A Complete 180

A Complete 180

I promised you an update. Cutting to the chase, we are staying in Utah. After driving back and forth to CA multiple times, we realized that it was more than we wanted to do in order to see our kids twice a month. As hard […]

Buying a Boat… Again.

Buying a Boat… Again.

Remember how much I didn’t like this process before? Yeah… I still don’t like it. It’s exhausting and an emotional rollercoaster. After sailing Magic Feather, we were in love. But our head and logic couldn’t forget Kalimba in Long Beach. Magic Feather had the love […]

Vancouver and Magic Feather

Vancouver and Magic Feather

After our disaster of a weekend looking at boats in California, we were not entirely looking forward to traveling to Canada to look at another boat. Not that there was anything wrong with it, but having the last boat sold out from under us really […]

Common Courtesy, Not So Common

Common Courtesy, Not So Common

This weekend we learned that you can’t buy decency (Thank you for the quote, Steven) Friday afternoon, I was browsing Facebook, as I do, when I came across a boat shared to a sailing group that I am in. A 39’ Yorktown, listed for $16k. […]

Boat “Adventures”: Part 1

All growing up, I spent time on boats with my parents. And during that time we had many many… “adventures”. Whether it was running out of gas in the middle of Lake Powell and having to manually tow the boat to shore, or getting stuck […]

Beauty on Board

Beauty on Board

Anyone that know me, knows that I am kind of a girly girl. I like doing my hair and makeup and looking pretty. When we moved aboard, I went a little nuts with removing products from my makeup and beauty routine. Either because the container […]

Just a quick one today

Just a quick one today

As you know, we try not to have too much food waste. Which means when we get green onions at the store, after we use the tops, we put the white parts with the roots in a cup of water so they can continue to […]

Rough Seas

The last couple of days have been rough. Actually, they have been downright hellish. So awful that’s it’s hard to even write it out cause I get frustrated with it all over again. But we learned some lessons. Always learning. Lesson 1. Leash the dog […]
