I hope everyone is doing as well as possible with the COVID19 pandemic. We are staying healthy and haven’t come down with the virus that we know. I continue to work weekends at Hospice of the Western Reserve practicing appropriate precautions and have the PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) that I need. We take it very seriously protecting our patients, families, and employees. Phil has built a wood shop in 2019, so helps keeps him busy with that along with sailing on Lake Erie this past summer.
Changes has been for sail for a few years, and the right buyer was found this summer. The bill of sale has been signed and the money transfer a few weeks ago and Phil is glad that Changes is going to a man that loves her and who has the skills and money to take care of her. As a bonus, is the cousin of my niece’s husband.
We have decided not to buy a boat at this time, but we’re not completely out of sailing. Fortunately, we have long time friends that have a 37’ Tartan, SV Solitaire who is willing to share her with us as Ted needs help with her and he also wants to be able to go out sailing more. This will help both of us to have more sailing next year? Will we go cruising again? Maybe, as Ted is interested in going to the Bahamas. We will see what life brings us as the winter and next summer progresses. Solitaire needs to have a few things added to her to make it easier to cruise on her, which both Phil and Ted can work on together.
With the pandemic and us celebrating out 15th anniversary this year, we bought a large pop up camper and went camping for our anniversary for 10 days. We also enjoyed camping on a weekend with family mid September and hope to do more camping next spring/summer.
We haven’t sold our Valiant 40 Tamure; but, we have given her to our son Spencer and he is going to take her south to the Caribbean this winter

Sounds great to go again and it’s a wonderful boat. Glad that Tamure is getting used by another generation! Hope you, Kitty and your family are staying safe and healthy!

We remember all the help you gave us fixing our cracked head. We’d love to look you up if we ever get to Nfld. Send your contact info to email@example.com. Maybe once the borders open up after this pandemic is over we can drive up taking ferries. Sounds like a wonderful adventure!
