Way back in 2010, as Deb and I were getting ourselves, our family, our house, and our boat ready for the two of us to take off on an extended cruise, we were initially non committal regarding a departure date.
Finally, Deb put her foot down and said “I need a target date”.
Shortly thereafter, she declared that we were leaving on 10/10/10!!
For months we worked towards that date but ultimately we missed it.
By three days…
On 10/13/2010, we passed the Richmond Yacht Club breakwater at 10:13am.
13 has always been a lucky number for us.

Things haven’t changed much since.
