In Preparation of our Grand Voyage
11 September 2007 | Tavernier, Florida
We were in search of a great program (meaning easy to learn but displaying a lot of info). After a few try at Page maker program, we definetly decided that this blog system will fit our needs just fine with a minimum of efforts. There is so much to research and prepare between the homeschooling (The kids are still in Traditional Public shool at this time), the first aid kit (I should say wagon) and all the add-on to O'Vive that we want to have before we leave in December that David and myself are busy all day long. We used to work long hours so it seemed at first that you could accomplished so much in a whole long day ! But since everything is new, it requires research, consensus and power of decision! We are so excited though! Our dream of 20 years is about to come true!
We have been cruising every summer the Bahamas waters for over 7 years now on a Manta 42, our first catamaran called Melusine (a french mermaid's name). We really enjoyed Melusine very very much but we decided to get something bigger for our trip, the kids are taking a lot more room than when they were 5 and 7!
The Bahamas were absolutly beautiful and quiet remote when you get to areas like the ragged islands, south of Georgetown. We loved the turquoise waters, spearfishing and all the good friends we made there.
By now whomever reads this blog besides friends and family has probably figured out that I was a foreigner (French, but leaving in the U.S since 20 years now and a US citizen), by the way I turn my sentences, also more than likely by the way I spell, sorry!!!
Anyway it is great to be in the "getting ready" part of the dream, I love it!!!
Any info from Florida resident who boatschooled children (middle and highschool) would be greatly appreciated!!!
