On the way North

02 April 2012 | Marsh Harbor, Abacos.
We have been far South for the Winter and have done no blogging. All is well.
Will spend the Summer in New England waters.

Watiing for the front to pass

Windy
We are possessed with the weather at the moment. The big cold that is passing (and rocking the boat at this moment) will soon give us an opportunity to run south with the wind off our beam. Hope to depart on Saturday. Looking forward to a fast run. We hope to make it far down the Florida coast and then cross over the Gulf Stream when conditions allow.

Angel is stocked and in good trim.

All is well.

Lovely, warm and sunny
We arrived on Sunday....tired... but in good shape after sailing from Beaufort, NC.

Angel will be berthed at Charleston City Marina for a few weeks. It is nice to be out of the cold at a first class marina. We will have plenty of time to get to know the scene here and catch up on various projects.

About:
We just love living in the marine environment which enables us to "sea" our lives from a different perspective. We continue to seek to free ourselves from misguided concepts of success such as "status" and "net worth". [...]
Extra:
When I heard the learn'd astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, [...]
