'Til the butter melts

Pursuing the cruising dream in 32' of sailing ketch

Round two


Keith is about to enter hospital again, a second attempt to repair the retinal detachment that’s been plaguing us since October 1st. This time the plan is a more invasive procedure with a higher chance of success but likely a longer recovery time, more discomfort, etc.  

With luck, we’ll be able to convince Nicki to make another authoring appearance while Keith is resting and sipping rum beverages in the settee.

Mean while, it’s sort of warm, and we’re snug in a berth in the Ashley Marina in Charleston, SC.  As long as no more boats run into us, we’ll be fine for a bit.  Ya’ll take care now, hear?

Living the dream in 32'. We left Maine on August 18th, 2016, and have gradually worked our way south until we felt warm enough. After spending the summer in Maine, working to replenish the cruising kitty, and rehabilitating an old house. we’re headed back on the boat, bringing Sionna back home to northern waters.

  1. Dang, you two. Do I have to come down there??


  2. I got the notice about this post a day before the notice of the previous one, so I was a bit worried about the “as long as no more boats run into us” comment….

    Hope this one takes – sometimes nationally recognized vitreoretinal specialists aren’t enough to get the job done…


  3. Good luck with the surgery. We hope it goes well and Keith has a speedy recovery.

    That marina is notorious for collisions. We have heard from several cruisers that at least once a month someone gets caught by the current. Good idea to hang a fender on the bow.

  4. I’m sorry to hear you have to go through another surgery, but I’m hopeful that this one will do the trick and the recovery will be straightforward.
