Never say never

Everywhere I’ve never been. I don’t claim to know everything, or even anything. One thing I know for sure is that I anchored in this exact spot with Sookie. I don’t know the name of the bay, or even how I ended up there but I do recall every second of the day I arrived. I’d never seen it rain so hard in my life. Summers in BC are pure magic. I can only imagine a summer aboard a BCC in BC to be pure heaven.

I roll my eyes when Kim-Chi announces she wants to quit her job and sail to Europe. She can’t even swim, maybe that’s what scares me. I know she’ll do it like she has so many times before. Cut and run, not away but to the next adventure. There is no voice of reason in this relationship. We laugh too hard, too often, far too often at the other’s expense. We are two old bags and we wouldn’t have it any other way. The truth is, we have nothing to lose. Still though, I think I’d rather fly but she has my attention.

I’m going to need a wind vane. Old people need dodgers so I could add that to the list. Sun protection, a life raft, lots of wine and a pack of ciggies. That ought to do it. Oh, and two round trip air tickets. Between the two of us we are very well taken care of but not yachters in that respect. I bought this boat for her, for these waters and local exploration. We all have dreams and they can be wonderful but if they all came true… I’ll settle for almost, or most of all. Maybe even all and all or all in one and one for all. It’s been half a year and I’m finally starting to bond with the boat. There is a story in the making here. Until then, Happy Easter friends.
