Ditchin’ the Ditch

In the past we have entered and exited the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) at Morehead City, NC, making the jump to Fernandina Beach, FL or vice-versa. The ICW from Norfolk to Morehead City is well traveled since it cuts off going around Cape Hatteras where the weather can change quickly. Normally it takes us about 3 … Continue reading »

We left our anchorage outside of Royal Island Harbour on Friday, March 15th at 6:00 a.m. (Luckily, we had no need to “beware the ides of March.”) When we arrived in Charleston, SC to clear Customs it was 10:30 a.m. on March 18th. According to our Spot track we had logged 537 nautical miles in … Continue reading »

[I think I finally fixed that pesky link between the blog and my facebook account. I know some folks just follow the blog through facebook, so I wanted to post the missed blogs here just to keep things orderly. So, while I continue to work on the post that summarizes our trip north in the … Continue reading »

My White Whale

Sabrina and I have caught a lot of fish while we’ve been cruising, (some day I’ll have to put together a photo album of just that,) but there’s always been one fish that has eluded me…. No, not the dozen buffalo wings I wished for, but my favorite fish to eat – the yellowfin tuna. … Continue reading »

Spring Training

Sabrina and I managed to stay VERY busy while we waited in Georgetown for a weather window. We said goodbye to our friends Sean and Shannon when they flew home on February 27th. After a day or two to rest, we realized that we were stuck in Georgetown waiting for weather during the 33rd year … Continue reading »

Heading Home

We’ve been working hard to get everything ready to leave for Maryland. We took on diesel, gas, and water, we picked up our fresh groceries, and stowed everything for passage. The weather has been against us for about the last week, (and today doesn’t look to great) but there’s a small window that we’re trying … Continue reading »

Guest Shots

It has been almost two weeks since we last posted to the blog. Some of you might think that our silence might mean we don’t have anything interesting to write about –  but that couldn’t be further from the truth! The last two weeks have been a whirlwind of activity, some awesome, some ridiculous, but all … Continue reading »

Cat Island

Our friends Sean and Shannon flew in on Thursday afternoon. We hung out in Georgetown that night, went to the Rake n’ Scrape at the Peace and Plenty, and made plans to head out first thing Friday morning. Our destination? Cat Island. We decided on Cat Island for the simple reasons that we’d never been there and … Continue reading »

Two Wild and Crazy Guys!

On January 31st, Sabrina flew home to visit family and my former college roommate, Stretch, flew into town. (He earned the nickname “Stretch” while playing drums in the Ohio University Marching 110, and since his real name is Brad, it’s easier when we’re together for him to still use it.)  Stretch lives in northeast Ohio … Continue reading »

What are the Odds?

My buddy Stretch left on Tuesday, February 5th after a fun day of softball, beer drinking, and hanging out. Sabrina would be flying back in on Friday February 8th.  Accompanying her on her trip back would be her brother, Chris, and sister-in-law, Kathy, to visit us until February 17th. That gave me a few days … Continue reading »
