1. An extended account in prose or verse of historical events, sometimes including legendary material, presented in chronological order and without authorial interpretation or comment.

Greetings and welcome to our blog! We hope that you will find the entries to come both informative and entertaining.

The first thing you must know is that this blog has no spell check function so I'm sure that a typo or even a gross spelling error is going to sneak through every now and then.

So let's get to it! Mel and I are at long last in the final stages of our preparation to cast off the dock lines and live while we still can. The start up of our blog is another step toward that end as we establish a means for our friends and family to keep up with our travels and adventures.

We hope to fill these pages with an extended account in prose or verse of historical events, sometimes including legendary material, presented in chronological order. We cannot, however, promise that it will be without authorial interpretation or comment.

The boat is currently on the hard, getting a fresh coat of bottom paint and some other below-the-water-line maintenance and we are roughing it at the Double Tree Hotel in San Pedro, CA.

You might think that we would be loving the leisurely life of maid service and a king size bed but we are both very anxious to get back on the boat. We even drove by the yard today to have a look at her through the fence because we miss her. I think that's a sign that we have made the correct life choice...

So here we go, have fun browsing the photos and let us know if you have questions, comments, complaints or threats.
