Cruising Memories

Unread postby CaptForce » Fri Aug 03, 2018 6:58 pm

As most of you know Nancie and I sold our boat after 45 years of liveaboard cruising due to her loss of mobility. Over the recent weeks we have taken a land cruise north of Florida by way of Savannah, Charleston, Georgetown, Annapolis, Philadelphia, New York City and now in Boston. We've visited these ports and a number of friends from our cruising days. We've been treating our time on land as an adventure since it's been something we had left since our college days, but it's a joy to revisit all these ports. Admittedly, driving through New York is much less pleasant than the run with the current up the East River by Hell Gate, but it's been wonderful to meet up with so many friends from our past. We're visiting the heavy cruiser USN warship "Salem" tomorrow where Nancie's father served in the Med during the late fifties while Nancie and her mother lived in France. Then we're on to Portsmisth, NH and Boothbay, Maine.
I'm sharing this remembrance trip with hope to encourage any young potential liveaboard cruisers to pursue the dream. Nancie and I had other facets to our lives,- careers, children, land adventures .... , but nothing was more uniquely rewarding than the independence and self-sufficiency of cruising off in our boat.

We’re still just as delighted to hear from you even though your cruising is principally on land now. I agree on the drive through NYC vs. the waterways. Can’t say I ever enjoyed a drive through the area. Thanks again for the share!
