Santa’s Little Ho Ho

It’s been a while since I shared a cocktail recipe so I think I’m overdue 🙂 I’m (were) a big fan of champagne but haven’t really experimented mixing it with too many things. This recipe seemed festive and a good way to celebrate the holiday season. Honestly, it’s been hard getting in t

Summer lovin’

Summer should get a speeding ticket, seriously! Our summer/hurricane season break was filled with lots of fun adventures! Feeling grateful that we were able to have this time to freely travel the country, stopping along the way to see friends and family. But what we loved most about this summer was

ICW – Northbound P2

Part-two of our ICW adventure is about all of the land fun we had along the way! Part-one was more about navigation, bridges, and stories as first-time ICW travelers. But our favorite part of cruising the ICW was taking our time to explore parts of the coast of Florida that we hadn’t seen since we

ICW – Northbound P1

Proudly checking off sailing The Intracoastal Waterway, a.k.a “ICW”, a.k.a “The Ditch”. Check. 🙂 The ICW is basically the superhighway for boats! This waterway allows cruisers to travel along the east coast without having to enter the Atlantic Ocean. The plus side to this

Decommissioning our boat

It’s been a week since we tucked away our gal for the cruising season. We left her in Green Cove Springs, FL We chose this marina for several reasons; affordable, long term storage, a do-it-yourself boat yard, and it’s located 25 miles inland with less exposure to storm winds and surge.

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

Our sailboat home

Finally getting around to posting all the interior…8 months later! Welcome to our home afloat! This is S/V Sea duction, I should mention we didn’t name her this. She was purchased with that name and although Brent hates the name for obvious punnie reasons, (I) people love it – it&#

Holy Mackerel

Holy Mackerel

After months of catching pesky barracuda’s and throwing them back in, we finally caught some fish worthy of eating! TWO King Mackerels. Mackerel are medium sized and true members of the tuna family. It’s an oily fish, so it’s loaded with Omega-3 which is why their raw flesh is a gr

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

Preparing for guest aboard

Welcome aboard S/V Sea duction!!! We had FOUR guest aboard this season! After speaking to other cruisers we realized this was a lot and we really appreciated everyone who came to visit us. From FL, NYC, and CA, they could have spent their time anywhere else but chose to experience liveaboard life to
