Hello.
We put Faith on the hard in Virginia last June (08), after completing our family's circumnavigation. After 38 countries, 35,000 miles, and four and a half years, we are trying to acclimate ourselves to life back in Michigan. I have a completed manuscript about our voyage, and have recently started a blog to look at the world from a perspective I didn't have before our journey. The blog and website are at Sailing Faith: Home Page
I'd like to say it's good to be home, but that might be stretching it a bit.

Your children will be far wiser than anyone their age for years to come.

This may be my nightly reading for awhile! Wow! Not sure I could acclimate to Michigan after all that!

Yes, Xort, as in Holland Michigan. When we purchased her, we needed a home port for documentation, and Holland sounded better than Middleville where we call home. She's never seen Michigan, or fresh water at all for that matter.

Greg,

Welcome home! Looks like a great blog, which I'm looking forward to exploring.

If I'm guessing right, I suspect we just might be neighbors -- we're presently here in Holland MI undertaking a refit/overhaul of Por Fin.

Well I was going to say that I hope to see you on the docks, but I guess that is not appropriate. Anyway, it sounds like the adventure of a lifetime. WELCOME HOME!

It's funny feeling isn,t it? We have just finished our over a year long trip from Michigan USA to Poland EU.
Hopefully there are great sailing spots in the Great Lakes. Manitou Island and Beaver Island archipelago being one of the nicest spots we've been to. We have some photos from there on the webpage Zeglowanie po Oceanie - Przygody z Piotrkiem i Magda.
Take care
Piotrek and Magda
