Leaving MA for NC to sail!

Hello, So happy to be on the Forum!

My husband Hawkeye and I caught the sailing bug a couple of years back and are selling our house in Western Massachusetts to run away to Oriental, NC. We're a few months away from moving but in our heads are already there!

He's a former professional photographer, I'm a former everything (having bounced around many jobs, most recently soap and bodycare making), and we've been small-scale farmers growing herbs and veggies for the past 10 years.

We're both in our early 50's, looking for a slower-paced, close to water and Nature lifestyle. We'll be taking more sailing lessons in Oriental and hope to find and buy that perfect-for-us sailboat over the next year or so.


Looking forward to talking with and learning from you all,

sheri

(just adding that our goal is to spend half the year cruising the Caribbean on a 36'-40' monohull)
