Two Docks

About 5 years ago I was in Mexico, extending one of my business trips to go diving in the Sea of Cortez. The charter captain said, "See that dock there and that other one beside it?".
"Yes."
"Know what they make?"
"What?"
"A pair o' docks!"

Well, I may have been tired or had a bit too much sun but it struck me as really funny. My laughing turned out to be a mistake as it encouraged him to tell more bad jokes for the rest of the day.

There are many people dreaming of a simple life, living full time on a boat, cruising it around wherever they want to go. Most of them would drop everything today but they are daunted by how much they have to learn first. There's the paradox, seemingly contradictory but ringing true; there is much to learn about how to live with just the basics.

Paradoxically, those "basics" being a 36 foot yacht, tout garni.

I hope that you enjoy the learning. As in many other things, the voyage is the destination.
