We spent most of December in Socorro visiting family, friends, and our favorite mountains. We continue to love our sailing life, but in September, it became clear that a neck injury I (Holly) had was just not healing on the boat, so we decided that I would spend time on land for a while. I'm staying with my sister, Laurel, in Manchester Ma., about an hour north of Boston. Laurel is a landscape painter and currently preparing for her first solo exhibit in Boston the end of Feb. We rent a carriage house on the ocean shore with a forest behind us. I miss being on the boat with George, but I am surrounded by beauty, laughing a lot with my sister, and healing well. I hope to be back on the boat sometime next spring.
Meanwhile, George has been solo sailing Hannah Brown south. George has busied himself with a variety of boat projects and got a new computer so we can do email and weather faxes on the boat. He plans to continue sailing south for the winter.
