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!

conched out in Guanaja


a couple days ago we got our first conchs....so delicious! and so much easier to prepare than we thought they would be....this is definitely the start of a very yummy friendship. Provided we can get used to them staring at us with their weird alien stalk eyes while we are killing them, that is. But hey, unless you're a true vegetarian, you better be able to look your food in the face, right?

After the first one we sort of got the knack of extracting them from their shells..... Posted by Picasa

So what do conch taste like and am not sure I would like there little eyes looking at me. Guess if I eat lobster, conch would be o.k. So are you saving conch shells? Hugs. nmc
