Adventure

Back in Service

We got in late last night from our sailing adventure. We had an amazing time. The trip did have a few snags but nothing overwhelming. We had intended on posting from the sailboat last Sunday but really only had connectivity yesterday. We’ve got quite a bit to tell you about sailing and the current state […]

Sailing and Studying

Study. Study. Study.  I will openly admit that my academic life was not a stellar one. I, like most of us, look back at my school career and think “Yeah, I could have done better.” I wasn’t much for studying. I just never felt like focusing on school on my own time. I was far […]

A Ducky Tour

A Ducky Tour
