Since I spend part of my day on the road, my mind wanders from the tiring chatter of political radio talk that never ends (and focusing on driving) to daydreaming about sailing and escapism. I suspect most everyone has dreams or plans for retirement, but some are probably a bit more realistic than mine?
I’ve been plotting and planning toward the elusive dream of sailing the south seas, circumnavigating the world or just holing up in the Caribbean aboard a sailboat since I was in high school. That said, having owned a couple cruising sailboat in the past, I know the ‘dreaming’ can often be more soothing than the actual ownership … with constant maintenance and never ending expenses. Nevertheless, it doesn’t stop me from being distraction when I see excellent marketing of a beautiful boat (video and still photos below) . Lady Diane would be nice to retire aboard, but challenging to manage short-handed.
