Boy has our lives changed in the last few months. We’ve gone from being the only ones in our breathtaking anchorage to being able to hear the intimate conversations of our neighbors from the comfort of our bed. How cute. Even though I’ve been back since April (holy cow!) I am still managing to meet up with friends for the first time since I’ve been back. They always seemed shocked that when they ask, “So are you glad to be back?” I quickly respond, “Not at all.” Sure, I’ve managed to snag a really awesome job. And, sure, it is nice to be able to get a pint of ice cream at 3am if my little heart desires or to be able to afford a bottle, not a box, of Trader Joe’s finest (although, I’m happy to report their boxed Block Red is pretty darn tasty). While we will always long to be back out on the open water, we have been trying to make the most of our time back in the city while we’re here. So, here is a bit of a non boat related photo dump to catch you up. We will return to your normal sailboat related programming momentarily.
