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!

crabby and proud of it!





















alright, so we still haven't left shelter bay....Hebe finally got in this morning from the canal AND it was thunderstorming all morning so how could we leave? we're hoping tomorrow will be the day. at this rate we're spending all the cash we earned making the sailcover, but hey, at least we're breaking even. that's good.

it was great to have Tim and Ariel here today.....we played Risk, then went for a nice long jungle walk and got to hear all about their transit. Hard to believe both boats are finally in the Caribbean! nice work Hebe.

Just enjoyed a dinner of sweet succulent crab followed by piping hot brownies. the boys caught AND cooked the crabs right here at the marina. I have to admit I was amazed at how delicious they were. may this be just the beginning of our living off the land here on the Atlantic side!
