Get This Party Movin'

The great thing about cruising with friends is that everyone can move their homes to a new location and once arrived you already know your neighbors.  But first, you need to coordinate a plan...

A hearty breakfast does a sailor good!

    Frank&Ems, we took a final swing through G-Town and had hopes we'd see you but are glad to know you had already moved on with your explorations. We had a blast in the Bahamas this season! We have moved on to Providencia...stories soon to follow! Have fun moseying!

    Love keeping in touch with all that you've done. We moved up to the Abacos, had to make a couple of unexpected trips home, and just did the overnight to Ft. Pierce getting in this afternoon. Back in the US. We will take our time moseying through spring in the south and get back in the Chesapeake in May. Thinking of you guys lots and love the way you are getting everything you can out of your travels! Always look forward to hearing about your latest locations.
