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!

one of the best things about having the girls here was .....glancing up at the same old foredeck while underway and seeing two of our best friends! what a treat!

due to the preponderance of electrical storms here in Bocas- both the in-the-sky kind and the in-Ute's-wiring kind - we didn't do much sailing or snorkeling, but we did cruise over to Bastimentos and enjoy a few peaceful nights anchored out there. Avesa, who had her heart set on snorkeling, never complained once about the grey skies, and even serenaded us on Allen's ukelele.

really, we just spent the whole visit yakking anyway, so the rainy weather didn't matter much.....
