Milestone #2 is achieved — We Move From Land to Sea! Ep. 2

Milestone #2 was met today by us moving out of our house! This was  preceded by many exhausting days of final packing. When did we acquire all  of this stuff? I long for my college days when I could move with one small  car load! Karen had done a great job of packing most of the house and  coordinating with the moving company for our sensitive furniture and  electronics. We were fortunate also that our renter, Margarita, wanted to  use most of our furniture, and that reduced the burden of the move out  tremendously.

This morning we finished up final packing and giving away food in the fridge,  hoping to get out of the house before Margarita showed up, but we ended  up overlapping for an hour. We were all a bit quite and reflective as her  belongings started filling the rooms that we had just emptied and the reality  of our move out started to appear. It will be 13 months before we sleep,  eat and shower in our home!

With our minivan crammed full of more stuff for the boat, we drove away  from home and headed to Portland. Our arrival at Sunset Marina meant time  for many more loads of bins to carry aboard and find room to stow, but it  felt good to have the whole family together in our new home on the water.
