Happy new year, Gone Floatabout readers!
Like last year, I’ve put together a little “year in review”, with some of the highlights (or not so high lights) of 2017 aboard Celeste:
Winter was one of the not so high lights…. Living aboard Celeste in Washington State as the Pacific Northwest saw one of its coldest winters in years:
And I managed to get caught in an avalanche when we went to Switzerland for Seth’s PhD defense. I was very lucky not to be buried… and to be only moderately injured. I did enjoy some great skiing before my avalanche, but it’s debatable whether or not it was worth it…
And Seth successfully became Dr Leonard:
Summer arrived on our Gulf of Alaska crossing: for me, there’s nothing better than long summer days spent in beautiful Alaska.
Fall descended sooner than I expected while were still up on the outer coast of the Gulf of Alaska:
So far, with Celeste in Southern California, it looks like Winter this year will be the first time since our circumnavigation that it won’t really feel like winter.
Sending all my readers best wishes for a happy and healthy 2018!
