Andiamo Nudo
A journey to the Bahamas aboard a 34 foot Gemini 105Mc by John, Tracey, JT, Gianna and Francesca (READ FROM THE BOTTOM UP)
A friendly town
07/22/2008, Swansboro

After about 9 hours of very little wind and very hot sun, we stop in Swansboro, NC. It is a small, quaint town that lives up to the marketing campaign.

Sunrise
07/22/2008, Wrightsville Beach, ICW

We leave Wrightsville Beach early and watch the sunrise as we head out. It is another HOT day on the ICW.

Animals
07/21/2008, ICW, in North Carolina

We are surprised to see about a half a dozen ewes or goats or some other kind of animals on the shore of the ICW.

Another lost tooth
07/20/2008, Myrtle Beach

Will the tooth fairy find the boat? We hope so because Gianna lost her third tooth on the top row! (She wants everyone to know she's lost five in all!)
No corn on the cob or apples for her!

Alligator Adventure
07/20/2008, Myrtle Beach

John is up at 5:00 AM to check the weather and it looks like the tropical depression is now a tropical storm and located north -- right where we are headed. Captian John decides "better safe that sorry" and we stay in Myrtle Beach one more day. We spend an interesting morning at Alligator Adventure and the kids even get to pet a baby alligator.

Tropically Depressed!
07/19/2008, Myrtle Beach

We were planning on leaving today but overnight a tropical depression developed right over Myrtle Beach. We don't want to take a chance with wind and waves, so we are stuck here. We go to the movies and see Journey to the Center of the Earth and hang out with our friends. Trust me, there are worse places to be stranded!

Happy Birthday, JT!!!
07/18/2008, Myrtle Beach, SC

We head to Myrtle Beach, and the friends we met in Charleston meet us there to help us celebrate JT's 9th birthday. One of the highlights of JT's day is Wulf let him drive their dingy to and from the restaurant. JT handled it like a pro and we all had a great dinner.

Ice Cream Cake
07/18/2008, Myrtle Beach

Thanks to our friends and boat neighbors, Wulf and Helga, who have a big freezer, JT got his favorite cake-- a Carvel ice cream cake! YUM!

Friends and Turtles
07/16/2008, Charleston, SC

The highlight of the kids' day was swimming and playing with our boat neighbors, Brian and Sophia. They had a great time all afternoon at that pool that spilled over into dinner, and led to movies on the boat and ending with dessert (and margaritas for the adults).

All hands on deck
07/16/2008, Charleston, SC

The kids thought that the airplanes on the deck of the ship were pretty cool. The bridge that connects Charleston to Mount Pleasant is pretty cool, too.

Patriotic Kids
07/16/2008, Charleston, SC

On board the USS Yorktown.

In the Navy?
07/16/2008, Charleston, SC

Right next to our marina, the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown is docked with a submarine, a battle ship and a coast guard ship. We took a tour this morning and learned a lot but later the kids decided they did not want to be in the navy afterall.

Horse and carriage
07/15/2008, Charleston, SC

There are many horse-drawn carriages that give tours around the city and we thought it would be a fun way to see the sites. This wasn't our horse but the girls were so impressed by this horses braids we had to stop and take photo.

The Old South
07/15/2008, Charleston, SC

We arrived in Charlston yesterday and spent today touring the cities old neighborhoods and beautiful mansions.

Look out Jimmy Buffett
07/13/2008, Beaufort, SC

The kids joined Sparky Jones as band and back up singers during our dinner at Luther's, a former pharmacy turned into a restaurant/bar. Is this how the Jonas Brothers got started?
