St. Charles, MO to St. Petersburg, FL (Sept. 25 to Nov. 11, 2014)

  Before we got back to Port Charles, we had noticed that the bow thruster sounded kind of sick and the batteries were showing low voltage.  Joe was concerned that the battery charger and the batteries for it had gone kaput.  The charger…

St. Charles, MO to Mississippi River end of Navigation and back (Aug 15 to Sep 25)

It was finally time to leave Port Charles Harbor, so Young America and Carolyn Ann headed out.  The high water, carrying lots of debris, that we saw when we arrived had passed on by.  As a matter of fact, we were concerned that the water mi…

Peoria, IL to St. Charles, MO (July 12 to August 14)

The IVY Club was a great stop for us.  We got a car from Enterprise and drove to Abingdon, IL where Joe’s aunt Kay is currently living in a nursing home – after several broken bones and two hip replacements.  She corrected Joe on her age …

Tonawanda, NY to Peoria, IL (June 18 to July 11, 2014)

We had arrived in Tonawanda before noon and scheduled a one day Enterprise rental.  We had hoped to do some laundry (only $1/load for each machine) and pump-out.  When we arrived, no dock attendant was there and everything was locked up – and…

Solomons, MD to Tonawanda, NY (April 29 to June 17)

Our next stop was Bruce and Joan’s dock on Gingerville Creek in Annapolis.  It was sad to see the empty dock as we arrived, but at least we knew that Forever 39 had gone to a good home; having become Janet and Jerry’s boat At Last.  It’s alwa…

New Bern, NC to Solomons, MD (Mar 20, to Apr 27,2014)

After some careful weather watching, Joe decided that Thursday, March 20 was the day to leave Northwest Creek Marina in New Bern.  It was in the 40’s as we cast the lines off.  Who knew that we would consider that a reasonable temperature.
&…

Kilmarnock, VA to New Bern, NC (October 2013)

After a last dinner on Carolyn Ann with Tom and Doris, we left Chesapeake Boat Basin and cruised down to Hampton Maritime Center.  We’d stopped there in the spring and joined their preferred customer club – which would give us reduced dockage ra…

Pasadena, MD to Kilmarnock, VA (September 2013)

We stayed at Bob and Elaine’s dock on the Magothy River just north of Annapolis over Labor Day weekend to avoid all the crazies that tend to take to waters on such holidays.  We could see and hear quite a group of them at Dobins Island across th…
