The house has sold. We closed today. We are one house closer to the dream of living in Annapolis in the summer and spending winters on the PDQ. Only one house to go...

We did pretty good on the house considering the market. It was a great place for the kids to grow up. Fishing, swimming, tennis, basketball, and a playground all within a few hundred yards.

Now we just have to cram 3 houses and 2 boats worth of stuff into 2 houses and 1 boat, with only a year or so to sell another house.

We're Married!

We did it! Barefoot on the beach, on a beautiful summer day with 67 family and friends watching. It was a great event; fun, casual, and light hearted. The Justice of the Peace spoke little English and every couple of paragraphs had a pause for the translator. Of course, we each said 'Ce'.

The reception was a hundred feet from the beach in an outdoor pavilion called the Steak House. The resort was grand, and the entire event (and week) could not have gone better.

The honeymoon has yet to happen though. We had planned to sail north upon our return, but came home to a sick cat, and a contract on the old house in Herndon. We are looking to escape in early August.
