There are worse places to get stranded

Today we were told: “Everything on your boat is broken, you just don’t know it yet”. Thanks Pam for letting us know :-). Today we had a beautiful morning with a bike ride to the lighthouse at Cape May. After Jolanda went shopping and I had a nice coffee in town. Then we went grocery shopping with the bikes the marina gave us for free:

During our visit in town we found out there is a famous Christmas parade tonight so we went home to warm up and booked a taxi for the evening to see the parade.

Jolanda realized today that the layout of the boat is perfect for us. She was initially concerned that she does not have enough outside space in the Summer. The heating works extremely well too and it is very cosy. We are loving our Sky’s The Limit every day more despite the challenges.

I have to go back to the city tomorrow as I have important meetings beginning of the week. Jolanda might stay on the boat. The next plan is that the new starter will be installed early Tuesday morning and captain Troy will come down on Monday night. Jolanda and Troy want to start Tuesday to go up North, they either make it in one go, or one stopover at Atlantic City. Tomorrow we will check the forecast again if that plan is reasonable.

      Dear Robyn,

      Love, love, love your words – thanks for your amazing encouragement. Hopefully we can have you over very soon!

  2. Oh, so happy for you two on a number of fronts!! First, that despite the challenges, you are loving your girl! Second, you are truly experiencing Cape May! The Point is our happy place, as we rented houses there nearly every summer when the boys were growing up. It’s so peaceful there! And, Cape May at Christmas is truly the best. Now, if you want a treat before you leave, have dinner at either The Ebbit Room, Peter Shields or The Washington Inn. Also, if you can, check out Beach Plum Farm today. They are the farm for Cape Resorts, who own numerous properties and restaurant around town, and supply them with their produce, eggs, and more. They have a store and also serve food, which is very casual (picnic tables) and delicious. It’s down near the point. Have fun, and good luck!! XOXO, Nancy
