There are always plans :-) Youngest starting high school
and plan to sail Ohana 2 for those years on the East Coast
. Following that return to a large cat and get involved with Youth with a Mission (YWAM) in the Pacific or similar.
Our experience has been 2-3 months cruising then 2-3 months in Alaska
works. Keeps all fresh and an air of excitement. The other consideration is having meaningful goals to serve somehow while "out there".
Just sailing and exploring is great for awhile but after a bit of time something outside of boat life is in order.
Hope you enjoy her blog and let us know of your plans? We'll be out in Block Island all week.
