|Through the mooring field one last time|
Last night at our dock party we got to say one last goodbye (for now) to most of our closest friends and family, but even then, it still didn't quite seem real, I knew we were leaving the next day, it just wasn't sinking in.
Then today a few people stopped at the dock to wish us well, both those we had met before and some that we hadn't. I loved hearing their excitement and support for us, very reassuring as we were just an hour or two from shoving off. On our way out to the channel we had some friends follow us out and give us an air horn send-off while others were hooting and hollering from their boat with excitement. It gave me chills and almost had me a little choked up. It was right then that it hit me of what we are actually doing and it took me a little by surprise I guess. I'm actually quite surprised I didn't have a meltdown on the way out, I thought for sure I would!
But even at our dismal speeds, we sailed the whole way. I was a little surprised Ron didn't turn on the engine...but then again we're cruisers, we aren't in any hurry!
A pretty good start to our new lifestyle I'd have to say!

|And Happy 10th Birthday to this old lady, what a way to celebrate!|
