Since 1978 I have been fortunate to sail wooden boats. In 2006 I set out to find a Drascombe Longboat Cruiser for single-handed expedition sailing. This is the continuing story of how it came to be, our adventures, notes on the maritime world and other things I don't want to forget...

Today was our dog's last with us. It was time and I am glad that Chloe, Eleanor and I were all together with him. We got Blackie as a pup 13 years ago and he was the best dog anyone could have asked for. We were lucky.

Yesterday we went with friends to the St. Johns River for a Memorial Day weekend sail. Eleanor, Chloe and I aboard Annie, Linda, Hannah, and Terry on Quest and Mike on his small one-design racing sloop. The wind picked up in the afternoon and was a real romp with beautiful blue skies and the river pretty much to ourselves.

Life IS good!
