Thirty days. Hard to conceive how much time that actually is… One major holiday, one major sunburn. Several wind burns. Heat waves where we plunged into frigid water to cool down, and days so cold even full offshore gear didn’t help keep us warm. 14 marinas. 3 mechanical failures. One Coast Guard tow. One weekend visit from a friend. Lots of bagels, coffee, and hot chocolate. 2 firework displays. A few markets, a few more marine stores. Lots of crappy wifi connections. 4 loads of laundry. Many good meals made in the tiniest kitchen we’ve ever had. A few rain storms, and an abundance of sunsets and sunrises. Hundreds of photographs. Anxiety and peacefulness. Learning curves and afternoon naps. E-books and ABBA therapy… It’s been quite the month.
