I’m back… I hope.

I have been ‘away’, very busy, difficult to find time to write… but I must.  It’s healthy. It’s important.  But breaks are good too. I started writing this post almost 3 weeks ago.

I know you haven’t missed me (except maybe Jess).  You are also busy with living life, too… right?

So here’s are pictorial story of what I have been up to

I have been learning to sail a yacht like these:

We were out at sea every day for 3-4 hours, even in conditions like this:

Actually, the ocean swell was not quite this high, but there was at least one wave that broke over us – wet, wet, wet (like in the “Yacht in Storm” video at the bottom).

This was all part of a 12-month course to become one of these:

skipcapt…and there was a final Skipper exam…

AND I PASSED!!! 😉   😀    So if you get to bottom of this post, you can enjoy the Gilligan’s Island theme song/intro, as part of my celebration.

The rest of the sunset pics below were taken by me during one of the lessons.  I hope you enjoy…
