By the middle of August, after a couple weeks of traveling, I found myself in Washington DC at the home of my cousin Heather and her husband Phillip. It had been an obscenely long time since we’d seen one another, thanks to internet’s ruse in keeping people well-connected. But there we sat, finally, with daiquiris in hand and bellies full of sushi.
Heather and Phillip are in the process of purging their worldly possessions as they prepare to move onto a 40-foot sailboat and set out for a sail around the world. I was fortunate to arrive just in time for a final sail on their previous vessel before handing the keys over to its new owner. We spent an exquisite Saturday cruising around Chesapeake Bay before nestling in to a small cove for cold beer, chips & salsa, leftover birthday cake and naps on the stern in the late afternoon sun.
The only downside is that now I’m researching sailing schools. A sailboat is much smaller than my Korean apartment. And I really don’t need any more hobbies.
To mark the 1000th comment on Little Miss Twig, and as a thank you for your continued reading, I’m giving away a print a day this week. Just leave a comment on any post tagged giveaway, and I’ll pick a random number for each day’s prize.
Winners will be announced next Monday.
