Neverland is in the water again! She passed all her inspections. She has a new coat of bottom paint. All the new electronics are onboard and functioning. Now for the details to fine tune her for the voyage. Mike motored the thirty minutes from dry storage to the in-water berth. It's getting very exciting now. We'll keep you posted.
Perhaps the greatest honor to a dream is when someone offers to write about it. Carol Vaughn, a journalist for the DELMARVA area of the newspaper the Daily Times, asked If she could interview me for the newspaper. I agreed. We met and talked for an hour. She created an article that was incredible. Her words described our planned adventure better than we could ever articulate ourselves. That's why today I am grateful to reporters, to journalists who know how to craft information for the world. They are essential windows to our understanding the events, the issues, the politics, the world around us. So, today I hope we will all take a moment and thank the people who bring us the news and work hard everyday to inform us about all the things around us. Let's take a few moments and thank a journalist for all the hard work they do.
It was really fun to realize we made the front page!! How cool is that?!
We are now T-minus 4 weeks from departure.
Mike & Monica
We plan to write some notes here about our sail trip and the preparations for it
