Stranded on Familiar Shores

By , December 5, 2013

We were supposed to return to the “homestead” yesterday. Our best hope at the moment will be to arrive tomorrow. We’re stranded in Juneau because of ferry breakdowns, about 65 sea miles short of home.

Travel delays are nothing new to us. Growing up in Southeast Alaska, one grows used to them. And, since we called Juneau home for 14 years, we’re not exactly strangers in a strange land.

Still, it’s hard to take. We’ve had a good Thanksgiving, enjoyed the visiting and travel, but we’re ready to be home.

We’re in limbo for the time being. The friends who agreed to keep us a day while we waited for the ferry seem content to keep us till Friday. But, we’ve got so much to do at home, we miss it terribly, and it’s so beastly difficult to type this blog post on my friend’s tiny netbook!

Please bear with. The comments people have posted have yet to be approved and responded to. Orders from the store page have gone unfilled (I loaded a thumb drive with my brother’s boat plans, so I could log onto borrowed computers and fill his orders, but I forgot to add our sifter plans. I’m a lousy businessman, but I’m a great brother—just ask Dave!).

It’ll all come together soon. We’ll get home eventually. Then, we’ll have a lot of catching up to do.

    Hope you get home soon! No matter how zen we try to be, these kind of delays do annoy.

    Thanks Patricia. We’re trying to keep our feelings at disappointed. That produces fewer rants than annoyed.
