It is with great pleasure that we received your note on Wednesday. It sounds like you are doing well, working hard, and perhaps the poor weather and another onset of your seasonal affective disorder are causing you to be crankier than usual.

We talked earlier about our fascination with weather and its impact of our travels over the past two months. So when we saw that there was a huge weather front moving into our area bringing 30+ knot winds for three days we needed to find a place to hide out. We looked at our destination, Highbourne Cay and saw that they had a marina! Well. What better place to wait out weather than a marina!

Loosely translated Sheboygan means “Land of bratwurst,” which makes it a little slice of heaven for two of the three of us. Continue reading “Sheboygan (8/12 – 8/19/17) Brats, White water rafting and more”
***I apologize–I’m catching up on posts from the past that haven’t made it on the sight yet. This is from Washington island at the end of last month. On or our favorite places so far on the loop.***
Well the best laid plans and all.
Our original plan was to anchor one night at Washington Island and then continue our journey south. But we woke up in the morning, it was an absolutely gorgeous day and there was an island in front of us. We have been hitting home runs when it comes to islands–they have all been awesome, so we decided to see if we could find some dock space that could fit our boat.

Beaver Island has made it close to the top of the best places we have seen on the loop. Like top 2. Because today rocked! And it really, like most things, is because of the people.
As promised from the sunset last night, the day is spectacular. When we arise, there is not a cloud in the sky and the Baie Fine, gorgeous yesterday, is spectacular. We are lazy and hang out until 10am and then hop in the dinghy and motor off to the north end of the pool where there is a dock and a trailhead that leads into the park and eventually up to a secluded blue lake called, appropriately enough, Topaz lake.

What a difference a day makes. Yesterday we left Wright’s marina, got into the wind/waves and were stressed the entire way. Today we had almost the exact same conditions with slightly larger waves. And that day of sailing under our belt really helped with our confidence today. Continue reading “What a great run and good bye to Endeavor (7/13/17)”
