Twas the Night Before . . .

  So, here we are, still in the marina, but with firm plans to set sail tomorrow morning for points south and east. Though looking around the boat it seems like we've got a lot left to stow and secure, it's been a whirlwind week of preparations. We got all the family visits done at Christmas, presents delivered and received. Last Tuesday brought a huge step as we dropped off our trailer - our home for the last two years - at the dealer to be sold on consignment. And we took an even bigger step today as we dropped off the truck at the dealer. That truck had been a part of my life for the last 14 years, but now it's gone, and we have no means of transportation except for the boat. We actually got it sold last week, but kept it until the last day in case we had other errands to run. Finally, we took the boat over to the fuel dock, filled her up, and brought her back ready to sail.

   It seems like we've spent years getting ready, but really it's only been 8 months. These last few weeks have been the hardest ... both the running around arranging things and the watching the weather for a good window. But tomorrow's the day, we're FINALLY cruising!! Wish us fair winds and following seas, and say a prayer for our safety. We'll let you all know how it's going as we travel!

Out with the old ...
And in with the new!
