Cruising Again after a Year of Changes

A year of changes. We built a house and watched as our friends still cruising headed South. Other friends took full time jobs, beat cancer, lost to cancer, became land cruisers, got new dogs, and started to date again. We took on new friends, neighbors with similar tastes and drinking habits. We rejoiced, and we mourned. On July 10th we were blessed with our grandson, Sullivan Elias.
No, he was not named for the pilot who landed in the Hudson River. But Peter’s father Elias has been memorialized and his memory will live on with this namesake. Sully is so precious. And huge. On July 20th my Aunt Dar passed away. Since moving in with us again in February, she faced many trials and became my full time job. I am so blessed to have had her in my life. She was the world’s biggest Yankee Fan, and we buried her with a Yankee hat, a bobble head Tino Martinez, and a picture of Robin Ventura. And added the Yankee logo to her headstone.

Where are you cruising too?? We are in Oahu Hawaii at a friend's condo for the next 5-6 months. Then we fly to our boat at Atlantic Yacht Basin and head for the Great Lakes.
Great blog, keep up the good work.
