its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Looking Back at 2018

“Sometimes it is the people no one can imagine anything of who do the things no one can imagine.” –Alan Turing

In January we decided to get away from our cold wet winter in Texas. We headed to Costa Rica for ten days of relaxation and adventure. 
February was all about family. Kyle and his family came for a visit and we spent every minute we could with Eric and his family.
In March we finally had time to get Texas Pearl hauled. We spent the month fixing the damages we received during Hurricane Harvey.
April was our last month in Texas, so we spent a lot of time with our grand daughters, family and friends before we headed back to New York.
In May we finished getting The Pearl ready for the summer season, reconnecting with old friends and having fun with our family in Pennsylvania.
In June we cruised west on the Erie Canal and had our grandson aboard for a visit...so many wonderful days. 
In July, Kyle and his family spent a week at the lake with us, lots of fun activities kept us busy. By the middle of the month we were back in Texas saying good-bye to my Daddy.
We spent most of August in the Thousand Islands, meeting new friends and catching up with some old ones.
By September things were beginning to slow down in Ithaca. Graham came and stayed again and we took a car trip to Quebéc City.
October and fall were here before we knew it and we said good-by to Ithaca, The Pearl and our family in Pennsylvania. 
We spent November catching up with our Texas family and friends and settling back aboard Texas Pearl. We also worked on lots of home and boat projects.
December was all about getting ready for Christmas, a little get away to Austin and having more fun with family and friends.
