Well, I write to you from my humble abode as I sit amidst my sail bags and piles of laundry. It was an amazing week and I am anxious to get back on a boat soon. I spent some time this evening at DiscoverBoating.com, finding out all I can about chartering and time-sharing, and buying boats. Not sure what I'll do yet. But it's clear to me that there's something in there that even my budget will allow

Our week-long trip made me miss when I was a kid and my family would go out on our boat for a month at a time each summer. I used to make so many friends and it seemed like our family was never closer, nor happier than when we were on the boat.

Can’t wait to get back on the water. And, who knows, maybe I’ll see you on the seas!
