“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
For years this abandoned, forlorn sailboat has been our landmark. It was anchored just outside the Henley Canal that leads into San Carlos Bay on Pine Island Sound. After a day of fishing, swimming, boating, we were always greeted by this old friend, our anchored landmark, marking the canal we enter to get back home.
One day we discovered it was simply gone.
I would like to think that the owner had many adventures while sailing near and far. I would like to think that he explored, dreamed and discovered. Too often we think it safer to just lie at anchor and give up the dream. Every time I travel, I feel like I cast off the bowline.
