“Parting is such sweet sorrow” (attribution Juliet and William Shakespeare)

Securing Elizabeth Jean consumes our last two weeks at Paradise Village.  The effort’s intensity almost consumes us as well.  Our cabin reaches 100 degrees and our energy and patience regularly flag.  Leaving Elizabeth Jean behind fills us with a sadness that won’t easily pass.  Yet, as we sit down in the air conditioned cab we feel relief’s cool sweetness.  Fifteen minutes brings us to the airport.  Four hours after lift off, we land at Los Angeles Airport.  Returning so quickly over a distance that took us months to cover gives us the mental equivalent of the bends.

  Our V berth holds two sails and our deck safety gear.  Tin foil, to keep the sun’s ray from entering the cabin darken Elizabeth Jean‘s cabin.

100+ degrees

Our cabin exceeds 100 degrees.
