Last month I had the opportunity to visit Barcelona, Spain for work. The very first evening I was asked what I wanted to do, and I was quick to respond, "have dinner down by the marina." That turned out to be amazing! We had sangria, tapas, San Miguels beer, and pizza ... all the while looking over a beautiful marina in Barcelona. We would watch as boats bobbed up and down gently. We would watch as seamen climbed aboard boats and disembarked them. We would watch as staff of large yachts would wash down the beautiful ships. With every moment, I drew in the salt air, the image of the yachts, and imagined myself returning to Barcelona on our boat as a family ... being the ones watched by another person dreaming of the day they set sail.
