Here it is. After many many many nights of talking out all of our options, reading all the comments and help you guys sent our way, and having a few discussions with friends we have made up our mind as to which way we are leaning for our next adventure…ie. our lives.
The advice to “Keep It Simple” was a resounding one. We had so many options that we were slightly drowning in them all and not feeling 100% in any one direction. It seemed like there was too much stress involved, and that many of our ideas didn’t bring us much peace to our beings. That is until a friend came down to visit and having his outsiders perspective on our lives made many things more clear.
We are boat people, for now anyways. The thought of selling our sailboat or hauling her out and not having access to her for 6 months was unsettling. So with that we knew that those two options were not very viable. We are keeping her, living on her, and having this ship remain our home for at least another year.
