On the trip

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

We move from Titusville to Fort Matanzas Daytona. And we are reminded we really don’t like Florida. Continue reading “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)”

Part one of our trip back to the USofA: The Boundary Waters Canoe Area (3/31/18-4/1/18)

We are officially on our way back to the states. It will take three days, the first two of which are short runs and the last will be a FULL day. Little did we know that we would be transported to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (BWCA) for the first two days. Continue reading “Part one of our trip back to the USofA: The Boundary Waters Canoe Area (3/31/18-4/1/18)”

Fighting on our way to Treasure cay (3/29/18)

We live on a boat that is 36 feet by 18.5 feet. Not all of that is living space. It is small. But to us, at least by now, it is home and feels enormous. Plenty of space. But when one, two or three of the people aboard the boat are in a pissy mood, it can get really, really small, really, really quickly. Now normally the bad hair days are spread out so that if one person is having one, the other two are not and we all manage. But on the days when two or more of us wake up on the cranky side of the bed, the boat can become cramped. On the rare occasions when it is the two adults that are snappy, there isn’t enough space in the Bahamas to spread out, much less on this boat.

Good Bye Eleutheras and Hello Abacos; then we run before a storm to Hope Town (3/25/18-3/26/18)

We have come to the end of the Eleutheras. We could take a right and head over to another pink beach and cute island, but we decide to head back into the Big, Bad Atlantic and cross over to the Abacos and then make our way to Hope Town. Continue reading “Good Bye Eleutheras and Hello Abacos; then we run before a storm to Hope Town (3/25/18-3/26/18)”

Hatchet Bay: The ‘most’ protected harbor in the Bahamas (3/19/18-3/22/18)

When last we left you, we had pulled into Hatchet Bay to escape from some weather. Three days we spent in the town. A tourist trap, this is not. Continue reading “Hatchet Bay: The ‘most’ protected harbor in the Bahamas (3/19/18-3/22/18)”
