"Such a feelin’s comin’ over me,
There is wonder in most everything I see;
Not a cloud in the sky
Got the sun in my eyes
And I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a dream.

(Richard Carpenter, John Bettis: Top of the world)


Unlimited possibilities

We like to sail down wind where the sun shines and the water is warm. Because of these preferences the trade winds and NE monsoon carried us west across the North Atlantic, the Caribbean Sea, the Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocaen, the Southern Atlantic Ocean and back to the North Atlantic. But it took us 16 years (not counting our earlier four-year journey to the Caribbean) to circumnavigate the globe. There was so much to see and explore. Almost every year we found ourselves extending our voyage by yet another year or two.

What now?

All things must come to an end. We have lived our dream and are preparing for new challenges.

Adapting the final lines of David Frost's poem The Road Not Taken:
We took the road less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

The Road Not Taken - by Robert Frost 1916

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
