Changes

I know it’s been a while. I apologize. We have had a LOT going on the last month, and I haven’t been in the mood to write, or really do much of anything. But I have a minute and we are slightly settled down, so […]

The Do’s and Dont’s of Nassau, Bahamas

The Do’s and Dont’s of Nassau, Bahamas

When you think of the Bahamas, you usually imagine picturesque beaches and sunshine and palm trees, right? While we did find some beautiful beaches, we also found some downsides to the island. I’m not saying it’s awful, but just be aware when visiting Nassau. Don’t […]

Boat “Adventures”: Part 3

Boat “Adventures”: Part 3

After taking my kids home, we had plans to take some friends out for a sail. They had been with us once before, but it was December and freezing, so we were hoping to be able to give them a better experience. It all seemed […]

Boat “Adventures”: Part 1

And now, back to your regularly scheduled programming

I know I haven’t posted a new post in a while. Getting settled in has taken a lot more time and effort than I previously anticipated. And we still aren’t fully settled. Some things still haven’t found a set place on board, which means a […]

Cooking on a Boat

Cooking on a Boat

We spent another 5 days on Intrepid last week. Which meant I got to work on my cooking on a boat. Gotta say, I was pretty happy with how our meals turned out. I have found that I’m less recipe inclined on board. Not sure […]

Boat Sewing: Tiller Cover

Boat Sewing: Tiller Cover

Intrepid has a beautiful tiller. Well kept and protected… Except for the last few inches at the bottom. This is because the existing tiller cover is in pretty rough shape. The Velcro is gone, and it’s held on when we aren’t sailing by a bungee […]
