2010 - Year of Departure

04 January 2010 | Ray Here...
Four days into the new year and our optimism is pretty high. Both of us want to be out of here and on the way somewhere by April 30th...at least that's the schedule. Granddaughter Jillian has just left and returned home to Seattle (time to return to school) and we're turning now to projects. Of course today it's raining out (of course)...actually pouring out...but we can plan anyway. Now our hope is that the Social Security part of our governement starts getting our check right...why any mess over such an insignificant thing is beyond me...Oh well...that's just the way it is with Uncle Sammy.

Our plan now is to go ahead and do what work we can on the boat until we depart for Victoria, and the San Juan's. We're trying to find out now about space to park our boat in Vancouver during the Olympics...and whether it's even feasible or not. I went to the Olympics in Japan and would love for Sandy to experience them...it is awesome with so many people from so many countries.
First we have to get the boat up to par and...oh yeah...learn how to sail her....ha!
Vessel Name: Pure Joy
Vessel Make/Model: Islander Freeport 41
Hailing Port: Seattle, Washington USA
Crew: Co-Captains Ray and Sandy
Retired July '09. This is our second sailboat together. Before, Sandy had a Morgan '38 which she sailed from Port Angeles around Puget Sound. Sandy has motored to Mexico in the 70's...and lived and worked on her own boat for 3 years in Alaska. [...]
Extra: We are happy to report we are actually doing exactly what we really really really really really want to do...(short of winning the lottery of couse :)...in any case...it's PURE JOY! HF Contact: KF7IDH
