Two years ago today…

I sailed into Masonboro Inlet

Wilmington, North Carolina and what was then…

Home…

After being at sea alone for nine days…

and a life changing experience at sea…

I inched my way into an inlet and later onto a dock with two of my best friends meeting me there…

David Christopher and Kevin Jordan…

Lucky came to me later that day…

the best friend I have ever had who never once has judged me…

even though he did not understand why I left him for so long…

he wagged his tail and spun in circles as he barked loudly…

and…

One year ago around this time…

I decided to move to where I am now…

California…

yet, as in the sail from Bermuda, the exact destination changed with a flow…

chilling with friends soon after I arrived at Masonboro Yacht Club while I waited for some “land” food…telling stories of adventure and loving every minute of much needed rest.
