December 2014

On December 4th we pulled anchor at noon  and made our way out of Port Royal heading for Florida.  We started out with little to no wind so decided to motor.  The wind started to build as the day went on but it was dead astern, along with a  significant swell that was directly on the beam made for an awfully uncomfortable passage.  Cadence was literally rolling on her beam ends the entire passage.  To make matters...

ICW November 3, 2014

We had a nice stay in Portsmouth VA, just across the river from Norfolk.  We were able to sneak into a town landing that had dock space open, and is FREE.  First come first serve and we ended up getting a coveted spot.  We sat out a nor’easter for two days that brought winds up to 45 knots.  

Our first night we went out to the historic Commodore Theatre to take in a movie and dinner.  It is an...

Sometimes Less is More...........Difficult

Its finally here. After counting the days for the past two and a half years since we set our move aboard date we are now on the cusp of realizing this dream. How did it get here so slowly but yet so quickly?! 

I anticipate that you gain a lot when moving aboard but right now it seems like most of what we are doing is giving things up. Things that are hard to give up and others that are...

July and August were extremely busy.  So much so that I don’t remember summer even
being a consideration as it always has every year of my life.  In a nutshell, 61 Woodlands sold July 24 so it was high gear for the entire month of July moving everything out, sellingitems on ebay, packing keepsakes and opening up a storage unit.

Our rental home in Scarsdale ended July 31st as well.  We have become ebay masters, well acquainted w...
