There’s not much that doesn’t present itself as entertainment on a boat. When the yacht club positions itself at the vortex of a lift bridge and said bridge opens during happy hour. There’s entertainment.
I could admit there are ulterior motives for partaking in bridge opening mania, and I’d be partially right. The crew of Fawkes must leave through this bridge to our next destination, so watching the operations, makes the execution easier.
The reality is we wanted to watch the BIG sailboats go through the little bridge. Are we ever really happy with our lot in life, or do we set our sights on bigger and better? With the Classic Yacht Races in Antigua this month, we aren’t disappointed in bigger and better.
The second reality is, we like our home and in this case we don’t want something bigger and better. Fawkes is what we want and we’re happy.
Do you wish for something else, but realize you’re better off right where you are?
