Oh man, this is what life should be all about. Always. Lazy days on water, half naked in the sun, food and drinks within a couple arms reach and the sound of nothing but wind, waves, inspiring music from the speakers and maybe your partner calling from the dinghy to say he caught a couple bluefish for dinner. If only a handful of our best friends and family were around too, only that could make it better.

Each day of our current lives in New England is one more day of work and sacrifice towards eventually getting to the point where we can enjoy more of this again. After five years of living and traveling on a boat, it still feels like the most obvious and most fulfilling thing to do in the world.

Warmth and simplicity. It's all I want from life.
