Brian and I decided that we just can't sell Rain Dog, every boat we looked at
fell short to RDs qualities. Plus the thought of starting over on another boat sends me reeling! So Brian and I pinkie swore not to let our eyes wander to other boats. This winter I will restore her interior wood, new cushions, and paint her bilges, and Brian will do a refit of the mast with new tangs and rigging :-) sweet. Now that we have the RV we can start the boats refit without trying to live aboard, this has been one of our biggest obstacles up to date. Wonder why we hadn't thought of an RV before!
I am getting better, slowing, but surely. I'm pretty good in my home setting and familiar places. But new situations do get me stressed, which is crazy to me. I'm a nurse, I used to thrive on new situations, LOVED to learn and see new things. Brian thinks it is just a matter of time and I hope he is right. Recovery is not as painful now, but it seems just as hard. But don't cry for me Argentina! I live a pretty spoiled life with a very loving husband, family all around. Yep, spoiled rotten.
I wish I could post our itinerary for this summer, as soon as I figure out how to transfer the map I will. Probably no trips in Rain Dog except down to Port Aransas. I'm still not seaworthy :-) but hopefully next year I will be, then it's Caribbean for us!
Kaela is doing well, she prefers land life. I think she will be even happier in the bigger RV. Though I think we might have to make a ramp to allow her to get in and out without our assistance.
