At this point I need to fuse my past with that of my husband. The currents of  Francois’  experience on the water run a lot deeper than mine.
 he was a frogman in the making
 boating was a family affair
As a child he spent many summers on his parents’ motor yachts

cruising the Thousand Islands and waterways in and around Montreal

More recently he spent some time with his brother sailing on Lake Champlain and this is where his passion started to grow.

I began to realize too that the trips we have taken together were usually near or on the sea

deep sea fishing off the coast of Nova Scotia

trips to the Caribbean where  we would watch  with envy as the other hotel guests would take out the little Lasers for a day sail


Fisherman’s Cove, Albufeira

our memorable trip to Portugal where the whole three weeks was spent traveling along the shore of the Algarve

our last two days spent at a Pousada in Sagres, overlooking the place where Christopher Columbus began his sailing days.

No doubt I love the water…

no doubt we both love the water…but do we have the same vision…the same dream?
