Since the sale of Tara we have done zero work on Me Voy. In fact it feels like we haven't done much of anything, especially sailing. The total number of times we will have gone sailing this year is six. That's pretty pathetic. Why is that?
Travis said to me recently, "it seems like the longer we live on this boat, the less likely we are to cruise"...
I think he's right. Having the experience of living aboard Me Voy for several months now, I have more and more respect for cruising couples. Do their tables not accumulate a ton of crap that takes hours to put away? Do their shoes, and coats, and clothes and books, always neatly store themselves in shelves,lockers and closets? Despite the sincere desire to be neat and orderly, to put everything away as soon as we are done using it, we often find our small salon looking like... well like two people with many diverse interests live there.
I wish we could sail more. We both love it when we are actually doing it, but the inertia to get going is incredible. Those blogs you read, where couples (some with dogs, some with cats) are sailing the Carribbean or the world, making it look easy, well I know better. Its not easy. There's a lot of work involved, and those out there doing it have my total respect.
