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!

Hi Cora and Allen
Sounds like it's been quite the adventure. I heard about your mom and the surgery from Nancy. I am sorry she won't be able to go to Panama.
What a beautiful sunset!!!! The aerial photo is great Looks like paradise.
Things are well here. I will attempt to send an e-mai as well as this so you can see pictures of Aiden. He's now 3 months old.
Hope things get fixed for you soon and you can take your trip. I am not sure where exactly it is located but I am guessing somewhere in Panama.
You mentioned the family from Maine that writes the books. How long have they been doing this stuff? Hold old were the kids when they started?
Enjoy yourselves.
Nancy
