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

Cruising the South Coast of Puerto Rico

The South Coast of Puerto Rico is full of beautiful landscapes, warm people, fascinating attractions and intriguing cities. We’ve spent a month+ in PR and are amazed at how much it has to offer. The island itself is only 110 miles long (west to east) but offers everything from pristine beaches to

Walking tour of colorful Old San Juan

We spent a full day in Old San Juan before jumping on our 3:30AM flight to Atlanta, GA…yup, you read that correct, 3:30AM. The main attraction here are the forts (with breathtaking views of the Atlantic) but Old San Juan is a place best explored by foot so wandering the streets was the highlig

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

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&#
