Passages: Turks & Caicos to the DR!

Down the ‘Thorny’ path we go! It’s a rite of passage for any cruiser making their way to the Caribbean, and this particular passage is considered the roughest leg of the journey due to harsh seas and the wind generally coming from the wrong direction. Not gonna lie, knowing this m

Playcation in “Provo” Turks & Caicos

TCI for short, lies southeast of Mayaguana in the Bahamas, and northeast of Cuba and Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic). It is the third largest of the British overseas territories. We arrived at South Side Marina in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos (“Provo”) af

Lovely Long Island…Officially in the tropics

We made it to Long Island 🙂 The furthest south we’ve been in our sailboat – so far! We had high expectations for Long Island based off all that we read and of course what other cruisers had told us, “You’re gonna love it”. Happy to say, it did not disappoint and it&#

Journey Through Our Galley – Food P2

There’s nothing quite like cooking a meal at sea. I gotta say, I’m super proud of how well we’ve provisioned this year. It can be somewhat of an overwhelming process because you have to account for every single ingredient you’ll need or might need in advance. But what I thin

Eleuthera means “freedom”

Eleuthera is a gem! It’s remote but easily reached, gorgeous, and it’s not very touristy. Eleuthera has this unique combo of pristine beach + outdoor adventure. It’s a nature lovers dream! It kept us intrigued and excited to keep moving south to discover what these islands had to o

Pit stop in Great Guana Cay + Marsh Harbour

Great Guana Cay After a stressful situation with our windlass we set anchor for one night at Fisher’s Bay in Great Guana Cay. Our stop here was so-so and after a few hours walking around town we quickly figured out that this wasn’t the place for us. It does have a really beautiful beach

Boat work…in Paradise

Happy 2019! 🙂 I once read that owning a boat and full-time cruising means doing a lot of boat work in exotic places…well, it’s 100% true! Half the battle is just “diagnosing” the problem. Then you add limited resources in the islands on top of that and it gets stressful real quick

Green Turtle + Piggyville + Whale Cut

After a relaxing Christmas we tucked into White Sound and picked up a mooring ball from Phil Roberts (#365-4240) for a few nights at $20 a night. While waiting out another storm blowing through with 30-40 knot winds…December has been crazy for weather! While the weather was still nice we got t

Our favorite items on board

Traveling by sailboat is fun and exciting – sometimes exhausting, frustrating, and boring when not prepared with things that will give you the most comfort. Thankfully, we’ve spent enough time on our boat to accumulate a list of tried-and-true items that make our live-aboard lives fun/easy/h

Christmas in Green Turtle Cay

Christmas in Green Turtle Cay

Christmas in the Bahamas was pretty freakin’ great! Hands down the most relaxing Christmas we’ve ever had! Why?  No over priced flights to the east coast, crowded shopping malls, obligatory office Christmas parties or useless gifts this year…It was nice to forget about the stress/
