Moving Day

Landlubbers plan for weeks, maybe even months, when they move. We got notice that afternoon. "Your new slip is (FINALLY) ready!" We unplugged, untied, and zipped on over to our new spot.

It's only down to the end of the dock, but OH what a difference. Rather than opening out on to a cluttered dock, we open out in to the water. It feels a lot more like being at anchor. We can see everyone coming and going in the creek. We rock back and forth a lot more. It's a lot more private (in other words, I can keep the curtains open when I am walking around partially dressed). Even though it's only a difference of about 10 slips down, it's like getting a fresh start. It's funny how a littlest change in perspective can give you a whole new outlook. This is the beauty of living on a boat. You can change your scenery while still snug in the comforts of home.

Zach was as giddy as if we'd moved to a new state. He sat like this for an HOUR, just staring.
"Mama, it's much beautifuller here than our old spot. I like having a water yard."

Me too baby.

we have an outside slip too, after being on the list for 2 years. we moved from our winter slip (as far in as we could get) to our summer slip (as far out as we could go) on April 14th. Ahhhhhhhhh, it is so wonderful.

A "water yard", too cute, and great photo! I wish we could pack up and move so easily for a change of scenery. and how impressed I am that you produced a show for HGTV, I can't even begin to imagine how one comes to do that.

Congrats!!! I know the feeling. We're waiting for an opening at the end of our dock too!

Very jealous that your move was done in such a quick manner.Wish our move could be like that! Love Zach's comment about having a water yard. Enjoy your new spot.

Our six year old is dying to do a sleep over as well. We're planning to ease into it with some evening PJ play dates that include dessert or snack after dinner, some games and play time but going home for actual sleeping time. I'm with you on the change of scenery... sometimes it's just what we need!
