|Sunset from our classroom|
For example, we watched the most beautiful sunset last night for well over 30 minutes. When do you every watch a full sunset while you are working? We enjoyed a glass of wine in the cockpit as Radeen and I talked at length about our great summer sail to Maine. It is hard to make quality time to truly talk with your spouse and reflect while you both are busy working. We enjoyed the sea birds that were blown inland 50+ miles from the hurricane. They seemed lost, looking for the ocean beaches. It can be difficult to make time to watch birds while working.Why? Because you are too busy, too rushed, with no time for these little things in life. Now we do have time and we are taking the time to enjoy these simple treasures. So as we truly begin our new adventure, we close one chapter of life today and look forward to the cruising life aboard Island Spirit. What a great way to end a summer....life aboard is a dream and we know we are so fortunate!
Here are some photos to demonstrate the peacefulness....
|One of my new students...look at how well he can focus and pay attention!|
|This student I can tell will be trouble...notice the look... the attitude...oh, boy!|
|Is this bad boy paying attention? Not really....I know how to read my students!|
|Reflections on your past, present, and future dreams is a worthwhile activity.|
Take time to reflect and plan!
|Our current classroom, notice the open feeling of this room....ahhhh.|
|This is a September sunset, I have watched this for 20 years.|
I used to be sad when the sun reached this SW position,
now....it is time to prepare for points south and the BAHAMAS!
|There it goes...sunset on our teaching careers....|
New adventures begin NOW!
|Home Sweet Home|
|Hayden, learning everyday....|
|Radeen...who loves to sail....and live on the our boat....|
