At this point I need to fuse my past with that of my husband. The currents of Francois’ experience on the water run a lot deeper than mine.
he was a frogman in the making
boating was a family affair
As a child he
spent many summers on his parents’ motor yachts
cruising the Thousand
Islands and waterways in and around Montreal
More recently he spent
some time with his brother sailing on Lake Champlain and this is where his passion started
I began to realize too that the trips we have taken together were usually near or on the sea
deep sea fishing off the coast of Nova Scotia
to the Caribbean where we would watch with envy as the other hotel
guests would take out the little Lasers for a day sail
Fisherman’s Cove, Albufeira
our memorable trip to Portugal where the whole three weeks was spent traveling along the shore of the Algarve
our last two days spent at a Pousada in Sagres, overlooking the place where Christopher Columbus began his sailing days.
No doubt I love the water…
no doubt we both love the water…
but do we have the same vision
…the same dream?
