Rain puts the dismal in the Dismal Swamp (5/19/18)

Our trip today takes us from the Alligator river to the Dismal Swamp. Note to North Carolina: Spend some money on a PR dude/dudette and see if you can come up with more inviting names. Continue reading “Rain puts the dismal in the Dismal Swamp (5/19/18)”

Georgetown Week 1: (2/17/18-2/24/18)

We arrive at Georgetown, Bahamas after almost a month in the Bahamas. It is a destination of choice for many cruisers, a significant number of whom appear to be from Canada, who are escaping the winter weather up in the north. It is also a good stopping point for boats heading further south to far off destinations. There are literally hundreds of boats here and a very well defined community with a ton of activities. And, we have heard, kids. Continue reading “Georgetown Week 1: (2/17/18-2/24/18)”

A letter to ‘Mark’: Our day sucked and worse. It stank. On to Georgetown (2/16/18)

Dearest Mark;
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. Continue reading “A letter to ‘Mark’: Our day sucked and worse. It stank. On to Georgetown (2/16/18)”

Another freaking weather front and we have a marina to ourselves: Highbourne Cay (1/23/18-1/31/18)

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!

Sheboygan (8/12 – 8/19/17) Brats, White water rafting and more

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”

Biking and eating our way across Washington Island Wisconsin: Paradise (7/30/17-7/31/17)

***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.
