And We’re Off!   6 comments

Just like that, Lee and I have left Pirat and are flying back to the real world – a non-floating world of regular life things and regular places, a world where the questions “Where are you from?” and “What is your address?” are a bit easier to answer. We won’t be defying classification as tourists or residents any more.

I think we are both ready to be back, at least for a while, at this stage in our lives. It was hard to leave the boat all naked and alone in the dirt. Pirat looked so out of place high and dry on a tropical island.

At the moment, I’m trying out the in-flight internet on our Delta red eye to LAX. When I eventually land in Seattle and recover from my travels I’ll get to work on a real post.

For now, I leave you with one of my favorite van-isms from St. Kitts.
The hood of the van is emblazoned with “BU$$INE$$” and above the windshield it says “You won’t find any ‘ting loose”. Curious, isn’t it?

  1. Aw! It’s the end of an era!

  2. Maintain it until your next big adventure, of course!

    • Yeah…I don’t know what I’d write about though! I think I’m going to maintain my blogging in my other blog, MuffinEgg, and put Pirat on hiatus until another adventure comes up.

  3. I remember the real world… I’m excited for you. 🙂 I may want to head back up north too for a bit, I think I’ll appreciate things more both places if I do. I miss blueberries, walnuts, trout… and my family.

    • Right now this world is somewhat surreal…
      I’m definitely appreciating many things more than I did before! My mom’s fridge seems huge and I’m gobbling up as many fresh greens as I can get my hands on.
      Family and food really are the necessities of life : )
