What the hell are we doing out here today? (4/16/18)

Titusville just keeps on giving: Playing bumper cars. With boats. (4/15/18)

Titusville. Ah, Titusville. Like a Russian nesting doll, it has layers and layers of surprises. If the rocket launch on Saturday wasn’t enough, on Sunday, we got a cannonball in the shape of a power boat. Continue reading “Titusville just keeps on giving: Playing bumper cars.

On the road again. (4/11/18-4/13/18)

Technically, it is the water not the road, but I like wailing out Willie Nelson when slogging up the waterway rather than, say Christopher Cross and ‘Sailing.’ Continue reading “On the road again. (4/11/18-4/13/18)”

Land of Gluttony and Hedonism. Welcome back to the USofA! Ft. Pierce, FL (4/4/18-4/11/18)

Holy cow. After 84 days in the Bahamas (and that is about six months or more too few), we are back in the good ole USofA. Fort Pierce Municipal Marina is our home for a week. We have power. Unlimited water. A rental car. Good to be back. Continue reading “Land of Gluttony and Hedonism. Welcome back to the USofA! Ft. Pierce, FL (4/4/18-4/11/18)”

Heading Back to the USofA (4/2/18-4/3/18)

We are on the third of our planned three day push back to the USofA. First two were short days with stops at anchorages. Last day? All day and all night back to USofA. Across the big bad Atlantic and the gulf stream. Continue reading “Heading Back to the USofA (4/2/18-4/3/18)”

Solar: Upping our connection to the sun.

While we wait for a weather window to move to the Bahamas, we take a minute to upgrade the solar system on our boat.   Continue reading “Solar: Upping our connection to the sun.”

Marco Island to Marathon: We sail! And find a secluded beach getaway (12/11/17-12/12/17)

This is a catch up post from earlier this month. Two days of travel in which we remember that we are actually a SAIL boat, head out and enjoy the wind and waves. Or at least enjoy the wind. And have one of the best sailing days on the trip. Continue reading “Marco Island to Marathon: We sail! And find a secluded beach getaway (12/11/17-12/12/17)”

Key West!! By Bus. And we love the bus! (12/23/17)
