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!

Yes of course it is good for us, it gives us that extra iron we are needing. We are mostly vegetarians these days........

Merry Christmas, Happy Engagement Anniversary, and Happy New Year! It's like you have made it across the board game- back to homebase Roatan- where it all started! Jer and I are cozied up at my folk's place in New Mexico where we are completely snowed in, record-breaking winter storm- meanwhile it's more snow than we've seen in Duluth in awhile. We're starting to get a little cabin fever, reminded of what boat life feels like, minus the turquoise waters.
Be well and please find better sources of protein.
love ves n jer (and little peanut on board)

It seems to me that they are saying heating is a different process than cooking, which means I still don't know how to cook, I only know how to heat. If I could learn to throw the soup in a dish with crackers on top and bake it, then I'd be a cook. Or is it a baker?

It is really easy. The trick to casserole is tuna fish outta a can. Just heat it up. Don't forget the egg noodles.
