Been reading some books about cruising. The type where the clueless couple buy a sailboat and go sailing. There are not any books about clueless person buys house and lives in it. I suppose there are some and I just haven't found them. Corresponding with one of the writers, he said, "If you really want to go you make it happen." I suppose that sums it all up house or boat.
Ya gotta wanna do it. Re-lay stone walkway so it drains better, bed down vegetable beds with sea grass from Pleasant Bay, and chip up dead fall. Voyage the house.
