Gayle, Cailin, and Eric flew back to NC on 8 April to complete homeschool testing and participate in a couple of local homeschooled acivities planned moths ago. Nonetheless, it was very hard and emotional to see them off.

I am making preparations for some singlehanded sailing down island. The exact destination is undetermined. I’ll have to make a decision by 15 May either to turn NE and sail back to NC or sail to the SE for Grenada. Our reunion plans will be built around the chosen destination.


It has not been this quiet on the Far Reach in months.  We are both feeling a little lonely.
