Grocery Shopping Adventures

Written by Brandy Wednesday 12/6/17 Most of the day was pretty boring from an outsider’s perspective.  I worked on my bookkeeping business and Dan and Corey looked at the stock market, played games, read and surfed the net. Basically we sat around all day not really doing much. That night Dan and I joined a couple other cruisers for dinner.  …

A Fantastic Day

Written by Brandy: The day started off like any other day.  I got up, drank my coffee, and started working on my bookkeeping business.  Who knew it was turn into a fantastic day.  Half way through the morning, I asked Dan and Corey if they wanted to see if other cruisers (people who live on their boats) wanted to go …

Another Boat Birthday

(If you visit the boat on your birthday, rest assured you’ll recognize the decorations!) I woke up at 6am with no intention at all of getting up. My first instinct was to shut off my alarm and wait for Dan and Brandy to get up. I did somehow silence it, but it went off again about 30 seconds later…thankfully. I …

A Double Feature

Thursday, August 17, 2017…according to Corey 3:30am was the wakeup call and we immediately (after coffee, of course) started getting the boat ready for departure. We were shooting for a 4:30am departure, left at 4:50am, expected the bridge adjacent to our dock to open on request, and then were told it wasn’t opening until 5:15am. Dan thought the bridge opened …

Ft. Liquordale

Saturday, August 5 – 16, 2017 We spent a week and a half in Ft. Lauderdale doing boat projects. The main reason for being in the area was because we needed to clean Maverick’s fuel injectors in another effort to rid the exhaust of the white smoke we’d been spewing. Dan and Brandy took sailing lessons on Grapevine Lake in …

Brunswick to Ft. Lauderdale (Part 3)

Friday, August 4, 2017 Podcasts occupied my time during my midnight and 6am shifts. They helped considerably in distracting my mind from my desire to sleep for the first hour, but as the second hour ticked away I kept looking at my watch more frequently as I fantasized about getting back in bed. At 6am, when I took the helm, …

Brunswick to Ft. Lauderdale (Part 2)

Thursday, August 3, 2017 Day 2 to Ft. Lauderdale …my alarm went off for my midnight shift and I shuffled up the stairs just in time to see Brandy throw up outside the cockpit. I think it was that shift. It was raining. I think it was that night. Brandy went downstairs. Dan gave me a run down of the …

Back to Brunswick

Thursday, July 27, 2017 I slept like a baby after a night of chocolate whiskey and sleeping in the A/C. We all woke up around 7:00am or so and plugged away at our respective projects. Brandy worked on some bookkeeping, I worked on a business I’m trying to startup, and Dan researched the market. The boat ran aground into the …

Change of Plans After a Change of Plans

Wednesday, July 26th, 2017 We woke up at 6am and Dan immediately checked the weather. There are supposed to be thunderstorms off the coast all afternoon. He isn’t keen on potentially battling rain, wind, waves, and an outgoing tide on our way back in, so we’ve decided to motor around a couple hours in the channels to gauge whether or …
