Souls on board

Dear loyal readers,

I’ve no doubt that these regular blog updates help wonders to ease the mind and soul of friends and relatives with loved ones aboard ship. So y’all will be glad to hear that everyone aboard is safe, happy, and healthy! I must admit though, I was hoping to give a little scare in this blog post.

In truth the Bermuda Triangle has really not been all it’s cracked up to be. Sure, we entered the Triangle weeks ago and have yet to find our way out, but aside from midnight-snack-brownies and my oceanography homework nothing has miraculously disappeared! Naturally, our compass and GPS have been a little wonky since we crossed south of Bermuda, but that has allowed us all to get a lot of practice in with celestial navigation.

No, all in all the Bermuda Triangle is not half as bad as the legends make it seem. And once we find our way out, we’ll be able to give an E.T.A. for Key West (Shoot! that was a poor choice of words… Forget I said that. We are actually keeping a very close eye on Hurricane Eta, trust me. Everything is under control – Jeez am I digging myself a hole, I better just stop talking)

Great to hear from you Elijah. We had no doubt you were all safe and you were living your best Covid Free life! Following the SEA Currents: SSV Corwith Cramer blog has given my “safer-at-home” brain much needed entertainment and stimulation. Momaseeker and Pa.

Is this the same Elijah we lost to the seas a few moons ago? Have you been listening to Sturgill Simpson’s “A Sailor’s Guide To Earth”? Please take a shower before boarding your flight home.
