We left our shores at 9ish and headed around the corner from the marina to the dinghy dock to refill.  We weren’t even out of our channel yet and our dolphins came to escort us out. Dave the fuel guy met us there with his tanker truck and it worked out well to fill up...

Oh boy, it has been FAR too long since Happy Wife left our shores, six months in fact!  We have been away on vacation twice during this time and then with the holidays and such, time has just marched on.

When your best friend visits from South Africa, our first priority is to float away with her!  We hadn't seen our dear Philaine in almost two years since her husbands, and our best friend Stephen's passing.  She landed on on June 12th and we left the marina at lunch ti...

Happy Wife would be making her debut in the Keys today!  We were thrilled to come with our home this time around. We have visited almost every year since living in the States, but this would be a first for us. We left at 8 am sharp and excitedly took photos as we enter...

We woke to a windy but sunny morning.  We were a bit hesitant with the direction of the wind and choppy water so Shaun called Towboat USA to check the conditions. We were contemplating running the inside rather than go out into the open ocean.  He advised us to go the...

We made our way to Marco Island today having started the day checking our generator which had, gone out again in the night!. Shaun cleaned it out and checked the impeller but it still doesn't sound quite right.  We pulled up anchor and left our Darling Ding anchorage a...

We reached our anchorage at Tween Waters around 11.15 and settled in for the next few days thankful for the stunning weather and calm seas that we have been gifted with.

After a little research we decided to have lunch at The Green Flash which has a drive up dock.  They...
