Memories…

I rarely spend a weekend in the city anymore.  Unfortunately this weekend was one that I had to be in the office to finish off some urgent work.  By midday I needed a break and took a walk down along the river to where I lived on the Westsail for a while.  It’s interesting to see some new boats visiting from overseas but also many of the same boats which haven’t moved for years. 

  

Thankfully I didn’t end up being there long term.  It reminds me of the quote by John A. Shedd:

“A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.”

This is your life…

On Friday I made some long overdue changes at work which should begin to take effect within the next month.  The fact that it took me almost 5 months to have the time to take the little Compac for a sail, reinforced the basis for that decision.  Then this morning I came across this.
