Remembering back, oh many years ago now, our son had a classmate whose parents were going to take him out of school and sail around the world. At the time, I thought that those people had lost their minds and I wondered if it was even legal. There had to be some rule against that. There must be some law against just kidnapping your own children, shanghai yourself some wee deckhands, hoist a few bedsheets and off to the horizon you go. Blimey mate, they must have completely been off their rocker. Yet somewhere in the deep recesses of my own thoughts, was a wiggling notion of how cool (is that dating myself?) it would be to just scurry myself aboard a craggy old windskiffer, hoist the main sheets, and let the wind carry me away. Being a fan of author Patrick O’Brien, the whole notion was deeply entertaining yet so far off the weather gauge from my reality that it quickly bobbed over the horizon and was gone like a green flash and a wink of an eye.
Hello from the Landers Family! We enjoy exploring diverse and culturally rich places, experiencing and learning about them. We plan to share these experiences with you through photographs, videos, and stories from our travels. There's a new adventure taking shape for us in the near future- soon we hope to experience smooth sailing to distant horizons.
