|Hayden, Jason and Whitney
We have started off our year of cruising and travel with a full set of adventures beginning with a family wedding in Philadelphia. A fantastic reception at the Constitution Center was perfect for a history teaching Groom and a BEAUTIFUL Bride. Jason and Whitney’s wedding was incredible and made us proud to be included. After this capstone event, we returned home to swap the wedding clothes for our ocean sailing gear and begin our trek towards BERMUDA. We will crew on http://LA40.blogspot.com, an Island Packet 40 footer returning to the Chesapeake Bay.

We loaded our bags, digital devices, laptops, iPads, GPS SPOT, sailing harnesses, gloves, night watch caps, fleece, and wind pants, tossed in a few t-Shirts, swimming suits and shorts and we were off. We luckily planned to spend the night at the airport which would allow us a place to park our car for 2 weeks and then not have to deal with the AM traffic rush. What was NOT planned was a car break down in Essington, south of the Airport, where our starter decided to stop working.

So, our year has started off with excitement and adventure and that is what it is all about. This little episode reminded us of our motivational quote…
We think we reacted well to this small curve ball. After all, we didn’t miss the wedding and we didn’t miss our flight!
Tomorrow it will be far, far away as we arrive in Bermuda and meet John and Nancy aboard Larking About!
