It's been 6 months since my last post, what have we been up to to?

Our update......
Back in May we sold our home in Massachusetts packed everything up, after some extensive down sizing and headed south via moving truck.  Once everything was moved into storage the house hunt began, SweetPea had already been moved to Barefoot Resort in SC months in advance so we were home.  While some of our boating friends thought we would become true full time cruisers we wanted to put the money from the sale of our home into something a bit more grounded.
We purchased a house in Little River SC in September and after some updating we moved in a month later.

A couple weeks after moving our stuff in, we packed up the Jeep and headed to Austin Tx to visit our daughter, who moved there after we sold the house in Massachusetts.  It was a bit of a loop we spent time in Memphis, Nashville before hitting Austin for a week, on the way back to SC we hit New Orleans for a few days.  While on this road trip we decided that we wanted to feather our nest in SC for the winter, so these snowbirds have gone as far south as they are going this year.
So what's up for us as far as SweetPea and cruising?  All we know for sure is the boat needs to come out of the water before June for an insurance survey and we will have the bottom done and Jim needs to replace at least one of the holding tanks, I am sure other things will come up but for now SweetPea is still at Barefoot and time will tell where we will head from there.  In the meantime Jim has a deck to build and golfing skills to improve.
For those of you who have us on your email contact list our email address has changed you can find it on AGLCA membership list or leave a comment and I will send it to you.  Its always nice to hear what everyone is up to be it by land or sea.
Merry Christmas everyone wherever you find yourself this year and all the best for a happy, healthy and safe New Year!
