Retirement Beckons

In less than a month we will be setting off on the longest boat trip of our lives! I will be retiring on my 55th birthday and to celebrate both occasions, we will be untying Caxton and then heading off into the wilderness for six months.

We’ve not published any blog posts since last summer because it would have been difficult to write without mentioning our plans. The company that I work for have known since November that I had planned to retire but the wider announcement has had to wait until now. The news is out now so there is no reason not to mention it freely on here.

We haven’t done much boating anyway, most of our time and energy has been devoted to making all sorts of preparations for this big change in lifestyle. We’re almost done now with only a few bits and pieces to complete before the great voyage begins next month.
