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&#

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

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

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/

Back in the Bahamas – West End

Back in the Bahamas – West End

Were back in the Bahamas! and it feels so good 🙂 We departed Palm Beach, Fl on 12/17/18 at 5pm. We were originally planning to do a day sail on the 18th since we thought the weather conditions for the Gulf Stream would be better but after monitoring the Chris Parker updates (he’s a weather

Gulf Stream Crossing – Take two!

Gulf Stream Crossing – Take two!

After an unforgettable 3 months sailing through the Bahamas we crossed the Gulf Stream back to Florida! Our first sailing season has been a crazy, fun, sometimes difficult, but mostly awesome adventure. It’s hard to believe how quickly the time passed. Wow. We’ve grown and learned so muc

The Classic Daiquiri

The Classic Daiquiri

It’s not the adult slushie kind! I learned about the classic daiquiri during our stop in Nassau back in March. Until then I thought a daiquiri was just frozen, tossed into a blender with ice, artificial fruit flavors, then poured into a giant neon souvenir cup and topped with rum……

The Blue Hole

The Blue Hole

While working our way up the Berry Islands we stopped at Hoffman’s Cay for one night (a little tricky to get to with 5-7 foot depths in some places, but it was totally worth it!) so we could see the “blue hole,” which are basically underwater sinkholes/vertical caves. It’s about 600-ft wide
