the adventures of a girl, her dog, and two cats.

A stranger came up to me at a party,

Q: "are you the mermaid?"

I looked at him quizzically. Then it clicked,

A: "oh, yes; of course I am."

Who am I? A liveaboard. A camper. A marathoner and trail ultramarathoner. A "mom" to two cats and a dog. A barefoot mermaid. Full of contradictions. Brimming with laughter, and sometimes with tears. A cook and baker. A lover of nature. A philosopher and poet. An adventurer and explorer.

I am all these things and more; we are all such multifaceted creatures. I have many fears, but refuse to let them stand in the way of experiencing life to its fullest while I am able. If I fall down the rabbit hole, there will be a hookah-smoking caterpillar waiting for me on the other side.

I moved aboard 2 October 2012. This blog begins two months prior, documenting my boat shopping experience and the changes to my plans and my perspective along the way. We shall see where it leads. It is simply a log of the adventures of this girl, with her two cats and a dog. Running. Baking. Boating. Moving ashore. Van life. The soap opera of her heartbreaks, successes, and failures. Pour yourself a drink or a cup of tea, and join us here and there along the way.
