Yes, we are actually going to DO IT! We’re going to put aside our obligations, duties, jobs, chores and HoneyDos. We’re going to move aboard Aqua Vitae, and Go.
“JUST GO!” is advice we’ve heard over and over from our boating friends who have done exactly that, and we (I, really, Peggy) have finally come to my senses. Not everyone has the opportunity to live their dream.
We will leave Baltimore and head south when we see a good weather window. A good weather window doesn’t mean balmy sunshine and sparkling waves, it means flat water. The Chesapeake Bay is a large body of water that can be very unforgiving, especially as air and water temperatures drop.
Our ultimate goal is to move slowly south, enjoying the people and places we meet. We will stop and smell as many “roses” as we can find, which may mean a lovely anchorage, or a charming town, both of which abound on the ICW (IntraCoastal Waterway) the “road” we will be traveling.
