The Final Blog: Number 476

I’ve run out of steam. I’ve kept this blog going for well over five years now. It was in August of 2012, just after we purchased our sailing catamaran, Beatitude, that the first post was penned. This is the 476th. We’ve sailed ten thousand miles and driven three thousand in Beatitude II, our 5th wheel RV. The season for blogging has ended, at least for now. The hours needed to prepare and publish each new post have become drudgery. I can use that time more productively and more enjoyably. We will continue to share our adventures over our Facebook pages. You’ll be able to follow our adventures in a more real-time manner since we can post the photos more quickly and easily. I hope you’ll continue to keep us company as we head to all the great national parks out west over the next year or two. We’ll also have plenty of other adventures to share squeezed into those epic experiences.

Our motto has been “Traveling this orb with a sense of awe and wonder which is grounded in the reality of a world full of meaning, beauty, and goodness.” This we have done and will continue to do. In the unlikely occurrence that you are a reader of this blog and not a Facebook friend, I hope you’ll befriend Cindy, I, or SV Beatitude.

There are still a few adventures to share since we’ve returned to Georgia from Wisconsin over a week ago. I’ll be posting those photos on Facebook soon. The last few photos on our blog are from our walk today on the Big Creek Greenway, not far from our RV park. The Autumn colors have made their way southward with us to North Georgia.
