Monday night, July 15:
Getting a little snuggle time in with the family before departure. My son Aaron is a few days shy of 2 months old. I'm walking the expected trip through in my mind. A train ride to Newport, About to sail hundreds of miles with people I don't know on a boat I've never sailed before on an ocean I've never crossed before. Lots to think about, but my son is rubbing his ear against my cheek and it's a good day.
