time with you and take on a new adventure for both of them. Without your courage, it would not have given them the push to experience such an adventure. I hope that the time spent and the experiences enjoyed help build some new hope for Tracy and I to enjoy an adventure in the blue water.
We hope that your continued travels back north keep you safe and can't wait to see more tales of your travels.
Thanks for taking such terrific care of our captains.
Best of luck Alan, calm seas and fair winds to you,
Karin and Tracy
