Our thinking exactly!
Since we sailed away from Hawaii in 2007, we have pretty much just followed our whims and the winds. We did not expect to come to Alaska, quite the contrary, We thought we might be in Australia by now. Alaska, however, caught us by surprise. We expected to spend one summer here then head South. Now, during our second winter here, we think SE Alaska is a cruiser's paradise. We find Alaska suits us better than any place we have ever been and exciting new, unexpected opportunities have presented.
One in particular is of special interest to Laura and may cause us to tarry a bit longer in Southeast AK. If it works out we will be cruising with a purpose, helping to bring important services to remote communities in the islands. We will know in a couple of months how it will shake out.
Right now we think it would be difficult to improve on our situation but we have the freedom to go were ever we please. Short term, we will continue cruising in SE Alaska but that may change during the summer.
