3. November, 2004:
After a nine month worlswide search mainly on the internet we bought our new Amulet II in Seattle on October 8, 2004. We took her a bit north of Seattle to Everett, where we hauled her in a boatyard for the winter. We are now back in Denmark finishing up all the work we have done on our house and having it on the market for renting.
We are leaving Denmark on the 16th of December, and until then we will be very busy winding up our old life here - getting our life administration under control, getting rid of things, storing the few belongings we keep in our summer house, and saying good bye to all our friends here.
Plans are to spend Christmas with Heidi in New Jersey, and then probably hang around the East Coast and Libby's family for the worst of winter, before driving out to Seattle, probably in February. For the longer time we might hang around the Nortwest area for a year or two as we like it so much out there, and we hope that that will include a trip to Alaska. The joker in our plans is my Mother, who is not doing so well and who may require our prescence in Denmark for longer periods in the future.
Heidi & Carsten:
Heidi is now working as a dentist at the Dental School of New Jersey in Newark, and Carsten has just found work again at a ski shop here in Copenhagen after a long bout with problems and three surgeries after a broken collar bone sustained in a bike accident in Seattle a year ago. Carsten is engaged to Carolina who is studying medicine here in Copenhagen and who pretends to be Danish in spite of a flawless Brazilian heritage. They plan to marry next summer
