The reality of the purchase has lit a fire under us. We are madly finishing things on our existing home readying it for sale. This has meant painting, painting and more painting for me. I’ve also been posting things online for sale. So far we have sold our Christmas tree and kayaks. It would be easier if work wasn’t necessary, but every cent towards the cruising kitty will mean a potentially longer cruising life. This is the first time in my life I’ve got a five to ten year plan. People who know me are placing bets on how long it will take for me to get bored. I’ll be signing up for the WOW Women on water session which takes place in March. Doing this to help releive the captain from some of the chore of teaching me how to dock. The course promises some practice on a simulator of sorts.
Christmas was the simplest yet this year knowing that we are moving, we purchased nothing that needed to be stored. We still haven’t figured out where we will store what we plan to keep for our eventual return to land, but that will come in some forced motion. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. The adventure is just beginning. I look forward to sharing each piece of our puzzle as we transition to our new life at sea.
