|What a wonderful retirement party! Many people played|
a part in preparing this fun event for Dennis.
|Mary Catherine pulled out all of the stops on this one!|
We received a set of towels embroidered with Trillium on them. They are the best! Absorbent and quick drying. I think I need to commission Elaine to make a few more! Even though they are a type of microfiber, they act like chamois cloth. I love them. Dennis also received several good books and if he gets into the series, we can download them onto his Kindle. Neither of us have made time to read at home, so we are hoping to do more on the long passages and at peaceful anchorages! We also brought along the wines and champagne and other gifts so we can toast our friends as we enjoy them.
|Loretta showed up with the map and "Where in the|
World is Dennis" looking like Waldo! What fun!!!
Loretta joined us in the Caribbean for a week of sailing. It was fun having someone from home come along. We invited others to join us somewhere in the world. No other takers yet - only a couple of our kids: Heather and Addison joined us in the Caribbean and Nick will sail with us from Las Perlas, Panama to the Galapagos where is girlfriend, Daphne, will join us.
|The World ARC Itinerary was a popular discussion.|
He recently started smiling and one of the crew asked him why. He replied: "I am not going back! I don't have to go back this time." I think the time is right for him!
|I love this painting of S/V Trillium! What a talented|
young man who painted it for us is. Sorry we
never got to meet him and thank him in person
|The perfect message as we leave |
Plunkett Cooney after 43 years and
follow our dream.
