We are both
30 40 something professionals unemployed former professionals who have become disenfranchised with the idea of defining ourselves by our jobs. Being typical “Type A” personalities, most of our adult life has been spent dedicated to our careers. I am a geologist that works worked in the consulting industry cleaning up petroleum and chemical spills. My Bride is was an accountant that has mostly worked in either public accounting or the real estate world. But as I said, we are now disenfranchised with the idea of defining ourselves by our jobs so that will be the last I write about them. Instead we are trying to fill our lives with experiences and fun.
We purchased our first boat, Splash (1980 C&C 24) in 2007 from my aunt and uncle who had owned her since 1984. Splash was a great boat to get me back into sailing and introduce this beautiful mode of transportation to my Bride. In 2010, we sold Splash and upgraded to Smitty.
We have kept both of our boats at the Hingham Ship Yard and have made many boating friends on L-Dock. We have friends that are sailboaters and powerboaters and have had really great times in large raft ups at World’s End, at our dock parties and local cruises to places like Salem and Gloucester.
We left Hingham in September of 2015. We are now actively out cruising in the Caribbean somewhere. Hopefully we are getting blog posts up about our adventures but who knows what the internet is like where ever we are.
