Wow, hard to believe we are leaving

First fall of snow today. Must be time to head south.

So what have we been doing?

  • Left our jobs. What! are you crazy?
  • Sold our house, settlement is 19th December. In this market!
  • Boys have found an appartment in Catonsville, and will move in on December 13th.
  • Shipped all our stuff in a 40ft container to Sydney.
  • Donated a ton of stuff.
  • Elliot is doing a great job selling the rest of the stuff. He has 2 great Honda's for sale.
  • Preparing Bristol Rose ready to leave. This will continue for the remainder of our cruise. Staying ship shape is a never ending job.
So tomorrow, at noon, we will leave our new friends at Ferry Point and look forward to meeting new and old friends along the way. We will be doing our first all night sail, getting into Norfolk, Thursday morning. From there, we will head down the ICW, or the ditch, all the way to Florida.
Stay tuned.


  1. good luck! hope to see you on the ICW soon ...

  2. Congratulations on making your dreams a reality. Sounds pretty cold how far south do you have to go to get warm weather. Fantastic that you sold the house and that the boys are all organised. All you need to do now is relax and enjoy yourselves.

    Love Dorothy and Michael

  6. Thanks wowgolds, think we'll pass on your offer.

    Dorothy, Michael, We'll have to travel over 600 miles to find warm weather, 66 and cloudy now in St. Augustine, FL and 75 in Miami. Miami is about 4 weeks away! It's 52 and sunny in Belhaven, NC. Spending the night and taking the golf cart to the supermarket shortly.
    Next stop Oriental, NC about 45 nmiles.
