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!

changing of the guard

...and just like that the girls were gone and Nancy was here. it all happened too fast for our walnut-sized brains to keep up with, but we hung on for the ride and it was a fun one.

we spent a few days in Panama city with Nancy, taking her to our fave joints and showing her the sights. she caught Canal history fever much the same way we did back in April, so we had a fun time of it.

it was neat to visit the Miraflores locks and see them from above...and to be one of the spectators we've waved at from the locks.
