My ex-husband wanted to sail around the world. Not in this 22 foot Tanzer, but it was our first sailboat. We still lived in Wenatchee Washington when we bought and moored this towable boat in Seattle. After making our weekends longer for sailing which meant a three hour drive over the Cascade Mountains, we finally sold almost everything and moved aboard for a summer. We had dock space on Lake Union and played in the Sound amongst the San Juan Islands. I loved the quiet on the water. We named the boat ROGAZO, using the first two letters of his, mine and son’s names. It had a tiny little cabin and you could basically sit on the head (that’s toilet for you land lubbers) and reach everything: bed, table, sink and stove.
Although the idea of traveling the world captured my heart being out of sight of land did not. It was just one of the things that broke us apart. Yet I am happy to report that he still has this dream and along with his new wife will be traveling the world on a bigger sailboat within the next couple of years.
Sally from The (Mis) Adventures of Karl and Sally has started a new meme where the past is remembered through sharing old family photographs and this is #19. I love the idea and hope you will too. So join the fun by clicking here.
I’m still in the canyon so won’t be able to link this. Will try to catch up on posts when I return from hiking rim to rim across the Grand Canyon.
