Quote of the day: “There’s not a whole lot I enjoy more than doing nothing with you.” – Steve, as we’re walking to read on the fishing dock. ❤️
Well, it’s Tuesday again and we missed last week so here I am!
Trying to write a blog after working and writing all day has become a bit hard, so bear with me as we figure out this new schedule.
I’ve been aching to be back on the boat recently. A lot of that has to do with the weather being nothing but cold, overcast, and rainy for the last couple of weeks. The few sunny days that are thrown in there are what we’ve been living for.
Yesterday, it was 60 degrees Fahrenheit and SUNNY. We worked outside, took Buoy on lots of walks, and wore shorts! It was incredible.
And so, the dreams begin of warmer days full of sunshine; waking up on the boat and having my morning coffee in the sunshine; and date nights that are evening sails.
The truth is, it’s not all sunshine and butterflies, but it’s beautiful in every aspect it can be. We work hard to have this life, and we work hard to make the good days good, but I’ve never missed something this much.
Sometimes I forget just how lucky we are to live on this boat, on the ocean, traveling as much as we can. But when we can’t, when it’s just too cold to do so, I remember how lucky I am – and how much I can’t wait to get back to it.
It’s going to be a big change in a couple of years when we decide to move off the boat full time, but until then, I’m going to soak in every second I can!
We’ll be at Batland this week, and I’m so excited! Steve wants to work on opening up the area where our electrical wires gather by the nav table, and I want to do some cleaning up/out around the boat. We might be able to work on the Bimini to make it more secure, but with that being an outside job, it depends on the weather!
We found out that we’ll be getting our new main sail by the end of next month! And we are SO excited!
Cheers to big and small changes, and all the future sailing we’ll be doing this summer!
Happy days, friends!
One thought on “Sunny Days Ahead”
Quote of the day: “There’s not a whole lot I enjoy more than doing nothing with you.”
Funny. I just said the same thing last night to my wife. Great minds think alike, Steve!
“A lot of that has to do with the weather being nothing but cold, overcast, and rainy for the last couple of weeks. The few sunny days that are thrown in there are what we’ve been living for.”
Same here in the Pacific Northwest, maybe worse. The movie Sleepless in Seattle released a few years after we moved to the Puget Sound. In the beginning of the movie, David Hyde Pierce’s character says “Seattle? It rains nine months a year in Seattle.” We were in a theatre and most of the audience shouted out “NO! TEN!” Almost like a flash mob thing.
The reality isn’t that bad. Mid-June through mid-September, you don’t want to be anywhere else, but it can be a struggle to remember that the rest of the year as your post so well says. Hopefully, Debbie and I will get on the water again, too.
Happy Days indeed!
