Down the coast

These are pictures from the 3 day boat delivery we made down the eastern US coast from Connecticut to Delaware.  It took us 3 solid days of sailing, some queasiness, some exhilaration, some fear and lots of frozen fingers and toes.  Overall it was amazing to experience sailing down the coast, to feel the wind take the 57 foot Nautor Swan and lift it just slightly further out of the water and propel it forward, getting pushed along by the big rollers along the eastern seaboard.

Now that the boat is in Delaware, we can start moving our belongings onto it for what promises to be a really interesting summer.  Getting used to having less stuff, fixing up a home that's 'ours' and discovering a whole new set of challenges.
