Junkanoo, Beach Church and Hikes

What is a "Junkanoo" you might ask? It's a big wow of a parade in the Bahamas featuring music, dance, floats, and elaborate costumes. The custom may have started when descendants of slaves celebrated holidays around Christmas time. Traditionally they are scheduled December 26 (Boxing day) or January 1. This year it was on a...

December in the Bahamas

Sun, sand, water and wildlife make for a brilliant December! Our average highs were 80 and average lows were 72 and very few rain showers. No, I didn't miss the cold and snow one little bit but it did feel a little strange seeing Santa and Mrs. Claus visit Unforgettable via dinghy! On our way... Continue Reading →

Solomons, MD to Chub Cay, Bahamas

After the Kadey Krogen rendezvous we high-tailed it southward hoping to avoid as much of the cold as possible. We met up with friends in Chesapeake, VA then buddy boated with Way To Go, Changing Course, and Tuscan Sun. A fun time was had in Manteo, and River Dunes marina in Oriental where we toured...

Happy Fifth Anniversary!

Not our wedding anniversary...our anniversary of moving onto the boat! What an exciting day it was! I had no qualms at that time about doing what some people would call crazy or scary and I've been happy every single second since. Even when I am seasick! I hope we have many more years together on... Continue Reading →

The Glorious Days of Summer

We didn't spend much time boating in July and early August but we spent a lot of quality time with family. When we arrived in Solomon's Island we had a blast with my girls, Cassandra and Allegra, as well as her boyfriend, Brandon. My girls do not like me to take pictures of them, even...

Southport, NC to Solomon’s Island, MD

After exploring downtown Southport we had a beautiful off-shore day cruise to one of our favorite anchorages... Cape Lookout. Our first morning there were were entertained for hours by dozens of dolphins feeding. These very active mammals were much smaller than the bottlenose dolphins that we usually see. Not only did they come up for... Continue Reading →

Finally…we’re underway!

I'm giddy with excitement to be back on the water!!! Although we didn't plan an extended marina stay there are some definite advantages to marina life which made life easier for the 7 months we stayed in Stuart: No salt encrusted windows and outside surfaces, unlimited water, a car for errands, Wifi and a few...
