Bel Sito (Due): A New Chapter

We can barely log into Facebook without learning of the demise or serious illness of friends our age.



If life is like a banquet, we could be in the 'dessert and decaf coffee at the end of the meal' stage.



So, what do we do? Act responsibly? Sit on the balcony in the sunshine and go on short walks around the neighborhood?



Nope. We bought a bigger boat. A much bigger boat. A huge boat (for us).  A 2009, 53' Selene, currently known as Passage. Her former owners kept her in pristine condition and we hope our stewardship is even close to their meticulous standards. Our other trawler was a 38' Pacific Seacraft and adding feet to a boat is a bit like dog years. Each foot seems to expand the storage and capacity exponentially.



Now, if we could just figure out how to start the engines. I'm not kidding.



Introducing: Bel Sito, Due (pronounced dew-A, meaning 'two' in Italian). We're going to drop the 'due' as soon as our original Bel Sito takes on a new name.

Julie and Richard,

So very nice and hospitable for you to invite us onto your gorgeous new trawler while you were moored in Annapolis Harbor! We had great fun talking with you and hope to see you in a Chesapeake tributary again sometime this summer.

We sent you a picture Steve took of Bel Situ, Due.

Cindy and Steve

P.S. Steve promises to watch his steps more closely while holding a glass of Scotch!
