Heading South

We are on our way to San Diego to visit Deb's Dad and do a bit of Etchells sailing with Andrew Whittome. 

We drove through LA yesterday and it was 84 degrees!!

Time Out

Sorry for the lack of updates recently. 

Debbie and I are taking a bit of a break from boats and blogging.  

Our tenants in California have left, and we are in California for a while to get the house ready for the next set of tenants. 

Once the house is ready, we will most likely head back to Florida, and then back to the boat for another season in the Med. 

This year we hope to visit Sicily, Greece, and Turkey. 

Let us know when you will be visiting!!

Depressing and Cold

Jim Gregory 

Still Here!

We've been very quiet lately. 

I'll try to fill in some details from the past month over the next few days. 

We've just finished a week in the BVIs onboard Gibb Kane's new boat. 

Today we fly to California to visit family and friends.

Amazing Night Sky

From time to time while on passages, I talk about how amazing the sky full of stars is when you are far from all of lands sources of light pollution. 

I am always struggling to describe what it really looks like. 

Well, maybe I've solved that problem. 

It looks like this. (Without the letters!)

Update from Puerto Rico

I am just checking in from onboard Gibb Kane’s fantastic Swan 66 in Marina Puerto Del Rey, Puerto Rico.  We arrived from Spain just over a week ago, and my plans are to stay here until just prior to Christmas when Deb and I will charter a boat in the British Virgin Islands for the Christmas/New Years Holidays.  We have family joining us and are really looking forward to that time.

Between now and then, Deb (joining me today) and I will need to keep ourselves amused in Puerto Rico.  I’m sure I’d be shot if I complained too much, but after the last six months, Puerto Rico is not going to make the top of my list.  In fact, last week I found some cheap flights to St. Martin (a favorite of mine) and jumped over there for three days of fun.

The pictures below are from that side trip…
