Home Sweet Home
Now that is quite a sight... the Rum Runner tied up behind the house.
So this is it... the last blog entry. And I am a bit perplexed at what to say. In many ways, I am sad that it is all over. We really had an amazing time; living aboard the S/V Rum Runner and sailing around the world for the last 5 years (okay... not AROUND the world like circumnavigating, but around the world like to other countries and across oceans). It truly was an adventure of a lifetime! It has been more fantastic than I could have imagined, way more difficult than I ever would have thought, and truly a life changing experience. We have learned so much, not only about ourselves but also about the world around us. And I will always cheerish the memories and friends we have made along the way.
But on the other hand, we are also very excited about what comes next. As this chapter in our life ends, a new adventure awaits us. As they say, "one door closes, another opens". And I guess that sums up how we feel right now. There is just so much we want to do in life; so many new places to travel and experience, so much to accomplish in our personal and professional lives. And you can't always do these things while you are off galavanting acorss the seven seas in a sailboat. So we have choosen to end this adventure in order to let the next one begin. And you just never know where the wind will take you.
We would never have thought that we would end up here in Kemah, Texas. Not in a million years. And if you had asked us where we would live after this great sailing adventure, I don't think that Texas would have made our short list (or even the long list, for that matter). But here we are. And all I can say is that we love it! We are busy getting settled into our new life here and are certainly looking forward to our next big adventure... whatever that may be.
So with that, I wish you all Fair Winds and Following Seas on Lifes Great Adventures!
