Wow.  Almost a full year since our last post on this blog.  We are completely assimilated back into the real world now with car payments, cell phones, business lunches, and limited vacation time.  Weekly lottery tickets give me hope that maybe, just maybe, we can give it all up and head back out there but I know in the back of my mind that it will be a while.  At least business is great.  We stay too busy to follow other blogs and see what we’re missing so out of sight, out of mind as they say.  In the meanwhile, here’s a few more photos for the world to see (though they are probably more for me than anyone else at this point)!

Still one of our favorite places on Earth! One Foot Island in the Aitutaki Lagoon. Still one of our favorite places on Earth! One of the very few salvaged from a faulty memory card during our time in Paris :-(

Over a year back from our journey I routinely peek back into the photo archives to relive our adventures.  Business is crazy.  Margie closed her first real estate deal and is hungry for more.  My business has taken off in ways I never imagined.  In less than three months we get married here at her parents house in Greensboro, GA so I thought a tribute post to the girl I love was totally necessary.  Due to her new website, she’s known in these parts as “Marge at Large.”  In the photos below she is truly at large.  I am a lucky, lucky man.

We’ve finally settled into life in the States after a year ashore. I actually bought a car last week…my first in years. My grandmother passed away a while back so I’ve been driving her old 1991 Chrysler New Yorker with the plush seats and vinyl top. Hell, it only has 54,000 miles on it so why not? But alas, my new party rental business, Goodwin Event Rentals, needed a truck so off I went to the Ford dealership. Margie is fully involved in real estate here in Lake Oconee, Ga where we live.  I spend a couple of hours every week secretly searching for a new boat although my money is going into the new company and I know it’s not a possibility for a couple of years.  The idea of it keeps me sane at least.  Here’s another edition of greatest hit photos from 4 years of sailing and traveling the world!
