A walk about Barcelona (7/30/19)

After our big day of museums yesterday (for the record, it was two, but you would have thought it was 1,000 the way the gallery was yelling), the decision was to minimize the museums unless they were ‘fun.’  Today we would be walking through the town seeing the highlights.

A different kind of birthday present (6/30/19)

It is Jan’s birthday today, and she is one year older.  I won’t tell you how many of those years she has under her belt, because I want to enjoy the rest of this trip and not spend a day in the hospital removing her flip flop from my a$$.  I tried to think outside of the box for what exactly to get her for her birthday; after all, she has both AJ and me in her life and what more could anyone ask for?  And we both already have too much stuff, so I figured I’d give her an experience instead of a thing.

Welcome back! (A special welcome back from the Chesapeake Bay) (5/21/18)

[Note: This post is a transcript of a recoding of a rant by the Chesapeake Bay. Please note that there may be some salty language that may not be suitable for some of the reading audience. Also note that the Bay is actually a body of water, and cannot actually rant. This is what we imagined he was saying as we spent our first full day back on the bay.]

We leave our next home running to escape thunderstorms. Wait for days for rain and then when we next leave? It rains. Continue reading “We escape imaginary thunderstorms. And then it rains (5/15/18-5/18/18)”

Big Creek, NC and we find our next place to live (5/14/18)

After leaving Beaufort, we spend the day with friends, both new and old, and perhaps find the area where we want look at living long term! Continue reading “Big Creek, NC and we find our next place to live (5/14/18)”

Back into the ocean, Beaufort here we come. And we find another FWHOTBBNTWWU (5/12/18)

To hell with the ICW–at least for a day. We are heading into the Big Bad Atlantic for a (hopefully) short run to Beaufort. If we can get out of the fog. Continue reading “Back into the ocean, Beaufort here we come. And we find another FWHOTBBNTWWU (5/12/18)”

Why are there so many boats?!?! Welcome to North Carolina (Part Deux) (5/11/18)

After the debacle yesterday we were hungering for something a bit better today. We got it. For a bit. Then came the swarm of boats. Continue reading “Why are there so many boats?!?! Welcome to North Carolina (Part Deux) (5/11/18)”

“Ain’t Boating Fun?” Welcome to North Carolina (Part one) (5/10/18)

We spend THREE HOURS trying to anchor our boat. THREE HOURS! While a lovely couple from Canada watches. And offers tips. Just shoot me. Continue reading ““Ain’t Boating Fun?” Welcome to North Carolina (Part one) (5/10/18)”

Just another thing (5/2/18)

Another day of moving up the ICW. It starts out like all the rest. And then an engine quits. Continue reading “Just another thing (5/2/18)”
