Although we knew this would be a very different Christmas for us away from family, friends, and familiar surroundings, we had expected that any longings for those would be more than offset by Ariose having carried us to a palm-fringed beach to celebrate the holidays.
Well, with our (mis)adventures and delays, we’re not where we hoped to be. We are, though, just over the South Carolina border and are enjoying temperatures that permitted our 1st breakfast-in-the-cockpit on this Christmas Eve morning. We do miss being with loved ones, but are ever so grateful for all that we have and for the people in our lives (and for what lies ahead!).
So, with this Ariose Note, we would like to wish you and your loved ones season’s greetings and may 2017 bring you fair winds & kind seas.
