Frances is Five
By Windy & Michael

We hatched our 5-year plan to go cruising in 2006, just a few weeks after she was born.
She's never been aboard our boat. Except at the recent boat show, she's never been aboard a sailboat.

Yet Frances has never known her family not planning to live aboard a boat. This is her picture: "Home Sweet Home."

I love the companionway steps, and the keel-stepped mast. Her dad, the vegetarian, is eating, "a chicken leg!" And that brown pupa-looking thing, "it's food!"


  1. Wow, what a lovely drawing of home! I guess she's looking forward to her new life.

  2. Happy birthday Frances! Leah said: "I love their boat's blue sails!"
