pirate Last Night on Land

After two decades tonight Sunday is my last night the terraces at Beach Street NEWCASTLE AUSTRALIA. From here on it looks like the boat is home. Any friends who want drop in for a sundowner and a furniture fuelled BBQ/bonfire are more than welcome. Just look for the mess and pirate flags and you have the right number.

Sorry if I can’t get back to the thread for a few days as I am madly trying to move the last things out over a six pack and the cook up. Likewise, the internet and landline have long been disconnected.

Dude, we are so happy for you - CONGRATS! :-)
The amount of cra@p we have to get rid of before we move aboard is... well... overwhelming to say the least. And we've already halved it! Bonfire is sounding good at this stage! All things going well, we'll be joining you in <6 months :-)
Wishing you all the best!
Michael and Caitlin

Goodonya, SF. Don't forget to remember each day as you change your life utterly. I don't mean you aren't going to be you but when seen in the time shift of living aboard your boat, most things will be lit by a very different light and are clearly not what they used to be. Best of luck, mate. B true to yourself as you find what that is and yes, it will be thrilling working without a net. Wooo Hooo!

With everybody else being so sincere, I'll bet At Sea has been embarrassed into not doing droll on this forum again...
