We’ve moved onto the boat!

This past weekend, we took an important step: we moved out of our house and onto the boat! We kept one very small bedroom of our apartment, into which we put all of our furniture and things that won’t be setting sail with us. We took 4 days (Friday – Monday) to pack up, thoroughly clean, and move. It was enough time that although busy, we never felt rushed or overwhelmed by the work.

20070807 Move to Boat

Emotionally, it was hard to leave 68 Douglass, because it has been such a great place to live! It was almost exactly 3 years ago that we initially moved to Douglass, and those have been 3 fantastic years! We will miss our comfortable home, the neighborhood, and having great friends living right upstairs.

We also said (temporary) goodbyes to Komodio (our lizard, a bearded dragon), and Flame and Spot (our goldfish). Komodio will be living with Sequoia’s good friends the Herbertsons in Ukiah, while the fish will live with Kelly and Zai on 16th St in SF.

Although it is probably one of the easier challenges we’ll face, moving to the boat seemed like a big hurdle. Now that we’re here and getting settled, the trip seems so much more real, and immediate. We have two months to finish our preparations.
