This is us, Julianne & Bill. In April we were in our home town, Anacortes, WA. visiting our children and we bought a boat. We weren’t planning on buying a boat that day, but Epiphany chose us. Bill drove by her on on dry dock, and quickly put the car in reverse to check her out. He came and got me to see “Epiphany” in all her glory. I took a good 3 minute look around and said, “Let’s do it!” We truly had our epiphany at that moment.
“Let’s do it” meant quitting our jobs and sailing down the Pacific Coast to Mexico for starters. We lived in Seattle at the time, and both had jobs in the wine & liquor industry. We were paying $3100 a month for a 2 bedroom apartment on West Lake Union, and were both ready for a life change. We knew we had big task at hand; quitting our jobs, finding live aboard moorage in Seattle, finding the money to buy the boat, learning about our new boat, how to afford our new lifestyle, but most importantly learning how to sail her!
Our goal with this blog is to hopefully inspire others to not wait for the “perfect” time to live their dreams. Because, as you’ll quickly realize if you keep following our posts, if we can do it, anyone can.
