Stormy’s Log

Hello, my name is Stormy and I am Uncle Jeff and Aunt Susie’s 10 year old nephew. I visited them for two weeks aboard their boat. The first day I came with Uncle Jeff on a jet flight and we had a billion delays. That part of my summer was not that fun staying at […]

Harbor Springs: A Class Act

Antarctica: December 2011

Our big adventure for this year is a trip to Antarctica. It is like no other place we have visited. This continent is the coldest, highest, driest and most inhospitable continent on Earth. It covers almost one-tenth of the earth’s surface and supports the greatest mass of ice in the world. It certainly isn’t an […]

End of the Cruising Season

Idyll Time is now resting safe and sound in a large heated warehouse where she will patiently wait for our return next spring. It is always a little heart stopping as the big fat girl is lifted out of the water. With the slings creaking and groaning as they lift the 68,000 pound lady out […]
