I am on sabbatical now.
Ok, not really.
I retired from the military in 2002. I quit my job at the Missile Defense Agency in 2015. I took a job with the marina in March 2017, and stopped working on September 16th until next April when I will return to the marina.
So, I suppose I can legitimately call it a sabbatical.
My friend, Jay calls his boat Knot Working, so could just say “Not Working” but Sabatical sounds cooler.
We’re doing our last road trip before the cruise south. Long trip, seeing family, friend, brew pubs, eating good food, having fun.
Back at the boat, I’ll be spending several days putting all the running rigging back together, sails back up, filling tanks, removing extraneous gear we won’t require, and storing things we won’t need on the boat.
JoAnne will be working on provisions for the trip, probably three months of standard canned foods and things that last awhile as well as flour, sugar and things we use for baking.
I haven’t written for a time due to hurricane prep, as Irma and Maria were headed our way, so this is just a quick, short entry to remind the worls we’re alive.
More to follow in a few days.
