This year my birthday was spent enjoying our last full 24 hours on our boat before we handed her over to the new owner and walked away forever.
I could make this post all sad, and talk about how I was kicked out of my home on my birthday....but since I asked for this, I was just as delighted about it as I was sad.
But yes, the moment has finally come where we hand Elements off to her new owner. After getting one last little trip in as we headed down the river and into the town of Falmouth, we had one full day left on her before packing up and walking away. And as many emotions as we had running through us at the time, we tried not to let ourselves think about it too hard. Not while we were still there.
The good news is, passing her over to her new owner Brice, was so incredibly easy, and it was really nice to have a face to go with the long conversations we'd been having over the previous month. We know we've left Elements in great hands, and it's time for both parties involved to begin their new adventure.
Much love from Cornwall!
