We took up cruising because my husband loves sailing and I didn't want to retire and be bored. Cruising keeps us active and allows us to satisfy our wanderlust. Best of all, it's brought us into a community of like minded people where we have developed wonderfully strong friendships. At our age (57 & 62) making new good
friends is unusual. With cruisers, it's the norm, not the exception. It's not all palm trees and fru fru drinks but we wouldn't change our lifestyle for anything.
