Guadeloupe: France in the tropics

It’s true…WE LOVE GUADELOUPE! We spent over a month+ in the butterfly-shaped 630 square-mile island duo, and it did not disappoint us. With its lush rainforest, volcanic peaks, and all the delicious food and wine you could possibly want. Guadeloupe blends some of the most appealing aspec

St. Kitts & Nevis

St. Kitts & Nevis

With its pristine coastline and lush rainforest our approach into St. Kitts has made for one of my favorite “Land Ho” moments. As the sun brightly shined, pops of olive, lime, emerald, and pear randomly scattered the hillside and mountain tops. All of these distinct hues of green made

It’s our boat-aversey!

T W O years ago to the date, we moved onto our floating home in Ft. Lauderdale, FL to pursue a dream of sailing through the Bahamas and Caribbean. Well folks, we are doing it!!! 🙂 Our travels in 2019 have brought gratitude for some of the smallest things, and a realization of some huge wonders [

Sint Eustatius: an island out of time

Our passage over to Sint Eustatius, locally known as Statia (Stay-sha), was anything but as predicted. Starting with a Mega yacht traffic jam coming out of the Simpson Bay lagoon where we were greeted with rain showers and squalls right after raising the sails followed by a brief engine fail and end

St. John: A Heart for the “Love City”

We’ve been all over St. Thomas and the British Virgin Islands for the past two months and St. John has been our favorite! We just keep gravitating back here. St. John may be the smallest of the 3 U.S. Virgin Islands but it is strikingly beautiful! 60% of the island is taken up by the […

Smooth Sailing in ST. Thomas

We’ve been in the Virgin Islands for nine weeks! Incredibly grateful that we’ve been able to call the VI’s “home” for the remainder of our second cruising season. To think back, 7 months ago this was just a goal, a dream, a plan we’d hoped to achieve. It wasn’t

Luperón: The Perfect Hurricane Hole

Hola! Get comfy there’s LOTS to cover here! It’s been 3 weeks since we crossed over to the Dominican Republic. Luperón to be exact! A cruising destination I once said, “Ooh, we are not going there!” Last season so-and-so said “customs people with large guns will boar

Passages: Turks & Caicos to the DR!

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
