The Final Crossing ...

The sky was bubblegum pink as we smoothly sailed out of the Dubrovnik harbor last night around 2100, floating past the walls of the ancient city and into the Adriatic Sea. After withstanding an attack by the Yugoslav People's Army in 1991 that left the majestic city in shambles, the refurbished rampart stood as perhaps the perfect backdrop to the end of a prodigious journey. I sat on deck 6 aft with my feet propped up against the railings, chatting with my friend Missy and venturing to nearly tap the surface of all that I, and we as a collective, have experienced. A reflection that is beginning to materialize but I imagine will take quite a bit of time to truly unfold.
