If you don’t recall, 2020 was depressing (see The Lost & Found Year(s): COVID Trip Report). At the same time, 2019 was one of the best years for TPOL (see Happy New Year from TPOL: The Year & Hindsight Is 2020). As referenced in that post, I declared Victory Over Life that year, specifically on July 28th. That was the day that my demo crew knocked over an extraneous wall, further opening my kitchen to this remarkable ocean view. I’m sure my mental sanity has taken a hit over these last six months, but #vol endures regardless of the never-ending pandemic.
