Sorry everyone but the renovation is put on hold. My husband thought he was going to be home for a while and had planned to begin tearing into it! But his job has taken him out of town again. I have thought about closing this blog and returning to only managing my 'home blog' Sea Cottage, but I will keep it open for now. I just may not post until we can begin renovating The Pearl and then continue to blog about her many travels. We do have a deadline for her renovation to be completed by...August 2013. We will be taking her to the coast for our 25th wedding anniversary!
