Radio Silence

I know it had been a month since my last post. We have been crazy busy and hardly had a spare minute to think. Over the last month we crossed through the Bahamas and pulled into West Palm Beach where we stuffed ourselves with good Mexican food. We continued up the ICW and landed in Fort Pierce 2 weeks ago. Since then it has been non stop cleaning, packing, and boat projects as we got the boat ready to be hauled out and shut down for the summer.  We are now starting our summer with a road trip across the country!  

USA straight ahead. 

Refinishing the floors

They turned out BEAUTIFUL!

Sewing the sail at the hotel

The worst the bottom if the boat has ever looked. This is after a pressure wash!

Back to the Bahamas

If Stacey is still reading the blog send me your email address to

We started off our 7 day crossing with the wind and seas in our favor.  We basically sailed for 3 days without adjusting the sails. We pulled into Turks and Caicos for a couple nights of good sleep and some haircuts, then headed out again for another 3 days. Preston spotted humpback whales again!  They didn't stuck around long, but I was able to get a couple pictures. We only saw a few boats through the whole trip. The last day and a half was heading straight into the wind and waves and we were so tired we pulled the sails in and motored to get us there faster. It is brutal when we have to pound into the waves. We were both dying to get to a calm anchorage by day 3, and the Bahamas did not disappoint. We have been calmly anchored for the past 4 days enjoying the crystal clear water, warm weather, and unlimited internet on the boat.  Our goal is to spend the next couple weeks working our way up the Bahamas and back to Florida by June 1st.
