WE DID IT!
We arrived in Portland, ME with the sunrise this morning after an ideal 1400 nautical mile passage. By lunchtime, we will be with our parents again for the first time in 3 years.
Convivia had one last treat for us. As we entered the inner harbor, the fuel filter clogged, leaving us engineless in the shipping lane. A little quick thinking, and diesel soaked hands later and we were back in business.
Our final destination on this six year long adventure is still Round Pond, and we expect to arrive there on the first day of July (Vick’s special, birthday month request). It’s impossible to articulate what this landfall means to us… perhaps with time I will find the words.
Portland Flatbread Co., here we come!
All is sure enough well.
