We are back on our sailboat(s) after several weeks of vacation in California and Indiana. It was fun being on solid ground, Indiana felt especially non-moving with 1000 miles +/- to an ocean. Also fun to sleep in a fixed in place bed located in a hermetically sealed quiet room. Oh yeah, all the water pouring down on me in the shower, the endless flow of electricity without having to generate it myself.
So was I happy to get back? I think it’s an unqualified yes.The conveniences were nice but being sealed up in the house I didn’t stop to watch a sunset, there was no clear water to go snorkeling in, and all those empty rooms filled with stuff that still need cleaning made me once again appreciate the simplicity of our life.
Last night we had a drink at the Lorelei, watched the band and the sunset. I guess home is where the boat is.
