It Has Begun!

IMG_20180706_125535_010For months we’ve talked about taking a sailing trip when we retire. The moment has arrived and the journey began today. We said a fond farewell to Fifty Point marina and our dear friends there and … hello to adventure!

Waves over 2 metres and strong gusty winds were not how I pictured our first day on the water. But we persevered and made it to our destination — a secluded anchorage in a small cove which is a birdwatcher’s paradise.

There’s no one else here, just us, a gentle breeze, water lapping gently against the boat and heron, osprey, swans and myriad other birds all around. At sunset, if we’re lucky, we’ll see the snowy egret land in their favourite tree.

The journey into retirement has begun.
