Hello to all my good friends on the Cruisers Forum and to all those new here within the last year and a half since I sold
. Nancie and I have been adapting to a life ashore. She has done well with a hip replacement, but still has difficulties with post-polio syndrome. I'm beginning a second season with a sixty piece band and doing a lot of skating. There is a joyful life for us after cruising,... much travel,..... a new two week old Granddaughter. Nancie has a number of plants and some ducks that she fusses over. We rent a small place that is still about four times the size of our former boat
, but we remain reaping the benefits of non-ownership. After 45 years aboard, we still do best without much "stuff".
We occasionally receive updates and photos from the young couple who bought our ketch
, "Aythya". We love the care that she's been given and the renovations.
I'll be scanning about and seeing what all are up to, but without plans to keep the presence on the forum that I had in the past. 'best to all!
