The Journey Begins

IMG_0179

Thanks for joining us!  We will post highlights of our adventures here for friends and family.

We returned from our first two-year cruise in August of 1989.  We are so excited to be sailing south this year, 2018; 29 years later.  Our goal at this time is to escape winter: the cold, shorter days, and the snow.  We have no idea how long this journey will last.  As we said last time, we’ll sail as long as it’s fun for both of us.  To all of our family and friends that love winter – ENJOY the cold, snow, ice (the ice boating Tom will miss) and the extra hours of darkness for catching up on sleep!  We plan to soak up Vitamin D from the sun, experience different cultures and foods, explore coral reefs and sail and swim in warm tropical waters.

We will need to maintain our floating home as we go.  The project list of things to install, repair or enhance is rather long.  Thankfully the safety list that must be complete before we leave the harbor is short.

We plan to rendezvous with other cruisers at the Seven Seas Cruising Association (SSCA) annual gathering in Annapolis, MD at the end of September for: cruising seminars, an exchange of sea stories and practical information, camaraderie and lots of fun!  Then on to the Annapolis boat show for one final shopping spree.
