Have the seeds we’ve planted begun to sprout?
While we may not have been in our homeland, that did not deter us, or the other Cannucks down here, from celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving yesterday. And instead of simply feasting on turkey and all the fixings, which we all most certainly did, I spent some time reflecting on all of the things that we really do have to be thankful for.
A wonderful meal shared with excellent friends in a beautiful locale…
…much to be thankful for!
For whatever reason, opportunities have begun to present themselves to us. Here is just a small example of what I’m talking about. On our way home from the Thanksgiving Day dinner at Clarke’s Court Bay Marina, Rebecca and I found ourselves being passed by several buses which were full to capacity. Although we weren’t in a huge hurry, after the 4th bus drove by us, we decided to give hitchhiking a try. As often happens when we do so, mere seconds after we stuck out our thumbs, a local resident stopped to offer us a ride. It just so happens that this particular driver is also the Captain of the Seawind catamaran docked right in front of us at one of the huge houses up on the hill. Not only that but, after we spoke for a few moments, he offered to take us out sailing with them this coming Sunday! While this particular opportunity might be chalked up to simple coincidence, some others are definitely the result of seeds that we have planted. Regardless of their source, we are thankful for them all, and wish the same good fortune to our families and friends, and also to all of you following along with us.

Oh, and in case you missed our 800th Day Cruising Anniversary yesterday, don’t worry, we missed it too. It’s alright though as we’re both still on the wagon. We’ll save the party for some time when we can enjoy a nice glass of wine. And for those who were stumped by yesterday’s quiz…
