April 15-16, 2017: St. Augustine to Fernandina Beach, FL

We left St. Augustine on April 15 for a short trip to an anchorage off of Pine Island.  While it only took us a couple of hours to get there, we were treating it as an investment in the next day, which was to be long. 674 more words


April 10-14, 2017: St. Augustine, FL

We spent five nights on a mooring at the St. Augustine Municipal Marina.  The moorings were full pretty much the whole time we were here.  Since it’s later in the spring, the tourist traffic has picked up dramatically, and the town is bursting at the seams. 678 more words


April 7-10, 2017: Vero Beach to St. Augustine, FL

We left Vero Beach on April 7, 2017, and had an uneventful day motoring up the ICW to an anchorage in Melbourne, FL.  We have been travelling offshore for so long now that we had to get used to the ICW again.  1,002 more words

Vero Beach, March 27-April 6, 2017

We ended up staying in Vero Beach from March 27-April 6, 2017.  As one of our friends put it, we got “velcroed” but good.   We were on a mooring ball at the farthest north end of the field, and it was completely quiet and peaceful; the no see-ums could get bad at dusk, but that small inconvenience was worth the beauty.  433 more words

Waking up after 5 hours on a plane from Baltimore, Maryland to Thule, Greenland large white Pitugfik Gletscher distinguishes itself from the white sea ice by its ragged snout as the plane approaches my new home for the next 6 weeks. 698 more words


Dinner Key, Miami

We have been in Dinner Key since Feb. 21, 2017.  This was longer than planned due to some windstorms, which I’ll talk about later in this entry.  1,229 more words
