I sit here in Kemah, reading my friends blogs that have left and are living
their cruising dream, and I think to myself…grrrr…why isn’ t that us? Why
haven’t we left yet? When I first started dating Cory he told me about his plans
to go cruising and said he was expecting to leave in about a year….well that
was about two years ago. Now he says, in about another year or two. Damn it!!
Are we ever gonna leave! Well..it really isn’t Cory’s fault, there are just so
many things to think about, and to do, once you really get down to starting to
prepare to leave. We have tackled countless projects to get us closer to
leaving, but unfortunately there are still countless more. Seams like the
minute you finish your list of must haves or to dos, then you come up with just
one more thing. So as the warmer weather starts, we continue to think about the
next big project that gets us closer to cruising. Looks like it’s probably going
to be dinghy davits.
The warmer weather makes me happy because at least we
can have some more local adventure’s in the sun as we prepare for our biggest
adventure. We miss our friends terribly and wish we could have shared in the
adventure with them….this spring and summer won’t be the same without them.
There are lots of fun things on our calendar this year though, so we will make
the best of all that Galveston Bay has to offer. All the while, further
preparing the boat, for that big dream. My goal this season is to keep up with
pics and blog post everywhere we go, and every upgrade we make, so everyone can
share in the fun.
