Monkey Point

On January 1, 2013, it was about 15 degrees in Salt Lake City, Baxter and I were both working for corporate America, saving for our cruising kitty.  We owned a house as well as Stella Blue, our 37-foot Tartan sailboat.

What a difference a year makes!  On January 1, 2014, we woke up on Terrapin (our Valiant 47) to 80-degree weather with a view of Trellis Bay, BVI as we sat on our mooring in Marina Cay.  We no longer own a house or Stella Blue (though we stay in touch with Stella Blue.)  Our home is where our anchor lies (or the mooring lines are fixed.)  Instead of heading up to Little Cottonwood Canyon to go skiing today, we headed over to Monkey Point to snorkel.  We found Guana Island and decided we liked it and we would stay for a day.

We knew our life was changing last year but we didn’t know where our dreams would take us.  Not all of it has been glorious, we have had serious challenges that  sometimes make us question our direction, but those challenges make us stronger. We celebrate and are thankful for the good times and they stand as a reminder to us to always be grateful. 

Who knows where we might be on January 1, 2015 but we will do our best to make every minute of every day count.

Wrapping up a great year with smiles all around.
