A Moment in Time

I am at a moment in time defined by what has gone before and what is to come, and they are very different.

We have no children to care for daily, work no longer demands I attend regularly so I looked at my wife one morning over coffee and asked, “Now What?”

It has taken some time to answer that question, but I think we have arrived and this blog is to be part of the what is to come with the accompanying site defining part of how we got here.

The story will develop in two ways:

The Swallows and Amazons books by Arthur Ransome captivated me in my youth and the affinity has only developed. I have my boats located on Lake Murray, South Carolina, the perfect place to plan some S&A adventures with like minded people so if you have any interest please get in touch via the contact page. Like S&A, there are no definitive plans but I am sure there is fun to be had and ideas and opinions to be sought.

The storied history of the boats provides the backstory to the whole adventure so may prove an interesting read for some, at least it gives me something to do when I cannot be at the lake.
