I moved off Blue Moon in late September. I loved that boat; she carried me on my first overnight sail, my first blue water sail, my first ocean passage, and 10,000 nautical miles. On her, I became a member of a tribe of cruisers I love and admire. It breaks my heart to think I’ll never sail her again, that I’m not a cruiser anymore.
After every Blue Moon, a New Moon rises. I am a 39-year-old financially independent, educated and skilled woman. I can go absolutely anywhere in the world I want, and do absolutely anything I put my mind to. For now I’ve decided to go back to my roots – back to the water. I’m moving to Bonaire to do a scuba diving internship. Everyday, I get to dive in my favorite Caribbean waters.
The glass isn’t just half full. It flows over. Dive ho!
