Ready…. Set… wait.

We are trying to be travelers…. and finding ourselves in transition.

To be sure, getting ready to go offshore and then exploring the west coast of Vancouver Island has been an amazing experience.  From the beginning we knew we were testing ourselves and the boat, and I do think we have learned a great deal from our experiences so far.  One thing has become clear as well:  It is not always easy for four different personalities to be in happy agreement all of the time.  And so, we are faced with a few dilemmas…  As we grapple with how to best face the next phase, we have decided to stay in Victoria for another season, at least that is the idea at the moment…

Here’s a little gem of a sailing day (video clip) when we were south bound in the Juan de Fuca Strait…

And… as I was reminded recently by a friend: “A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.” ~ Lao Tzu

I think we might be good travelers after all 🙂

  2. Hi you guys, this is Bill from Fleet in Sardinia. Sounds like you had just the rigt kind of summer. You will know what is right to do and when. Hippodackl is out of the water for a refit – new rigging and motor work. That kept us back in Sardinia this winter. Gabriela and the kids are in Berlin while i am here tomlook after the refit until Christmas. Hope you are enjoying the Inner Harbour home. We are finding the home schooling pretty smooth. Take care. Say hi to everyone at Fleet if you are going again this season.
