The Launch . . .

The Great Circumnavigation Adventure! 

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."
- Howard Thurman
After all the planning, after all the conversations, after all the good-byes the only thing left to do was to shove off. And so we did. Into the bright sun and the clear, calm waters off Scammon Point. 

Our plan was to navigate counterclockwise around the Island, stopping as the urge or need arose. Hoping to make our planned campsites along the way while there was still enough natural light to pitch a tent, cook a meal and enjoy the sunset. 

They say adventure is nothing more than bad planning, and even though I had carefully plotted and laid out our intended itinerary great weather and bad planning lead to adventures we had never expected and thoroughly enjoyed! 

It all started when I realized I had attached my map to the deck bag UPSIDE DOWN!
