Once we were anchored we had our first swim in the Pacific Ocean. It felt great. As I look around at the other boats in the anchorage and see them all rigged out for the crossing it is blatantly clear what we are about to embark on. It is close, so close! In a matter of a week or two we will be .....leaving! OMG. Maybe a twinge of that fear that I said had dissipated has returned :-) but I am still super excited. I think it is kind of like that feeling when you are riding a roller coaster and it is click, click, clicking upward to the top and you feel scared and excited all at once and the clicking noise (which would be all the other boats getting ready to go) adds to the intensity of it all. Then you reach the top and 'whooosh' down you go and you throw your hands in the air and you just go with it!
I may not throw my hands in the air but there is no stopping this roller coaster.
