Making the adjustment
01 August 2011 | Oak Harbor, WA
It has been a little over two weeks since Jim and I hit land (not literally 'hit', you numbskull!!). One week of that was taken up with Race Week. So I have been 'home' a total of ten days. It seems like a blur.
We got moved into our apartment....barely. We haven't gotten anything out of storage, so we are living out of boxes on the floor. It reminds me of 'The Godgather' when they talk about moving into flats and "going to the mattresses". Ruth has assembled an ecclectic collection of household items she has collected from the boat, friends, local shops and thrift stores and we are pretending to be 'home'. But it is physically tough.
Mentally we are fine. Living in Oak Harbor is much, much better than that urban jungle they call Seattle. So the call was a good one for transitioning.
The charter business has been ramping up well beyond expectations. So we are busy getting the boat ready for that. We have been blessed beyond our dreams with not only several charters, but charters from really cool people! I think I am really going to like this charter biz if the clientele keeps up with our first batch!
