Wayne, the pups and I have been making our way up Turkey’s Aegean coast aboard MÖBIUS ever since we departed our winter berth in Finike on May 17th. That first night with just the two of us aboard, anchored in a cove in Kekova, we admitted to each other that it was going to take us some time to shift back into what we call the cruising life. For more than four years, we have both been in boat building mode - completing the boat was the singular purpose of our lives. While there were still many jobs left to do on board, it was time to kick back and relax and enjoy the fruits of all that time and work. What had once been only a dream was now our home.
Condolences. What an adventure for an adventure writer. I laughed, I cried and then I asked, "What could happen next?" I half expected you to leap high to the bowsprit (or some such nautical place) and with a sea-wrench fix that damn launch control. Failing that, perhaps whipping off 2000 words (oops it was almost that, no?) Truly, wishes for good quick healing and thanks for the story and pictures. In the video such a quiet motor, almost like sailing. John Childrey Coral Springs
You are amazing. The yacht is gorgeous, you will heal fast, you have a very supportive gentleman at you service and all this will pass because you are awesome. I am so sorry my June 12th trip didn't work out, I would have loved to see you. Get terrific soon.
Hugs to a fellow stranger in a strange land. Lots of people don't understand. But in spite of difficulties we wanderers are living our dreams outloud and in technicolor. We just aren't picket fence people and need more then rocking chairs on the porch.
Bon voyage soon....
I always love reading about your adventures, so am happy that writing does not require use of both knees. 🙂
So glad you found some quality healthcare. I had an issue with one knee last year, but physical therapy worked to fix it, and while I currently have a fracture on the other knee that’s from a fall (my own darn fault) it appears to be slowly healing, so I am thankful.
Here’s wishing you a full and speedy recovery.
My wife has her 65 ton off shore license. I’m encouraging her to read your books. Will there be a new one soon? Can’t wait!👍👍
So glad you are on the mend and good for you, finding the "best" hospital! My husband has one replacement knee and another that has no meniscus, so I understand how painful boat life is. Good luck with your rehab and thanks for keeping us all posted.
Wishing you a speedy and low-pain return to (hopefully) full knee functionality. 💜
Thanks for the update, video, and photos. Hope the knee recovery goes smoothly. I am in the second Seychelles book and really enjoying it. I did go ahead and get #3 & #4.
I’m so sorry you had to go through this! A torn meniscus is unrelenting! I hope your recovery is swift and you’re back adventuring as planned. All the best, and fair winds!
Hope you are feeling better now. Knees are always a problem and I’ve had a few. We love your novels and have read them all. Looking forward to the next great adventure. Happy cruising! We once had a large sailboat that we thoroughly enjoyed, but each cruise was a multiple bruise cruise.
Great read just now! Please take care of the knee! I just had second replacement in 15 years on right knee. Now three months out having an issue with scar tissue. Need to get scoped and scraped out! Knees are terrible, between both knees have had seven surgeries! Glad your hubby is taking care of you. Enjoy your books living in Fort Lauderdale and worked at courthouse, know the Downtowner well! Retired and now living in the Keys! Get better soon, tight lines and fair winds! Al Greenspan, Tavernier FL
