The homily was too long and church let out in the middle of a fierce electric storm. A typical summer afternoon in Florida found us running through four inches of water in the pouring rain and holding tightly to a lightning rod some would call an umbrella. We are home.
Easily readjusting to life on land, we realize we prefer the sea. There have been visitors from afar and local friends to commiserate with while home but the lure of the sea is enchanting.
Although I am making rapid progress with physical therapy, it still takes six weeks for bones to rejuvenate. If we receive the doctors blessing next week we return to Annapolis to clean and provision the boat for the next leg of our journey.
Because my duties as full time first mate and occasional Admiral have been suspended by my infirmity, assistance is needed for Denny to pilot Dream Seeker. He has contracted with two “Captains” to come along with us and fulfill my role. They will be with us from Annapolis, MD to Tarrytown, New York.
Only one more week before freedom!!!!
All visited with us during this unplanned interlude.
