More Beach!
windy - 35-40kph winds...sunshine
03/25/2009, ManJack

More beaches and a lovely visit with Bill and Leslie, the owners of the beach (and internet service which is delivering this blog update).

A very impressive off-the grid complete living environment with fresh rain water collected in cisterns, extensive gardens, hydroponics driven by solar panel powered water pumps, chickens, bees, wonderful fruits and vegetables, high speed internet, a full equipped wood working shop, tractors, backhoe, ancient single cylinder diesel generator, boats, canoes, white sand beaches...........and on,and on.

Paradise found!

We hoping to get them to visit our home and/or the cottage when they travel through Ottawa later this spring!

Everyone should make an effort to come down here and experience the cleanliness, solitude, and unspoiled beauty of the place.

The marina confirmed our haulout date of April 3rd, so we better make hay while the sun is shining!

All the best!

I missed this blog and could not find the address till now. You should be on your way to Florida today and then driving home. It seems you had a lovely time sailing. We look forward to seeing you guys back in Ottawa.
Fresh Fish!
The colours are unbelievable
03/24/2009, Crystal clear water, lots of sun!

The shallow water at low tide reveals lots of friendly fish with no fear of humans... you might be able to reach down and pick them up!

We visited two homes under construction at the north end of ManJack this morning... courageous off-the-grid projects!

Enjoy

Wandering the shoreline
sunny and warm - 21C

Another day searching the beaches for treasures and relaxing in the sunshine........

We booked our return flights to Florida for April 6th, so we'll need to get everything ready and pack our bags (fortunately continental airline allows us 100lbs each, so we'll may just do it!

We've also arranged rental car and hotel so we should be able to enjoy the ride and even spend some time in Ft. Lauderdale (not my favourite centre of human activity).

With an end in sight, we want to explore asa much as possible over the next ten days. There is SO much to see, and wonderful unspoiled locales with untouched beauty.
