They must be an exciting bunch, Cindy.
Have fun with it
It's lovely to be aboard when you are out cruising and living the life of adventure (even with all of the hardships it takes to cruise)...
...it takes a whole different level of Zen to stay at the dock with all of the hassels of boat life while mainstream landlubber life is all around you and your friends are either out cruising or in a big comfortble house.
Most of us are not tied to the dock for lack of being an exciting bunch, most of us have either gone cruising once and are planning to go again or are planning to go for the first time and saving/ planning/ working on that goal all the while. Very few people I know have the financial resources to just jump aboard and take off.
And even if they are not planning to cruise
(this applies to many of my marina neighbors) they are a wonderful, motley, nature loving, off beat group of people who choose to make their life afloat. It's the best neighborhood I could ever hope for!
