The evil spell has finally been broken.  We woke this morning to yet another gale but this one is different.  Well rested and at peace we have survived the worst of it.  The calendar might call December 21st the beginning of winter but we know better.  The growing days have started and won’t stop till we have a full 18 hours of beautiful golden sunlight.

We all have a special talent.  If you ask me, mine would be failure.  I have achieved failure more often and consistently than any person I have ever met or read about.  It may be that I’m just not good at anything or maybe its that I’m always ready and willing to take big chances as often as I need to find my way.

Regardless of our outcome its a win win situation.  We were so pumped to land in Florida and  very slowly work our way south ending in the A,B,C, Islands for Hurricane season.  We had all our ducks in a row but one and it was the straw that broke the camels back.  We haven’t given up on endless summer but it has been pushed back till the next opportunity which we both know is right around the corner.

We both woke with a new perspective on our situation and while the whirlwind of moving the boat half way around the world on a moments notice was fun and exciting it was also a bit stressful and exhausting.  We have landed back on earth and all is right in our world.
