Namani at Sea
The travels of Nana, Markus and Nick aboard Namani
The blog has moved to Namaniatsea.org
29-Jul-2014

We have moved our blog to Namaniatsea.org, where you will also find all the old posts that were previously hosted here at Sailblogs. We'll keep Namani's Sailblogs page up for a while until we have cleaned up back links at the new location. Meanwhile new posts will only appear on Namaniatsea.org.

PS: The picture above shows the 40 or so most frequent words from blog posts during four years of living aboard Namani (courtesy of wordle.net)

The backshore of Peaks Island...
Flying home the long way
30-Jun-2014, Peaks Island, ME

... is a special place to us. Years ago we've sat here many times, dreaming about sailing away (Nana probably as long as she can remember). Now Peaks has become both, the destination for our first Transatlantic cruise and the departure point for our more recent "Pacific Interlude". We're back where we started almost three years ago and watching the setting sun reflect off the cliff on Cushing Island from the backshore is still a special treat ;-)

Between reuniting with family and the soccer world cup our first two weeks here seem to have passed in no time. We'll be on Peaks until the end of July, trying to finish a few of the projects we have started while living on Namani before a work schedule will make this a luxury again. We're no longer "traveling aboard" as the subtitle to this blog suggests but it still feels like these last weeks belong to "the trip". Hence we may post a few more updates before this blog goes dormant (or we can resurrect it in some other form).

Eastbound itinerary

We're back on the US Coast now, about a month after we left Namani and Australia in early May. We had a wonderful trip back with a few stops to see many old (and some new) friends along the way. Many thanks Margaret and Steve; Fenny, Howe and Elizabeth; Ken and Sylvia; Catherine and Chris; Sheila, Bill and Cecille; Sabina, Graham, Ethan and Lynden; Laura, Gary, Aiden, Gerda and Jack - it's been wonderful seeing you - you have all spoiled us with your hospitality!

We'll head up to Maine later this week - back to where we started this trip in September 2011.
