Great Bridge Virginia

Great weather, looking like a whole week of light winds 10-15kts, seas are forecast to be 3 feet or less, mostly 1-2'. I usually double the forecast, shoreline effects, currents and local winds all impact. so we are expecting 2-4', in the ocean the interval should be about 9 seconds, let's hope I am right and we will make a speedy passage to Florida. Tied up at the free dock between the lock and Great Bridge, Virginia.

Y Tube

Thanks to those who suggested Y Tube, that was super easy.  You just might have to put up with their ads, guess somebody has to pay for it. Hope y'all enjoyed the clip.


A Taste of Cuba

Thursday, October 23, 2014


Looks like blogger and FB will not let us post video. We need to prove we own the material!  Go figure the guys in suits (legal) are really running the show. And they just cannot have any fun unless they are billing you.

New Adventure!

Well yes I have not forgotten to post more on our last adventure (soon as I figure out how to post a video) but we are about to start the next one. So follow along. When we looked for a boat this was the cruise we were planning as a starter. Test ourselves and our vessel at sea, then decide what we would want to do next.

We are at Spring Cove, Solomon's, MD on the Chesapeake, Scotty and Katie have been getting us ready for a 3+ year adventure "deep south" as Scotty calls it. Very new for us, finally we have the freedom to really use the boat, go "down island". Got some great coaching from Paul & Karin, "Dream Weaver" boils down to "just do it".

We plan to leave early am. Talk to you soon.

Stand by, I just found the "post video" button!

Catch Up Time

OK, sorry followers. I got lazy, complacent etc. Blogging from my tablet is not that friendly, the APP has changed again, might get better. Cuba was an experience, I will post more on that. Following Cuba we did a quick trip to Abaco via Miami, Then an interesting trip north to the Chesapeake, off shore except for an 8 hour diversion to "sleep" in Wrightsville  due to storms and water spout warnings. Then back out around the cape to Hampton where we cleared back in from the Bahamas. Next stop Onancock,  where we "stumble" on the Woodards, "The Good Life".  Bang on the hull, yep they are up and away we all go into town for breakfast and a catch up. Following that we head to Pocomoke, visit our good friends Ray & Bonnie "Cracker Jack" and Arthur & Eloise. From Pocomoke we have a wonderful 2 week cruise to Solomon's. The boat gets hauled and stored, we go home.  Another story. Talk again soon.
