I like what Mark Twain said, “ Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that You didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor”. Cruising does that for me. They ask for volunteers, I raise my hand and wave it like crazy. Positive side I have won some nice prizes. Bottles wine, t-shirts, and other nice things. Negative I won’t see these people again ever. Thanks for raising my spirits and thinking about what I like to do. Keep up good work. I like your articles.
I love that one too Russell!! I know cruising is a big enjoyment and I’m so happy we have this in our lives. It will be back in a few months and I have no doubt it will be better than ever! Thanks for reading and commenting Russell!
