It is with great sadness…….

Nikki transiting the Panama Canal – March 2016

Hello Old Friends….

It’s been quite awhile since I last posted to the home page of svbeachhouse.

It is with great sadness that I must post the recent loss of my love of the past seven years, Nicola Woodrow.

Very suddenly, Nikki began symptoms of what we believed was pneumonia and turned out to be the devastating diagnosis of advanced cancer. From the time of her diagnosis to loss was a mere 20 days.

We have been living in Australia since the end of our mutual circumnavigation and enjoying life in Perth and doing some fantastic touring all over the country; most recently by caravan. Our caravan was known as “beauty” and our Toyota Landcruiser 200 – “beast”.

Though I am the better part of two years out of date on this blog, I truly do intend to catch it up in the first quarter of 2019.

Nikki was my life in Australia and it’s been a truly fantastic experience, a time I will always treasure.

I will be moving back to Santa Barbara, California to my land based “Beach House” just before Christmas and in reflection of losing the two great loves of my life, I’ll finish writing and posting the photos and adventures of sailing vessel “Beach House” and the incredible times we all had.

I’d love to hear from you all and if you don’t have my direct land based gmail, using the contact form here will be just fine.

You can join us on facebook by doing a friend request on my name….

Love and Hugs to you all, please keep your families and friends very close, for you truly never know how long we’ll all have together.
