Home again!

After our wonderful visit to Spanish Wells, we began our trip homeward.  God blessed us with a 5 day weather window and we enjoyed 3 days of sweet travel.  Before leaving, we anchored at Egg Island enjoying a beautiful day in the water.   The boys did their “workouts” climbing up the anchor line to…

The Wells to Spanish Wells

With Captain Clayton aboard, we traveled east from Eleuthera to the island of Spanish Wells through “the devil’s backbone,” a very precarious trip through coral heads.  After making it through, we rounded the island and anchored at Gun Point. The next day, Captain James from Spanish Wells came aboard and after we moved the boat…

Sweet Visit to Eleuthera Bahamas

With a slight break in the wind, we said goodbye to Little Harbor and were back in the open ocean…Captain on… Captain off, Richard on and headed down to Eleuthera, the middle island in the Bahamas. I must say that this was my most challenging day of travel and I was “horizontal” for the 10…

South to Little Harbor

There is only one direction to go in the Bahamas when you start in the Abacos…south!  We left Hope Town, the morning after a sweet date night with the Captain, for a quick trip down to Little Harbor, a quiet hurricane hole to wait out the windy weather…again.  We have enjoyed the Abaco islands to…

South to Hope Town We Go!

Glassy waters on Friday morning gave us the thumbs up to head south to Hope Town on Elbow Cay, perfect name for the shape of the island. Richard and I biked the island…a good 5+ miles. And the nice thing about the Abaco islands is that in many places you can see the ocean on…

Hiking from one side to the other

With the wind down, we left Green Turtle and traveled to a few islands to the north. Powell Cay, first stop.  We anchored off the beach, dinghied ashore, and followed the signs. We hiked up to the bluff first over looking the boat. We passed these heart shaped pods with seeds. Next, we traveled across…

Bluff House Marina on Green Turtle Cay

Wednesday, 5/17 So here is a map/picture of the northern end of Green Turtle Cay and the places we are exploring. Let the adventures begin!  We arrived in light winds, but a week of windy weather is upon us. Less boat adventures mean more land exploration and there is lots of beautiful land here.  Jon,…

On our way again!

Friday, May 12, 2017 ~ At sunrise this morning, we cleaned up, packed up, fueled up and said our “see ya soon’s” to all our friends at Palm Coast Marina. Goodbye, Palm Coast! Hello ICW! (IntraCoastal Waterway) We will travel south to Lake Worth, 200 miles at 8mph = 25 hours from Friday – Sunday! Our…

L.I.F.E. ~ Living In Faith Everyday

Living on the water for us is still a lot of LIFE!  Yes, my mornings are AMAZING… my favorite time of the day, but in life you still have laundry, garbage, grocery shopping, etc. I still read aloud to Jonathan and we are on Book 2 of a new series called Adventurers Wanted. Our plan to leave…

Happy New Year, 2017!

I know, it is February! I am definitely in the slow lane living aboard our boat. The day after Thanksgiving, David, Jonathan and I traveled together to Nashville, to be with Andrew and Mara, while Tania and Mia traveled to Romania for her sister’s wedding.  We were welcomed warmly. While Tania  was gone and Andrew…

Fall is here!

Some things have quickly returned to normal after the hurricane.  Washed out roads… repaired! Lost, floating items (Picnic tables, benches and pilings) we have helped retrieve out of the ICW. And the dolphins have returned! We had the joy of helping Covenant Presbyterian Church in St. Augustine restore the landscape that was altered by the…

In HIS Hands

First of all, thank you all for your prayers!  Hurricane Matthew has passed and the news on TV will reveal to you all the horrible things left in his wake, but not me.  I will show you GOD’s amazing faithfulness in our lives and to HIM will I give all the thanks and praise. Last Wednesday, we…
