We had some work to do concerning our Airbnb’s which we own in St Pete and at St Pete beach so we figured, why drive there when our happy home on the water can just take us there.  As always, just letting go of the ropes and sailing off into the sunset at will, resonat...

Oh boy…with this virus heating up again in Florida and the sand cloud from the Sahara Desert looming like an episode of The Mummy, we decided to get out of town yet again and head for Boca Grande for a week.

We love that we can anchor there with the tiny beach at our st...

We left the Ten Thousand Islands to come home for a few set appointments and restrictions were still in place so we decided to head out again for a week or so before things get too busy in our business  

We brought our 6 year old grandson Jax, along with us for the firs...

After two days of messing around with inoperable batteries, we finally stood together to start the engines as we held our breaths collectively and they roared on at first shot! It was 5pm on Friday but we were actually due to leave on Wednesday.   But, as always, I bel...

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.  
We decided to get off the dock and at least get so St Pete...

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...

We will take this week to retrace our path back home to Tampa.  Leaving Key West was bitter sweet...yes we LOVE being there, but being forced to stay in one place for ten days when we had others to go to,  left us wishing we had more time out on the hook.  We left Satu...

We left the shores of Marathon at 8 am on the dot.  Traveled back under the 7 mile bridge and continued through crystal clear blue green waters to our anchorage for the day and night at

Johnston Key, instead of going straight to Key West.  Shaun fished, I painted, did s...
