Good morning everyone. Well we have finished the sailing season in very fine fashion. Notice the bow-in winter configuration and the lack of sails on the spars. I won‚Äôt try to gloss over the amazing wonders, and challenges, that have given this season its unique twists. A few short sentences can‚Äôt sum it all up. I have been marveling with wonder at the amazing people and places we have been. While I will miss the bay very much I will also tell you it feels good to be ashore back with family and friends. These last few cruises were certainly challenging with weather systems moving through like a ball in ping pong match. The foliage is like nothing I have seen along the coast in years. My jaw hung open Saturday as Jack Frost‚Äôs magic spread far and wide across the entire Camden Hills. A photograph just couldn‚Äôt capture it all. The foliage on the drive from Camden to Appleton is astounding. So life here is good‚Ä¶ no, great! We have just a few very busy weeks to get the boat put to bed before the crew head home.
I will say it several more times in the coming months but here goes anyway‚Ä¶ Thanks! Thanks to all of you for your patience and your support this summer. For those who made it aboard‚Ä¶ we enjoyed seeing you. For those folks who traveled elsewhere, we missed seeing you and look forward to sharing some memories through the blog in the coming months.
Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
