What a ship is …

A favorite quote from a favorite movie is:

“Wherever we want to go, we go. That’s what a ship is, you know. It’s not just a keel and a hull and sails; that’s what a ship needs. Not what a ship is. What (a ship) really is, is freedom.” – Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean

Seemed like a fitting title for our blog.  Looking back, most of the watercraft we’ve owned have been geared toward adventure.  Whether exploring the St. Croix, Minnesota and Mississippi rivers, exploring the far reaches of Lake Superior, or setting off on a 6,000 mile cruise, Peg and I have seldom been content to chill at the dock.  This blog is a humble attempt to share some of our upcoming experiences as we shift gear into retirement.

Our first big voyage is to be The Great Loop.
