Sunny, happy days   Leave a comment

What a difference a few weeks makes!

A nice sunny day for some work on deck.

I arrived back in Rhode island last Friday to alternating rainy and sunny days. It’s finally Spring! Today was one of those sunny March days that makes you hopeful for summer. Lee set up the cockpit table and worked on projects outside. The canvas guy was also here working on our companionway dodger for most of the day. I organized things down below, ran errands, and did some much-needed yoga.

My trip to California was a nice break and my thesis defense went fabulously. It could not have turned out better. I still can’t believe I’m done!

Missing Lee was the only downside to my trip. He was all alone on the boat and really missed me too. Now, we have emerged from our time apart ready to take our relationship someplace new. We’re engaged!  We’re thinking a wedding on some Caribbean island is in order.

Needless to say, the happiness on Pirat is pretty intoxicating right now. I’m sorry, it’s just too amazing not to share!

More to come on our updated sailing plans for things Spring, Summer, and Fall.

  1. engaged?! Congrats!!! 😀 😀 😀 I’m so proud of you for doing so well on your thesis!

    Sounds like it’s a whole bunch of good things ahead. 🙂

    • Thanks! I feel kinda bad for not calling people to tell them. But hey, this works just as well. It’s so nice to have the thesis behind me. What a relief!

  2. Holy Crap! Congratulations you two! I’m very happy for you and think the Caribbean wedding is a great one. We honeymooned in St. Maarten and loved it. Best wishes from us and if you are really desperate for a tour guide around some Caribbean island I volunteer… Take it easy.

    • Thank you! We’ll let you know if we need a guide. I don’t even know where we’d go on a honeymoon if we’re already in the Caribbean.
