Since I bought my first sailboat at age 11 and sailed on the estuary of the Croton River, I have known I would move aboard and sail away some day. I am still of that mind but am not so sure I want to give up so many other outdoor enjoyments to go sailing full time. Such a tough spot to be in. Our home is a spectacular cruising destination. The fly fishing is great in Maine and I have been hard it for 40 years. For us Memorial Day weekend means canoe racing. Then there are the slopes and trails in the snow! We love all of it. Ha!
One day at a time. I guess we will see if the cruises get longer and closer together. Our next extended adventure may be a three year cruise from Seal Harbor to Duluth, MN and back. We will park the boat at least twice and could extend the trip if we want to. Up the Hudson and back down the St. Lawrence. We will be close enough to enjoy all the other stuff and in that climate won't be involved in sailing in December.
