Re: Lovers Leap

No worries about hacking - it's been interesting reading the news. Plus I did not know there was a spot called lovers leap otherwise I might have chosen a different header like 'Clodhopping'. which is just about what I am doing living on Mud Island.
Safe!

Re: Lovers Leap

Be patient with yourself. There are hurts that never go away but they do change in time to something more manageable. It sounds like some of your problem is the "friends and family" thing. Maybe you can find ways to free yourself, at least some of the time. Good luck.

I disagree with that entirely. As a cruiser my boat has come to mean more to me than just an object of conveyance or fun, as is probably the case with most cruisers. A boat is a love-affair.
We have recently been forced to sell our boat having lived aboard for 12 years or so and making the transition back to land is all nigh but impossible.
Living with friends and family for the past year or so has really brought home the freedoms that living aboard include, but more than that, the sense of comraderie that exists between yachties is entirely absent in land-based communities. That sense of belonging is missing.
I doubt I will be able to get back into the cruisers world and so I hang about here waiting for I do not know what, reading about the joy of others and loving it.
Standing on the precipice I am reminded of someone saying to me that it is rarely the impact that kills. Having recently fallen 2 storeys I don't remember the trip down - only waking up in pain with that sense of having lost grip.

Peace +

Re: Lovers Leap

Thank you very much to all who have touched this thread. I am a little new to, and as yet unfamiliar, with all the appurtenances/terminology of the cruisers forum, so if I have not replied to your post please forgive me. Nice to meet y'all.
