November 4 – 23, 2012

These past couple of weeks have continued to be a whirlwind of activity. Boat projects have been interspersed with special visits from family and friends. We wish there were more time to see everyone who is dear to us. Unfortunately, time is running out, and with the weather turning colder, we can’t possibly survive much longer without a heater onboard.

The list of last minute preparations is endless, and there’s no way all of them will be completed. We will just have to accept what’s done and move on. At this point in time, I will also have to skip discussing the finer details of an autopilot installation, or finding the proper water maker hoses.

We are planning to sail out the Beaufort Inlet tomorrow afternoon. Our possible destination is Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas. The passage could take 5 to 7 days depending on what Mother Nature has in store for us.

As we celebrated this Thanksgiving Day, we also recognized it as our last day in the U.S. before heading out on our journey to explore the world. A Thanksgiving in reverse, so to speak. Tomorrow is the beginning of the next phase of our adventures.

treated to 3 nights at the dock, so we could plug in for heat
