“A beginning is the time for taking the most delicate care that the balances are correct.”
– Frank Herbert, Dune series
This morning we are off. Heading out of the Derwent River, with no intention of returning. In many ways we “went” when we left the marina 2 weeks ago for Bellerive, but many people have continued to say, “When are you going?”
Today… This morning, in an hour or less.
The photo above was taken just a little while ago, the dawn breaking over the marina.
The boat tied up next to us is “Sorcerer”, a S&S 37. Her crew have been dear friends to ERIK and it was nice to snuggled up alongside one last time. They intend to head off cruising in Feb 2012, so I’d like to think that we’ll see them in a bay somewhere.
