And so it begins…….

….with the resignation from our respective positions.  Again.  You would think that it gets easier but it doesn’t. At least not in my case.  I have typically been one of “those” people that settles into a position, nesting, and staying awhile. The reality of this voyage has not quite sunk in – wait, poor choice of words…..I haven’t completely wrapped my mind around it yet. Captain John however, has been ready for 15 years.  SV Bella Nave has been ready for a year.  Hmm….maybe I am more of an anchor than I thought!  It was always a goal and the time as come to untie the lines.

I am not sure if my colleagues, friends, family think I am adventurous or out of my mind. Sometimes it seems there is a very thin line between both.  There is so many great YouTube videos of young couples, older couples, families- all living aboard and abroad. I would encourage anyone who wonders who would, why would they and how do they do this to watch S/V Delos, Sailing Zatara, Sailing Catalpa, MJ Sailing, Sailing LaVagabonde to name a few. We plan to do some as well and hope to have a following, if for no other reason than to have a respite from the daily grind.

So bookmark this site and keep checking back often!
