Taking her home

Today was the day to bring Opus home. Sure, she had a home, but once she was sold to me, she really couldn’t stay where she was – a member’s only yacht club dock. Even if I had joined the yacht club, I still wouldn’t have been able to keep her there. I would have had zero seniority and there’s a waiting list.

Instead, she’s berthed elsewhere. Unfortunately, it’s in the U.S., which meant I had to cross the border. I don’t know if it’s because I have U.S. (as well as Canadian) citizenship, whether it’s because I have a NEXUS card, or whether it’s because I’ve have my first jab of vaccination, isolated for more than 2 weeks before the trip, or that I had a negative COVID test 3 days, but it was easier to import ME to the U.S. than it was to import the yacht.

Anyway, I’m bushed after a day that started at 2:30 in the morning so I’ll write more another time.
