Thanks everyone for such a warm welcome!
i2f: Yes, we will be spending as much time as possible in the Bahamas
before heading further South! I guess I got so used to lumping them together for simplicity sake, when telling other people of our plans. Love your boat name (and abbreviation) by the way!
Thanks John (Swagman): Fulfilling dreams are a very good reason for living! We are very happy to be realizing ours!
Maje and Tom: Good luck finding your new cat. Enjoy the search, I know we did.
Mike (YOGAO): Velcro Beach - that's too funny!
We were hoping to leave before the end of the year, but loose ends have not completely been tied yet. So, we will see...............
Zeehag: It won't be difficult for us to leave! Although it is beautiful here, it is just not "our" paradise. We are enjoying the beaches while we are here, but are really looking forward to the clear waters that lie ahead! At least the water
is warmer here most of the year than San Diego
(where we are originally from by the way). Having grown up in So. Calif., I will never forget the first time I stepped into the Atlantic off Miami
in August - what a shock that jacuzzi water
Thanks again to everyone! Love CF!!!
