A few changes since Hong Kong!
27 June 2013 | Dartmouth Yacht Club
As I effortlessly begin my umpteenth attempt at updating our blog the strong winds of change have swept through our lives. Since our last entry Nancy and I visited Vietnam, spent weeks with our great friend Ron in Cambodia then spent weeks more immersed up to our eyeballs in sunshine ...and a nice pool. We both took a long deep breath in Ko Lanta, Thailand where we hunked down and chilled out... about as much as I have in recent memory. We read, talked, sipped gin (mixed with the nicest orange juice I ever tasted) and we dared to think outside the box....like playing "what if" ...except for real. In that pool we came up with a plan, a plan so fantastic it would surely be the greatest gamble in our lives.... and all we had to do was have the courage to just. do. it..... gitter dun, look forward not back, big dreams unfulfilled.....
Three months since that promise to ourselves we have sold our house in Nova Scotia, visited Vancouver Island, British Columbia and have just returned from our second trip there after obtaining a property on Salt Spring Island in British Columbia, Canada. We will pack what we have left by August and drive west some 6000 km over 13 days. So far so good...the PLAN is working!
KARMA IV will play an even greater part in our lives now, as both floating cottage and escape pod, from the madness that exists on todays roads... glad I had the sailor bug.
and now back to our regular programming....KARMA
