When people find we live on a sailboat, they often say something like “living the dream, eh?” But it ain’t all margaritas and sunsets.
Just ask Honey.
While Hurricane Harvey was crushing the gulf coast of the United States, we were anchored in a spot hit by rain and high winds.
It was nothing like a hurricane. But it added a little more poignancy to Honey’s walks.
We couldn’t help but flash to the pictures of boats floating over the streets of Houston.
Hurricane Irma has me tracking the forecasts and thinking of blogging friends on land and sea in Florida and the Caribbean.
Life on a boat or land in lovely Florida or the Caribbean is idyllic at times. But it’s not for sissies.
Good luck, everyone! And here’s hoping we avoid a boat fire to give us even more empathy for people coping with the wildfires in the western United States.
