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)”
We are opening up our boat to everyone in the local area who are interested in taking a look at where we will be living for the next year. Saturday, April 22nd from 12-4pm. The boat is located at Herrington Harbor North in Deale MD. The address is 389 Deale Road
Tracey’s Landing, Maryland 20779
When you turn in the entrance of the marina, follow the paved road all the way to the marina office. You will see the rows marked on signed. We are at Dock G which is close to the marina office.
The boat is at the end (T-head) of Dock G. Walk all the way to the end of the dock and our boat will be the last thing you get to before you fall into the water
Apologize for the long time between posts, but we have been prepping for and now are out on our shakedown cruse. Matter of fact, Im’ writing this as we move through the water from Herrington Harbor North to St Michaels. Loving hot spots!!!
We make progress, but it seems like there is a whole bunch of work to get done and time is ticking. We are 30 days out from closing on our house and leaving on our boat and our boat just got put in the water this week! To review: Continue reading “Week four of Prep: We Launch and we Purge”
If I’m being honest with myself (and to be frank, I try not to EVER be honest with myself), the last time I did a full day of manual labor that I can clearly remember was definitely the 1980s when I worked on Big Jerry’s farm. I probably had some days early in the Army career in the 1990s. There were a couple of tough days in the 2000s when I was in Iraq but I try not to dwell on those times. But the last couple of years my job has been driving a desk with some periods (like an hour a day MAX) of physical fitness. Continue reading “This is supposed to be FUN?!?!”
