Well I made it through one more season of holidays!!!!!

Didn't kill anyone. Didn't even want to.

I think I have instilled in my family and finally in myself that we are leaving. So theoretically one more set of holidays and we will be gone.

We went sailing for Christmas 2 years ago. Just me and the boys and it was blissfully relaxing. We were sailing in the Bahamas near Spanish Wells when a front moved through and we were stuck in the same anchorage for 4 days. We read and watched movies and snuggled under the covers it was the best vacation so far. We couldn't go anywhere or do anything off the boat.

I admit that I get a bit wrapped up in the planning and execution of an event or trip or hell just about anything. When that was taken away and I had no choice but to just be and let nature take it's course it was very freeing. I hope that when we move aboard and get on our way that there is more of just, being.

This a link to a cool web sight where I have a couple of pics located as does my awesome father inlaw whose pictures are often here on my blog. If you search for a photo called forgotten at the beach, you will find me. I think if you search Waddy Thompson you will find my PAPA!

Robert and I started the removal of my galley and salon. WHOOOOPEEEEE!

I wanted to set fire to the table but he wouldn't let me. He said he could recycle the wood. More on this project soon.

Oooh my goodnes, I was so excited to see you'd posted and then to get photos too!!!!

I've been there! I know where you took your picture, and it is so beautiful it aches. Indeed it is making me ache that I am not there right this second. We used to be there around this time. Boo hoo. Trying not to think of that.


oh my ohmy ohmymymymymy

Waddy's photos are simply amazing. He's pretty sharp with the photo shop as well...that takes skill, I've never even tried.

So good to hear your voice again, and I am glad Xmas went well.

Love O
