IFJM13: Sailing Far Far Away From The Shore

13 April 2015

Understand that this was the first connection and conversation we’ve had, so we were  talking or enjoying Antonio and Palma’s company, and enjoying the sights.  Unfortunately for Mik, this will be the only time I ever see this view.  As I said, not a sailing gal!

W15 4 13 IFJM 001From my journal: “Wow! A replica of a brigantine passing us in the water [as we were getting started west.]   Mik says this is a possible vessel for E & M!”

W15 4 13 IFJM 004“Mayan / Phthalo / Manganese / Lapis [blues].  Water is hard!”

3pm From my journal: “Trip is about socializing & we are loving it . . . but I am goofy at oceans!  I drug out the two flats I brought.  Italy, above.  Below I will attempt a town . . . French!?  Mik wants a boat oh please help me . . . Update, I hate Cobalt Teal.  I better keep my day job.”

W15 4 13 IFJM 005Obviously, I suck at landscapes.  But then, I don’t do them much.  This was all I managed today, and posting because I have WiFi!!  We will have dinner on the boat, and even though we are to arrive in Marseille around 8:00pm, we will spend the night on the boat and get an early start tomorrow.

I miss the cats.  I don’t miss you guys yet but am enjoying contact through emails.

    This sounds like such a fun trip. Are any parts of it true?


    • No. I do have a husband Mitchell, but we have a antique objects conservation practice — MPF Conservation. I lived in Europe for three months at about 25 but hated Italy (except for Florence) which I think I would love now. I wanted to stay in France. I practiced architecture until I was 30 with my own firm but have not continued (other than for myself or friends except for a brief time when my first husband died and I considered going back to it — nope). So there is some crossover. When we get to the end I will talk about what my goal was in this fakery and what I have surprisingly learned. I will tell you that without this I might have gone bonkers from the kidney stones . . .
