Saying goodbye to a boat
22 May 2014 | Bradenton, Florida
It is hard to describe the relationship a person can develop with a boat. After all it is only a boat, not a sentient being. When the going gets tough and the seas are rough you have to trust the boat. Our boat never let us down. After eight and a half years we have had our hands on every inch of the boat for repairs, maintenance or cleaning. It is so familiar -even the deep recesses of the refrigerator.
It has been a few weeks of "the last time". Tomorrow we will walk off the boat for probably for the last time. Yes. It is sad. We loved the time we lived and sailed on the boat. We will miss the lovely sails, swimming off the boat and the freedom to travel. Most of all we will miss our cruising and island friends and the spicy and quirky islands in the Caribbean. We are happy and excited to be opening a new chapter in our lives...stay tuned.
