Today is day-one back on the boat and it feels so good. It's an odd coming home of sorts. I'm sitting in the salon making my list of provisions we'll need for the next few days and find myself frustrated that it's raining and is projected to do so the next 36 hours. If you lived in my head right now, you'd feel the pink embarrassment hiding in the fact that I actually live in Washington State, quite possibly the rain capitol of the US, and this shouldn't even phase me. But, to me, the boat represents summer and fun, not rain!
So, focusing on passing through this little inconvenience, I'm going to look forward. Below is our agenda for the next five weeks. Of course, as life and boating often does, I'm sure there will be changes along the way!
