Happy Holidays from Footloose

HappyHolidaysBeing a cruiser makes the holidays a little more difficult than you might expect.  We miss getting together with family and friends.  Savoring, that quiet space between the years.   We don’t however miss the zoo of shopping, cards, newsletters, post-office, and UPS.

As a cruiser, the friends you are with change literally with the tide.  Here today and gone tomorrow.  We feel best trying to maintain traditions.   While you can always have a holiday meal at a hotel or restaurant we prefer doing things on the boat… It’s our home.

We decorate with lights, put up ornaments, invite friends to share a meal.

Here’s a funny video from our Thanksgiving dinner.

We are thinking of you and wish you the happiest of holidays surrounded by Peace, Love and Harmony.

    Happy new year, dear friends. So happy to see you living your dream and surrounded by friends. Good to see you keeping up the traditions! We had a nye party last night. Most of the chappy chavurah attended. But we are getting old, at least the rest are! We toasted along with Time Square so they all could go to bed!!!! I was on my own to wish in the new year enjoying the fireworks from SF on tv. Healthy and happy year for us all . Miss you

    A tad* belated, but the sentiment is full: All the best for a happy and healthy new year! It looks like you’re off to a great start!

    *Make that a “huge tad”!

    Thanks for the wonderful stories. They’ve been a nice respit while being sidelined** with the Thomas wildfire and then the ensuing mudslides.

    **Thankfully, only close calls for me (all my belongings in storage came out unscathed < ½ mile from ground zero), so only actually only “slightly sidelined”. Still, I was a bit frozen in time and disbelief while it was all unfolding. On the upside: 101 has reopened, Santa Barbara/Montecito is coming back to life… and so am I! 🙂

    Cheers to a wonderful 2018,
