"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
Monday evening we organized a gathering at the marina’s watering hole for anyone who was planning to cross this week. The skippers and crew of 13 boats turned up (I’m sure my Dad will smile when he reads this as he knows that 13 is my lucky number) and we exchanged satellite e-mail addresses and phone numbers so that we can stay in touch if necessary.
But we have a the beginning of a waxing moon, so if God gives us clear skies we will have some light at night which is SUCH a blessing and something we rarely thought about as landlubbers. I never thought I’d say this, but over the last few days there are moments when I actually missed the calm and peace one gets under the starry host with a rising moon in the middle of the ocean. Well, I’m certainly going to get my fill of that over the next two weeks!
