welcome to our blog!

This blog tells the story of our 22-month sailing journey from Oakland, California, to Bristol, Rhode Island, aboard our beloved Bristol 32 sailboat, Ute. Please feel free to browse through the archives (partway down the sidebar to your left) to see pics and read stories of our adventures in North America and Central America . (Sorry the first 3 months of the trip are missing - they vanished somewhere in an internet cafe in Mexico - but all you're missing is CA, Baja and Western Mex).

If you're trying to track us down now that we're landlubbers, try us at uteatlarge at yahoo dot com. Thanks!

Hey, can't you wait till after june 20, I think a female deck hand would be a good thing. This is great - the 18th of May - what good luck. Back from my vacation - great day at school. All is well. nancy

Hi guys. I typed this once and don't know where it went. I'm not great with this kind of thing. In any case Adian is a reak cutie. We are all thrilled with him. I have been to see them several times in the hospital but only once so far at home. I took Adian's great grandparents to meet him. I can see I'll have to restrain myself when I see baby clothes. I do not want to be the kind of Nanna that is always giving gifts. I just want to have him think of me as fun and loving.I wanted to send you some pictures but don't know how to do it. Maybe Allen your mom can. So you are heading through the canal soon. That should be very exciting. Will you be heading to New England? Have a great trip. I'll try and write again. Love Aunt Nancy
