  • Annapolis Sailboat Show and Meetup 2023

    Annapolis Sailboat Show and Meetup 2023

    Wow, we had a blast this year at the Annapolis sailboat show – the highlight being the meetup. We’re so thankful for everyone who stopped by to chat! We have a full sailboat review coming your way…actually, it’s a three-bat comparison. We take a look at three 40-44 foot modern cruising sailboats to show off…

  • Sailboat Life in Norfolk and Portsmouth

    Sailboat Life in Norfolk and Portsmouth

    Sailboat life meets city life in the beautiful city of Norfolk, VA and the quaint town of Portsmouth. Normally, we associate sailboat life with oceans, islands, bay sailing, and tropical locations – but we discovered that living next to bustling cities can be a pleasant change of cadence! Hospital Point, A Great Place to Anchor…

  • Hughlett Point and Prentice Creek

    Hughlett Point and Prentice Creek

    Hughlett Point Natural Area Preserve and Prentice Creek combine to make one of the best places we’ve anchored so far in Chesapeake Bay! We were looking for a beach, a place to relax, and some solitude on the water – we got them all! In this blog post, we share Episode 105 and a few…

  • Simple Life in Deltaville

    Simple Life in Deltaville

    No cars, no stuff – they are long-gone and now we’re trying our hands at the simple life. Sunset, rainy day, a walk through a boat yard and a walk to lunch. Isn’t this what it’s all about? Just savoring the moments, taking in the surroundings, and living slow. I think that’s what sailboat life…

  • Our Best Sail! Sailing to Deltaville

    Our Best Sail! Sailing to Deltaville

    We’ve had storms at sea, upwind battles, and high winds – now it’s time to have our best sail yet! After leaving Hampton, VA we gybed north and sailed the Chesapeake Bay to the small little town of Deltaville, VA – absolutely cute little town. I’m not sure exactly what made this our best sail…

  • Exploring Jamestown Settlement

    Exploring Jamestown Settlement

    Sailing the James River was exciting, challenging, and calming, but now we’re in Jamestown and it’s time to explore! But it’s not an adventure without a challenge! And our first challenge was landing the dinghy. There are literally no locations to get ashore in Jamestown. There’s a beach, but it’s a public park, so no…

  • Sailing the James River

    Sailing the James River

    In this week’s YouTube video, we started our new mission of cruising the Chesapeake Bay. And what a start it was! To begin, we sailed off anchor and then sailed to Hampton Roads just outside of the Naval Shipyard in Norfolk, VA. Mind you, the engine was never turned on! Then the winds picked up…

  • Small Walk Back in Time

    Small Walk Back in Time

    Now that we’ve called off the mission to Maine (see last week’s story), we have time. Oh, precious time we love you. That means let’s go outside and explore. We’re in Great Bridge, which is an area within Chesapeake City, VA, and the forests here are beautiful with tall pines. Plus, there’s a U.S. History…

  • Calling it Quits, Great Times in Great Bridge

    Calling it Quits, Great Times in Great Bridge

    We started the mission to Maine back in June 2021, and now it’s time to make a tough call. In this episode, we try to find Mother Nature’s cadence and get in step. But some tunes are just hard to play along with. Hope you enjoy! Episode 97 We had such a great time sharing…

  • 4 Days North to Chesapeake

    4 Days North to Chesapeake

    We love going offshore – the isolation, the peace, and the challenge of the seas. So when we saw 4 days (maybe 5) of all inshore travel with limited opportunities to throw up the sails, we were… …slightly not so excited. But wow, we were wrong. This was a seriously fun stretch of sailing the…

  • Smooth Seas and Smooth Sailing in the Atlantic

    Smooth Seas and Smooth Sailing in the Atlantic

    After our previous Atlantic sail with storms at sea, we watched and waited for a calm window…maybe too calm. It was smooth seas and smooth sailing (with a bit of motoring during the 0 wind period). But hey, there were some Snickers throwing with buddy boats, a helicopter fly by, and a military encounter! All…

  • Travel in Wilmington and Carolina Beach – Places to See, Things to Do

    Travel in Wilmington and Carolina Beach – Places to See, Things to Do

    Wilmington and Carolina Beach are great places to travel to, and here are a few things to do there! Okay, we didn’t plan much when we arrived in North Carolina. We just showed up and discovered some really cool places. This post shares a few of the highlights with you. Things to Do in Wilmington…
