Sans Souci sitting at Shoal Bay
Greetings all! Roberta and I have started our 2017 cruising season!

Roberta with our new tender
Greetings all! Roberta and I will be off to a slow start on our cruising this year.   Over a decade ago I was told I needed a new right knee. I ignored the Doctors and the knee got worse. Finally, this year it became obvious that I could delay no further. Knee replacement is not an easy surgery. Actually, I’m not sure there is such a thing as an easy surgery.
