When people ask me what it is that I love so much about the voyaging lifestyle, I always respond, “its the people you meet”.
Every person I know in Bellingham I either met on the water, in the boatyard, or through sailor friends. This week has been absolutely amazing. I decided to take the whole week off from boat work and just play. Wednesday my good friend Manuka, kidnapped me for steamers and black beer. Thursday Liz and Melissa showed up for wine, tonight Rae is coming over for dinner and the balance of the weekend will be spent backpacking and dancing naked in the woods around a huge fire.
Bellingham has the most amazing weather patterns, One day its stormy, the next its dead calm and the sun is shining. I don’t know how I can possibly finish all my projects by July but for now I’m not even thinking about them.
A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.
Thou wilt find rest from vain fancies if thou doest every act in life as though it were thy last.
