With temperatures about to dip down to 39 degrees by 6 am I am almost all snuggled in for the long winter's night. It is interesting how cozy and securie I feel in the crew's bunk. It is a narrow one so there isn't much room for the lap top, lantern, pleasure reading book, clothes catalogs and of course, my teddy bear. Yea, I can drive back home to my big 4 bedroom house, queen size bed, ultra soft leather sofa and a full professional style office. But It's lonely there and confusing. I guess my boat  has become my safe haven. My Marples 35 represents a new chapter in my life. As the days pass and my cruising plans take shape new friends emerge and new memories are made.


Progress made:

1. rigging ordered

2. financial advisor to dip into my account to pay for #1

3. new stern castle window made

4. good friend and boat designer/builder Paul Lindenberg fixed the rudder

5. Teaching a cute new guy about my boat

6. Dinghy ready to be blown up

7. Girlfriend Linda McGarry painted the rudder

8. Debating about keeping original boat name or changing it to my previous boat's name

9. Discovering the benefits of two vodka/cranberry drinks.

10. Girlfriends, Maryanne, Amy N Carol keeping me in 'check' when combining items #5 and #9.


Ay, the good life!
