Bermuda: Thanks, I really enjoyed your musings. I also hope your Grandson is doing well. I have a 5 year old and I pray for her good health everyday.
Now, one quick anecdote about Bermuda to Annapolis. About 15 years ago, I took a course through the Maryland Sailing School aboard an IP that originated in Bermuda. There was a couple in the class that had just purchased a fancy new yacht and had matching outfits. They looked pretty slick compared to me and a father and son team. We climbed aboard threw untied the ropes and this couples literally starts getting sick. Before we left the Channel they were throwing up over the side. They did not leave their bunks until we reached Annapolis! At least there was plenty of instructor time for me and father/son team!
