Ed and Connie

The last two days we’ve been at Shipwright Harbor Marina in Deale MD.  This is home port to Ed and Connie who we met last summer in Reedville VA when we and they on their sailboat “Surprise” were socked in at Reedville by storms for…

Tilghman Island and the Lost Pooch

We stayed at Tilghman on the Chesapeake for two days, a lovely marina for a nice housing development.  Great pool – finally cool water – especially good since it was 102-degrees.  Our days were like this – walk/run in the morning after gettin…

Kingston to Picton

It continues to be just brutally hot so we left Confederation Basin in Kingston rather early in an attempt to catch cool sea breezes on Lake Ontario. As we headed west we travelled along the channel north of Prince Edward County which is a large island…

Radiate Everything You Are.

I’m just waiting for Captain Cautious to keelhaul me for this one.Love it or hate it, this is a minor personal alteration that I’ve wanted to make for ages, and indeed with its sea-pup theme was originally planned for around the launch of our tug l…

Keep Calm and Carry On.

As promised, here’s a (bit blurred, sorry) snap or two of that oak ceiling, the one that I decided the installation of which would cheer me up. It worked. The wheelhouse ceiling is now 99.9% complete, requiring just the final cut pieces on each side,…

Elizabeth City to Cobb Island, MD (July 5 – 15 )

The 4th of July in Elizabeth City had been a great stop. Well, the band could’ve stopped playing a little earlier but I’m sure lots of folks were enjoying it. The plan was to ask for a 7:30am lift of the Elizabeth City bridge so we could go north via t…

PuddleJump parties and Mo’orea

We started 3 days of PuddleJump parties on Friday night in downtown Papeete. Emily had a sail on an outrigger canoe and we picked up our free tee shirts and other information about the Society islands. About 70 boat crews were paraded through town be…

Martello Towers and Fort Henry

As we approached Kingston and our slip at Confederation Basin we could not help but notice several large round block structures with a hint of painted wood near the top and pointy roofs. At first they looked like the round red barns of Indiana but upo…

Travels of The Rose 2010-07-07 15:38:00

We don’t have a “Bucket List”, but there is a list of things we want to accomplish. Being on The Rose in Bristol for the 4th of July is certainly near the top of the, ”to-do” list for both of us. Fortunately, the weather was looking…
