Are we still cruisers?
For reasons I have yet to share on this blog, Rebecca and I have spent quite a bit more time here in Martinique than we had initially hoped to. As we’ve grown unaccustomed to being stuck in one spot, this does not make us overly happy. We’d much prefer to be cruising!
When I think about it though, the entire last year has seen us doing anything but traveling where we want, what with our unplanned relocation to Grenada from the Virgins, boat selling and shopping, deliveries, repairs, and off-the-boat travel (our trip to the Galapagos was a highlight of the past year). If we add to all that the two prior years spent running charters, perhaps it’s not even accurate to describe ourselves as cruisers anymore?
According to Wikipedia:
Cruising by boat is a lifestyle that involves living for extended time on a vessel while traveling from place to place for pleasure.
It seems to me that we’ve kind of been missing the last part of that definition!
Anyway, we remain optimistic that our schedule will, hopefully sooner rather than later, once again be our own, and that we’ll be able to continue on with our journey. Our travel bucket list is getting more and more full by the day!
No, Homer, not that kind of bucket list!
In the meantime, here’s a video flashback to three years ago, initially posted just prior to the time when our path diverged from actively cruising. It brings back great memories!
