  Summary of our Fourth Sailing Season now onboard our new boat, Dreaming On, a Leopard 47 Catamaran
        We traveled to Placencia in Belize in May 2008 to view and be present for the survey of "Dulcinea" as the boat was then called. After commitment to purchase we agreed for delivery at the end of September 2008.

Finally took delivery in the middle of October and immediately sailed our new toy to the Rio Dulce in Guatemala to hide from the still current hurricane season and to install various upgrades before our trip back to Florida.

Spent close to a month in the Rio Dulce, then headed north to the west coast of Florida, via Isla Mujeres in Mexico and a quick visit to Cancun.

On arrival Ft. Myers Beach in Florida, we loaded all our stuff removed from our first boat, Dream On, then enjoyed Christmas with Adam and Simon onboard.

Sailed down to the Florida Keys with New Year in Key West, then a stop in Marathon for more upgrades.

Moved from Marathon to Fort Lauderdale in February for scheduled post-survey work.

When survey work complete and ready to go sailing, we had an engine seizure followed by a lightning strike, so remained in Fort Lauderdale for the remainder of 2009..
