"A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for."

John A. Shedd from “Salt from my Attic”

Inspirational quote for your week!

19 more days until we leave for the US!  Here is an event I can’t wait to attend!  Hopefully we will be able to find a boat to crew on once we get to Miami.  :)

These guys are hard core!

The Vendee Globe is a round-the-world single-handed yacht race, sailed non-stop and without assistance.

There are some really fantastic images from Alex’s training sessions.

I am so excited about our move back to the States.  We have been overseas now for 9 years, and a lot has changed in that time!  
My previous take on American beer was that it tastes horrible and is watered down.  Having a Sam Adams was a real treat.  But NOW, I see there are so many new small breweries on the scene and people are embracing this new beer culture!
Here is one I can’t wait to try.  21 days and counting!
