Wet day in NSB

Wednesday 22 January 2020
Still have 845 miles to go and we didn’t travel anywhere today. It was wet, raining, cold and miserable. We also decided we were going to spoil ourselves with another night here so we can have at least one day of close to...

On in the cold and wind

Tuesday 21 January 2020
879 statute miles to go. A short day today. Only 35 but still pushing into the wind.

Once we were on the mooring last night it was cold enough that we wasted no time whatsoever buttoning up the boat and turning on...

On to Titusville. Brrrrr!

Monday 20 January 2020

First I have to say that I had some concerns last...

Windy day at Lighthouse Point

Friday 17 January 2020

If you didn't get the message yesterday let me reinforce the fact that I, at least, wouldn't mind one little bit if we were to get our hands...

Another warm day in Stuart

Thursday 16 January 2020
It turns out that the boat that was coming in to the space on the dock where we are presently may not be coming in until tomorrow so we do have the option of staying another day. However, as we are tired of bleeding money, we...

Stuart and we have a mooring to move to tomorrow

Wednesday 15 January 2020
Up after getting recovered from the lack of sleep on the crossing and ready to go. First task was a trip to Walmart's for provisioning. These outings are always fun, made so by the driver, Sam, who is also the General Manager...

Second post for first day back in Stuart

Tuesday 14 January 2020
All right!

It's morning. Sort of. We arrived at the fuel dock at Sunset Bay Marina at around 0200 last night, had a quick bite to eat, a celebratory tot, and crashed for three to four hours until the marina opened...

Back at Stuart

Monday 13 January 2020
Isn't it interesting how there is always a serpent of some sort in every Eden? Here is Alice Town in North Bimini, it's the garbage in the streets resulting, we have surmised, from the residents lack of hope for anything better....
