On the Road Again – To the Islands!

Leave a comment Standard


The Two Fools are back on the road – at least temporarily – and on our way to the Caribbean!  Once people heard we were heading out, we had a half-dozen requests to revive the blog.  Wow – we had no idea that people missed us! Thanks!

Brief Hiatus

To catch you up, we had to put the rest of our 2015 travel plans on hold because I had some complications from breast cancer that turned out to be a bit more involved than we thought.  But all was benign, so I am on the mend once again.  I will have a radioactive dye test next month as a check-up and still see my oncologists a few times a year.  I am also still on tamoxifen for 4 more years.  At Year 5, apparently they can declare you as “cured,” so I am still considered to be undergoing treatment.  But I am feeling much better and things look good.

I am also ramping back up at work.  I still have the flexibility to work remotely, so I have a lovely home office in Annapolis overlooking the water – which means that I can work even when it snows (not sure if that’s good or bad!).   I go into the DC office for meetings when I need to – and even had my first work trip since breast cancer last week.  So we are happy to be settling back into a “new” normal.  But – we have been itching to get back on the road so have a few trips planned, too – more on that in a future blog.


Onward to the Islands

For this trip, Frank and I will be renting a 38-foot sailboat for a week in the British Virgin Islands. Once again, we are the captain and crew.  We saw a last-minute deal on New Year’s Eve and decided to go for it.  We love to sail – and we are super happy to be going to warmer weather.  We’ve both done this trip before, but this is the first time together and the first time with just 2 on the boat. (My last time here was 10 years ago on a boat with 8 girls!)  I’m sure it will be an adventure.

And  . . .  we will celebrate our one-year wedding anniversary while we are here.  So stay tuned as we set sail in the BVIs!

P.S. Here’s a preview – we just arrived, and here is our view from the balcony of our pre-boat hotel. No snow here!
