Moving on……

The only constant in life is change. That’s one of the lessons I’ve learned – repeatedly!

So it is that my world is shifting yet again. So has Maggie’s. In fairness to her, she has found a new home with a loving family.

Perhaps there will be a new ‘Maggie’ when life gets resettled.


Since retiring, sailing has occupied much of my time and energy, and provided wonderful friendships and shared experiences on the water and on land. Valinor and I have sailed all around the Chesapeake, some off-shore and down the east coast to the Keys and back. Traveling the Intracoastal Waterway was a special experience, and created so many memories I will carry with me of interesting places, fascinating people, and assorted experiences – from peaceful to more exciting than I needed.


Along the way I’ve made good friends – some even have left the water for similar on-land adventures. Many of the stories are shared here on this blog.

Valinor is now For Sale, and hopefully will find another sailor to treat her kindly and continue the adventures. (reply here if you would be interested in purchasing a great boat!)


In the works now are plans to cut the home ties, move into an RV motor coach and go exploring our great Country. It has been some years since I’ve traveled much on land, so looking forward to renewing old friendships, making new ones, and revisiting the many wonderful places I’ve been to but briefly – not to mention being able to take the home where it’s warm — all year around!

So, stay tuned for more adventures of a land-based kind. Our Spot will travel with us, and we’ll do our best to share the fun!
