The End of an Era

We christened our Westsail 32 ‘Rode Trip’ on 23 June 2012 and among family and friends stepped aboard our new home. Our dream had become a reality. We set sail for anywhere, everywhere, somewhere…we’d figure it out!

It has been 812 days since we shared champagne with Neptune and started our new lifestyle at sea. The day Rode Trip was hauled from the water marked the end of an era for us.

Thanks, a BIG THANKS, to our parents, to Grandma G., and to Aunt Margaret and Uncle Barry for helping us to move off of Rode Trip. Many hands made light work and the use of vehicles was much appreciated to move our personal belongings from Deltaville, VA back to our storage corner of Grandma’s basement in Honesdale, PA. Throughout the transition, our family made sure we had plenty to eat and comfortable places to sleep.

Rode Trip underwent a mini-makeover at the yard. She’s looking so good I might buy her myself (I’m sure Brian and Bruce can handle the new boat). Rode Trip is ready for a new captain and more adventures!
