Ok, full disclosure, Captain Harold is my brother or, if we’re being technical, he’s my half-brother.
What you need to know about Captain Harold, or “H.” as I call him, is that even though he appears to be carefree and laid-back, he is actually very serious and cautious.
H. is the oldest of 4 children sired by our father. There are 3 boys and me (and, no, I didn’t get treated like a princess growing up – quite the opposite). As much as I hate to admit this, Harold has influenced us all. He has set the standard for music, quality of life, and politics for the three of us. Thanks to H., we all can ‘name the band’ when he plays a song and we will never forget the great “Standard of Living v. Quality of Life Debate” he had with our father.
Island Dreamer was born of this philosophy. He has successfully married his love for sailing with his business sense and achieved that elusive American dream of making a living doing what you love.
Now, it must be said, there is no Captain Harold without his wife (and my sister-in-law), Captain Margie. No one in the family can figure out why she married him, but we are eternally grateful to her.
Together, Captains Harold and Margie have created Island Dreamer and a wonderful life aboard sailing around the Keys and embarking on new adventures.
