Mid-Life Crisis...??

That's the question my 18 year old daughter was asked by a friend of ours the other day when told of our plans to sell everything and sail away.  Not an unusual response!  It's interesting to watch a person's face when we tell them of our future plans to live on a sailboat and travel.  Their eyebrows raise and they're thinking we've lost it.  We've been told that there are pirates our there and it's dangerous, or that we'll be back in a few months because we'll get bored or tired of always being inside a sailboat.  We grin and try to remain polite as we're thinking this person obviously has no clue of the vast cruising grounds and community that await us.  We can not wait!  So, we've started a Facebook page and this web site in order to learn from other cruisers and sailors as well as educate those that are not familiar with cruising.   Also, we'd like to share our experiences with those that hope to live the same dream as ours.  Continue to follow, as we have a lot to learn.  We're familiar with boats, but are just learning about sailboats and how to sail and just purchased our own sailboat.  Hasta luego  ...until then.  Midlife Cruising!

Thanks Sandee! Yes, life is short and we only get to do it once, so why not do it the best we can!
