Well, we are still here, working away the summer. So far it has been too much work and too little play. Even what seems like an exciting job, like working on a pirate ship, gets old when you do it a lot. And the pirate ship has more drama going on behind the scenes than a reality tv show, and that is getting old too.
Our plans to go traveling this winter in our boat are feeling intangible and far away at the moment. Our efforts to put away a bunch of cash is progressing more slowly than we had hoped.
But even though I may be feeling burnt out from working 6-7 days a week at two jobs, Capt K finally has a new exciting job that he is enjoying a lot. And how could he not? He gets to take a fun sporty boat out in search of dolphin and wildlife sightings! How cool of a job is that? He is working for an ecotour company that takes small groups out on sightseeing expeditions in the waters around St. Augustine. He truly is Capt K now!
In other news, we have been housesitting for the last week and have been thouroughly spoiled by having a/c, a huge bathroom, and wonderful things like floors and countertops. It has been a nice break from the boat, almost too nice. Although we love our boat, we are a bit sick of living on it right now. We might need a longer break than a week….but even though the idea of renting a studio apartment is appealing, it would slow down our money saving plan even more.
So it goes. We are cruisers in the drudgery of waiting to go cruising.
