TARDIS GETS WET

photograph by Sean Mulligan

Okay, I know her name was changed to "Scout", but I will always know her as TARDIS. When I checked my email this morning, I found an email announcing a new post on her guardian's blog: FullnBy.blogspot.com. I have been following her progress as Sean gets her ready for her first sail. Reading of her splash and seeing pictures of her floating, tears of joy and jealousy, streamed down my cheeks. This was my baby that I created and nurtured, and I never dreamed I would feel such emotions seeing her in someone else's hands. But, I will get over it, life goes on.

Scout is in good hands, Sean will take care of her and take her on all those sails that she was built for. I hope she treats him well and gives him years of fun.

Someday, I will see her again.

  1. I looked at the pictures on his blog yesterday and thought of you. She looks beautiful; you did a great job building her.

  2. I had the same emotion after selling my Paradox 'Faith'. Now I am renovating another Paradox, 'Minnow', and I'm really pleased to own a Paradox again.
    Cheers,
    Bill.

    1. Bill,
      I do understand what you went through and why you found another Paradox. I have been following your work on 'Minnow'.

      The Paradox is a special boat, like no other.

  3. Our sailing season is just beginning here in AZ Lezlie. Wait till it cools off just a bit more, and then plan a visit out to see us and visit Tardis. I would love for you to take her for a spin. :-)

    1. Sean,
      Thank you, and I might just take you up on that offer some day.
