April 14 â€“ 18.
We love to share our sailing journey, so when our friends David and Michelle asked if they could come see us while we were in Miami, we said, â€œCome on!â€
As their visit grew near I started to worry. We had spent almost all of our time in Miami working on the boat and really knew little about the place. What were we going to do? Where would we go? What if the anchorages were too rough? What if the head grossed our friends out? What if they if they didnâ€™t get the whole conserving water thing? What if they wanted showers every day? What if they needed more space? What if more things broke?
But I forgot that our friends are campers. And that the things that are mundane, boring, difficult, frightening, and unknown can be adventure for people who donâ€™t live on a boat. And sometimes just floating on the water, hanging on a hook, watching the sun slowly drop from the sky and pop up on the other side each day can be all the excitement one needs.
