Dream boating

What do you make of this dream I had last night?

Significant Other and I were heading across Lake Ontario in our TomCat 24 At Last when by chance, in a foggy area where a group of boats were fishing, we met Contributing Editor Garrett Lambert and Senior Contributing Editor Milt Baker. Garrett was with his wife, Helen, shown in the photo, aboard their Pacific Trawler 40 Legato, and Milt was with his wife, Judy, aboard their Nordhavn 47 Bluewater.

The thing is Legato is in Sydney, British Columbia, while Bluewater is on the hard in Barcelona, Spain, both thousands of miles from Lake Ontario. Although we are in touch frequently by email, I haven't seen Legato and her crew since we sea-trialed the Nordhavn 68 in August. Bluewater and her crew I haven't seen for about a year, before they started their trans-Atlantic adventure.
