...and the summer that was continues....

Despite the sagging economy, this was the season to buy a boat!  While many of our friends thought we had lost our minds by buying a boat, we were quite smug with our decision.  This summer's weather was about the best we've had in a long time.  The days were sunny, winds light and temperature searing - perfect for boating.  Tom and I spent many idyllic days enjoying For Us - and not always away from the dock.  She is so homey and warm - with every creature comfort, how could we not love every minute aboard?  We made instant friendships with people who share our love of boating (I'm not so sure they're as in love with their boats as we are though, but shhh on that).  Many a summer night was spent in the company of these people, sharing food and wine, boating tips and boating stories.  I wanted the summer to go on forever!  For the first time in many years, I was content (and took the time) to just gaze at the stars and marvel at their number and brightness.  On a boat like For Us, very little is needed to be thankful to be alive and live in the moment.  Again I say Carpe Diem!
