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!

uh......where'd everybody go?

hi again, back in Bocas, just said goodbye to Nancy, sitting here in our hot little cabin trying to remember what it is we do around here....something about sail-ing? it has been a whirlwind, immensely enjoyable three weeks of hosting friends and then Nancy, checking out parts of Panama we never would have seen if it weren't for them, celebrating various anniversaries, birthdays, and milestones and catching up with real live human friends and family (so much better than e-mail!). we've gotten terrifically spoiled, though - we will slowly transition back to canvaswork, dissecting the boat's electrical some more, feasting on ramen and tunafish.

Thanks again Jen, Avesa and Nancy for being so generous with your time and your resources, showing us such a good time, bringing us American goodies and being such incredibly flexible guests!

Now it's time for some photos, if I can get them sorted out.....
