The Master List
It’s time to plug another Blog: Sailboat Family. Coincidentally, this is a family that is on a fairly similar path to ours, and on a very similar timeline. I check their blog periodically and have gotten some good ideas from it, including one of our favorite recipes! Thanks guys.
The author(s) of that Blog recently wrote about a big list of things that they were working their way through, leading up to their departure. We, too, have a bunch of lists (as I think every cruiser does). With only 8.5 months until we leave Kingston I think we need to get cracking on them! I am going to spend some time today merging these lists and see what I come up with.
This list will be MUCH, MUCH longer before I am through today!
One of the things on our (my!) list is, as I wrote about, to improve my swimming skills. I went to the pool yesterday to practice a bit over the lunch hour, and will be going back again tomorrow with Rebecca to do the same. Rebecca can swim like a fish so she can just play in the pool while I splash around like a wounded seal. I figure that three days of swimming practice per week for the next 8 months or so will have to pay dividends!
I wish I could swim like a seal!
