Oil change day on Felicità. 🔹 The north winds finally calmed down so we have a three day window to change the oil, replace a broken hatch, change out our jib furling running rigging, and top off our provisions (aka, wine supply). 🔹 We’re hoping to head out Monday and get positioned to cross the Sea of Cortez from Muertos right behind the next Norther that blows through. 🔹 #sailing #boatprojects #oilchange #yanmar #liveabaord
The Universe will take care of you if you let it. 🔹 It most certainly did for me when it put Hillary aboard Felicità for the days leading up to and after losing my dad. 🔹 We laughed, we cried, celebrated each sunset, swam with whale sharks, played guitar and sang beautiful(ish) harmonies, hiked, she kicked our butts in every game we played, we ate beautiful food, and toasted friendship, laughter, and Captain Steve. 🔹 We set our anchor in seven different anchorages and covered 140 nautical miles round trip. We saw whales, rays, sea lions, all kinds of seabirds, and dolphins.🔹 Shipmates don’t get much better and we miss her already. ♥️ #sailing #catalina42 #liveaboard
Virtual memorial for Steve Buzan on Friday, January 27 at 4pm ET/3pm CT/2pm MT/1pm PT 🔹 Friends and family are invited to attend to celebrate our Dad. 🔹 Zoom link details will be posted on our Facebook pages a few days prior to the service. 🔹 Details will also be in his obituary on the Darrell Howe Mortuary website in Lafayette, CO

I’m touched to the very center of my being by all the texts, calls, emails, and posts. 🔹 I feel your love and support and it makes the loss of the first man I ever loved just a little bit more bearable. 🔹Just dropping in to say I’m hanging in there. In large part due to the fact that Tim, my favorite shipmate and Chief Humor Officer aboard Felicità, is here to ply me with jokes and wine. 🔹 He was the last person to sail with dad on the Chesapeake which makes my heart swell. 🔹 And, also on the scene is my ride or die, Hillary, who is not light in the humor department herself. 🔹 My dad LOVED Hillary and she joined us on several sailing adventures. Also, fun fact… the winter after he retired, he was spending six weeks at my house in Evanston, IL and he painted her living room and dining room. Any friend of mine was a daughter of his. 😍 🔹 Another fun fact is that this song was my ringtone for dad. It is crushing to know he’ll never be on the other end of the line again.🔹 But onward we march. Stephanie and I are planning a virtual memorial… details to come. 🔹 Thank you so much for your kind words, shared memories of my dad, and all around love. 🔹 Your light is pouring in… ♥️
Day is done…
