The Southern Cross Chronicles
But ne'er in all his watches,this rugged world across, Did he hear God's voice to starboard, till he sailed the Southern Cross

We are often asked "just what do you do all day?". Well that is a difficult question to answer but it seems that we spend most of our time working. WORK, WORK, WORK.

It's a tough job that is best left to professionals (see photo above).

We just noticed that a snowbound sailor in Jamestown, New York visited our site today. Take heart! There are still warm places somewhere in the world!

Things Are Looking Up
02/27/2015, Bahamas

Things are beginning to look up here in the islands. Most of our boat chores have been completed and the weather is improving. It seems that the strong cold fronts that have plagued the US will slowly lose their grip on the Bahamas and will yield to the easterly tradewinds. So by Monday we will get out for an extended cruise. The only problem is deciding just what direction to go first. Oh well, life is hard!

We've posted a few new photos in the gallery if you're interested. Stay warm!!

Just Beginning
02/11/2015, Man O War Cay

We've been back in the Bahamas for about two weeks now and we have just about got SC ready for sea.

The weather has been a mixture of incredible and awful. As I write this, it is a beautiful day and the wind is beginning to drop. We have experienced strong cold fronts every 48 hours that bring strong north winds (25k to 30k gusting to 35k last night) and the temperatures have been a little on the cool side.

While this might sound like a complaint, it isn't. We are blessed to be working on our boat in a wonderful place. So far we've been invited to a cocktail party by one of the island's residents, attended the local church on Sunday and rekindled friendships with cruisers that we met here last season. All in all it's been a great start to our time here.

Not Long Now
01/12/2015, Little Bahama Bank

The promise of the coming season floats through our minds as we approach the new sailing season. Feels something like waiting for an exciting trip when we were 7 years old! Time is just dragging by.
