We’re still here. This is our final week. The anxiety of the finish line has faded away for us and we’re remembering that as soon as we are done with this we will miss it. We are considering selling the boat in a few hours and even that is making us pre-nastalgic. We met a man in Quincy, IL who had done some boating when he was younger (he is in his 70’s) and he informed us that this is the kind of trip we will always remember and when we get older it will be the story we can’t stop telling. I’m sure anecdotes and foibles will work their way into my conversations for a while.
As for the comments about getting jobs… know anyone who needs workers out in California? Just about anything will do. The more interesting it is, the less I need in the way of compensation.
Oh yeah, and the dolphins later told me that they don’t like Beethoven very much, preferring the levity of the later Baroque period.
