Planning the Return
27 February 2012 | Everett
The wedding is over and time here in the north lands is coming to an end. Scott’s trip back to La Paz is booked for March 7th and I’ll follow a couple weeks later after I finish up some work meetings and other necessary evils.
The wedding was wonderful, no disaster stories and the bride was beautiful. The kids are currently on a two week honeymoon in Hawaii.
We have accomplished a lot here in the 6 months we’ve been back in the Seattle area. We bought a foreclosure house and remodeled it from the drywall out, moved in which ended our 3 and a half years occupation of 2 storage units. We figure the expense of the Red House will be roughly what the storage units cost us a year. We won’t be staying in the sea for summers as we’ve survived that war twice and don’t feel the need to do it again. This little place will give us our own space and a nice spot to spend the summers seeing family and friends here.
We are now anxious to get back to our boat home and “nest” there again. Rod and Tucker kept a close eye on Scott Free, ran the engine and checked the bilge pumps, Louis and Fabio kept the bottom clean and other neighbors just made sure her waterline remained the same.
Yes, anxious, very anxious to get back home!
