Happy New Year!

Wow, 2013, can you believe it? I am having a hard time with it, because 2012 just rocketed on by. I guess that's what happens, the older you get, the faster time flies. We had an absolutely wonderful year on Storyville. We sailed to some fabulous places, we got to visit our family and friends and we got a really cute new crew member. I know that I say it all the time, but we really are living our dream.

Some of the highlights of our year were:

  • Seeing how much our grand kids have grown and getting to spend time with them
  • Spending time with our fantastic daughters and nieces and their families
  • Adding our new crew member, Luna
  • Good health for us and our families

Some of the beautiful places we visited on our boat:

  • The Dominican Republic
  • Puerto Rico
  • The Spanish Virgin Islands
  • The US Virgin Islands
  • The British Virgin Islands
  • St. Martin/Sint. Maarten

We are looking forward to a fantastic year. We will spend the next several months cruising slowly down the Caribbean island chain, experiencing new cultures, meeting new people, sailing our boat in beautiful waters and soaking up the sunshine.

We wish all of our friends and family a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. Dream big and start thinking about how to make those dreams come true!

We will open the book.  Its pages are blank.  We are going to put words on them ourselves.  The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.  ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce
