Moving on

My neighbors love the water. Every summer, they travel by boat to the North Channel in Canada. Last year, they spent five months traveling through Lakes Michigan and Superior. Today, they’re holding a sale in the home they sold a month ago. They’re moving on and will live on their boat year-round in Florida.

“It’s so freeing,” Jan said. “We love getting rid of all this stuff.”

I bought a two-person tent, some beach towels, three books and some dishes for my niece.

I love the idea of divesting and living a minimalist life. Indeed, one of those tiny houses sounds very good to me. As does living on a boat year-round.
