It’s Christmas Eve.
Our original hope/intent had been to take Sionna all the way from Maine to Bradenton Florida for Christmas. What with one thing and another and a couple of unexpected surguries and all, we ended up almost 6 weeks behind the plan (remember, “Cruiser’s plans are written in the sand at low tide”!), so instead, Sionna is moored safely in Vero Beach, FL, watched over by another cruising couple we met there, and her humans have traveled by land to Bradenton.
So we are with family for the holiday, off the boat and sleeping in a bed that doesn’t move for the first time in four months – a strange feeling, to say the least!
Here’s hoping that you, gentle reader, are as comfortable as are we. That you are held by family and friends, are warm, well fed, and appreciative of all the blessings this crazy world we live in can provide. Yes, it’s scary and crazy too, but it can be wonderful, all the same.
Merry Christmas, however you choose to mark the occasion!
Blessings, Keith & Nicki
