that old sweet familiar song of the sea

321 days and counting and it can't come soon enough. The summer is going too fast and I have yet to be out on the water with Josh, so I'm feeling pretty blue.  So far Josh has taught 2 classes (one of which is in progress) and is hoping to complete at least another one before the season is out. The classes meet 2 consecutive Saturdays and Sundays for 5 hours each day. Let me tell you, he is loving every minute of it. I think I'm probably going to play "sick" one day before too long so we can spend a week day out on the lake, as getting a boat on the weekend can be a challenge--and let's face it, my weekends aren't exactly free as of late. 
On another front, we are heading out to Virginia Beach next month to see some friends and to look at some boats in Hampton Roads and Beaufort, North Carolina. Secretly I'm hoping we'll fall in love with a boat that is within our price range on this trip and we'll say "Screw this, we're outta here." long before the next year has passed. Let's just say, I'm anxious to hear that old familiar song of the sea lapping at the sides of the boat.
