I finished work on Friday. It felt strange as I walked from work to the train station, as if I was merely leaving on any old Friday afternoon. But when the train pulled up and the doors opened, the tears came, and I wept for all the good friends and good times I was leaving behind.
When I got home to Carina on Friday evening, Julian suggested we get under way in a day or two. I was thrilled at the prospect. We both have itchy feet, we want to get going. We have financial considerations too. A few miles west along the coast and our berthing or mooring costs will be a fraction of what they are here in Plymouth. So we’ve spent yesterday and today getting the boat ready and, weather permitting, we’re setting sail in the morning.
Carina’s ready and we’re ready….let the adventure begin!
