Hi Tia Enjoying following you and reading all the postings.  Hope the seasickness is gone by now.  sounds like you have had some wind and rough waters.  Hopefully, things will smooth out.  Miss you but glad you are doing what you enjoy; working on the water before heading back to work on land at the next adventure.  Look forward to hearing more.  Love you.
