Ahoy!



Saturday commenced the first of the summer season. The shrink wrap came down and we no longer feel like we are living in a cave with a plastic bag for a hat. Summer boat living connects you to the world; neighbors, weather, fishing and adventure. The winter, in comparison, feels isolating despite the fact your neighbor is only 20 feet away. The first of the season serves as a reminder of what needs to be done before we set sail south this August and a chance to reminisce about seasons past.


Dan and I hope this blog will serve as a diary of our time at sea and a medium to connect with friends and family. We have been saving and planning for a year and a half in hopes to be unemployed and sailing for up to 2 years. This will be Dan’s fourth season sailing and my third. Needless-to-say, we have a lot to learn. 

Memories from last year-
