Four years ago today, we sailed out of Eagle Harbor and into cruising. Our very dear friends sailed out in company with us, and waved us off onto our adventures. Against the backdrop of a beautiful August day, the kind only Puget Sound can conjure, it was a heady beginning and bursting with promise.
It is stunning to me how the time has flown. I look back at the little children we had, small enough to still find knuckle dimples. Those have been replaced by gangly kids- a teenager, even- sure of themselves and their floating lives.
We still have (and are asked) many of the same questions now as we were then. Is this always going to work? Are we going to circumnavigate? When are you going home?
No answers yet. Just immense gratitude to be able to live this life.
