The funny thing is that this is all becoming very normal - albeit still comical- but we are maneuvering around quite well! The really funny thing is that it is now hard to imagine how we are ever going to get our 'land legs' back again and walk perfectly upright without falling about! Or, sleep through an entire night! Or live without the noise of something rolling, clanking or being wind-whipped about!
Now why would anyone in their right mind want to live like this.... you might ask? Well, I have been asking the same question of my self quite a bit lately! Hopefully it is a means to an end- the end being the Paradise of the South Pacific where you anchor in tranquil coves off of white sand beaches and get to sleep in your own bed each night! Or maybe I got caught up in someone else's 37 year old dream of sailing to the South Pacific and am now dreaming the same dream! Or maybe I just decided to get adventurous in my middle age! Well, however I got here- it is an adventure and I can't think of any other way to end this except for saying- it's too late to turn back now!
