Places

Beautiful Beaufort. Mansions, history, friendly people. And Kazoos! (4/30/18-5/1/18)

It is byoofort1, thank you very much. It is beautiful. The people are fantastic. But the best find? A Kazoo factory! Continue reading “Beautiful Beaufort. Mansions, history, friendly people. And Kazoos! (4/30/18-5/1/18)”

Oh the tides they are a changin’…Sisters Creek, FL (4/21/18-4/24/18)

I like a couple of things. Free dockage when it rains and blows. Lots of water under our keel. Coffee. Two out of three would have to suffice. Continue reading “Oh the tides they are a changin’…Sisters Creek, FL (4/21/18-4/24/18)”

Running along a ditch to St. Augustine (4/17/18-4/21/18)

I’m sure there is some way to be smart on how to use the tides to our advantage. I’ve no earthly idea how it works; our day today? A slow slog northward. But our new favorite city awaits. Continue reading “Running along a ditch to St. Augustine (4/17/18-4/21/18)”

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)”

Black Point Settlement (Great Guana Cay) (2/8/18-2/14/18)

Black Point. Where we came for a day, and ended up spending a week! It was a fantastic town with really friendly people who appear to really like the cruising community that sits in their bay. Continue reading “Black Point Settlement (Great Guana Cay) (2/8/18-2/14/18)”

Go West, young man, Go West (A case for the Wisconsin side of Lake Michigan on the Loop)

This has nothing to do with the Bahamas (where we are now). This is a catch up post from way back in the summer when we were on Lake Michigan.  I was reminded of  my home state when my brother sent me a text message that told me the temperature was sub zero.  I was glad that we are in the Bahamas where it is always 75 degrees, but remembered what a great time we had on the less travelled side of Lake Michigan.  Wisconsin.   Continue reading “Go West, young man, Go West (A case for the Wisconsin side of Lake Michigan on the Loop)”

Oh Bahamas, where have you been our entire lives? Cambridge Cay (2/3/18-2/5/18)

I gotta say, this place is just about magic.

Yes. The wind blows incessantly. The waves slap against our boat and the current whips us around our anchor. And the salt water irritates the crack of my rear end. But oh my lord, this is gorgeous. Why have we not been here before now?

Better late than never. Continue reading “Oh Bahamas, where have you been our entire lives? Cambridge Cay (2/3/18-2/5/18)”

Sharks, children and other dangerous things. Warderick Wells (2/1/17-2/2/17)

Our time in Highbourne Cay has come to an end and it is time to continue our journey south. While we don’t know precisely where we will ultimately stop and turn back to the North to the US of A, today we plan on heading SSE about 30 miles to Warderick Wells. And stay in the Exuma Cays Land and Sea park for awhile to hike, snorkel and take in the sights. Continue reading “Sharks, children and other dangerous things. Warderick Wells (2/1/17-2/2/17)”

Great Harbour Cay (1/14/18-1/19/18)

When last we left you, we had arrived in Great Harbour Cay after sailing/motoring all night. We covered Sid and his night swimming incident. We covered my humiliation on the dinghy and explained the bruises and scars that Jan has over most her body from her interaction with the mangrove trees. But we didn’t talk about the place itself. So a quick recap. Continue reading “Great Harbour Cay (1/14/18-1/19/18)”
