Join Early Retirement Today
Third Age
We named our Catalina 387 Third Age after Troisième Âge, which is the French expression for retirement age. We bought Third Age in 2005 and lived and cruised on her for 18 months before selling her in Providence R.I. We lost most of the photos from our adventure, but recovered these from email.
