This week, after much ado, our beautiful yacht, DESERT VENTURE, sailed away with her new owners.  We wish DV, and her new owners, much success.  It’s likely you’ll see DV out on the waters of Puget Sound – and if so, please tell her we still love her!

We now have a new – and unusual – found freedom.  It may take a while to figure out where life leads us, but meanwhile we plan to spend some quality time on our “dirt house”, and make some plans.   We’re thinking about a bucket list.  Hmmm……thinking, thinking…

Now that DV has moved on, I should probably move in “A New Direction” in blogging.  Let me know what you might be interested in seeing.  I have plenty more stories where all my previous blogs came from – the water –  but I do think I should wander further afield – à la dirt blogging!  😉

Meanwhile, Captain and I are busy adjusting to being boat-less.  Stay tuned!

Ya never know where we’ll turn up next!

I can’t begin to tell you all – my dedicated Followers –  how much I valued your interest and support in our lifestyle.  Even though we were always “At Home Today”, we were often in new ports where we didn’t know a soul – at least at first!  We met most of you along the way, and with your friendship and interest in our life style, we kept you close to us as we moved on and about. You all were a wonderful part of the awesome experience of living and cruising aboard MV DESERT VENTURE!
