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!

we saw tons of oropendolas and their beautiful hanging nests, a fave sight......we also were lucky enough to see manikins, doves, ibises, tanagers, herons, dozens of beautiful tropical birds....but those were pretty much impossible to get pictures of!

Is it possible to bring back a hanging next? Just curious if you can find one. I am coming back for the month of October - of course that will mean you are supporting me for the future because the school system will be replacing me. The dart frogs are too much fun. Don't eat them please. hugs miss you muchly. nmc
