They Made It!

July 24, 2013
I've been trying to think of a clever title for today's post.  I couldn't come up with anything other than the obvious so I'm just going with that.
Nani and crew made it to the Brighton marina yesterday about 1:15 our time. I spoke with Alex around 6:00 and he sounded great. I called back after he and the crew and his sister Eva and her girls had had  some dinner and he sounded even better!
I never thought he wouldn't make it, but I was VERY happy yesterday when I saw the tracker dot in the marina and  it all kind of sunk in about what a huge accomplishment this is for Alex and the crew. 

It has been a long complicated process these past 3 years of planning the trip, preparing the boat, finding a new job, getting the timing right, starting a new job, putting together a new household for us in Bury St. Edmunds, and (the hardest part of) convincing me that it would all work out just fine.......all I can really find to say is: they made it!


  1. They made it! is just the right title! I hope you will keep the blog going for a long time. Looking forward to seeing Nani in her new digs. Alex shared the video series about the Deben River and we have been watching some of the segments. I especially liked the dinghy sailing that seems to be thriving in that area. And I'm looking forward to pictures of life in Cambridge and your trips on Nani. Alex mentioned the sailing club there does flotillas to the Netherlands and other places. Exciting!

    1. Cheryl, I plan to keep the blog going, but it will be harder now that I have to create all the content on my own without all the great messages from the crew!


we love comments!
