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 day we rented a little moto and rode around the island...twice!! the beaches were gorgeous and deliciously unspoiled...but the real highlight was feasting on the local black crab. It's a type of land crab that's found only in Providencia and nearby San Andres. Its tendency to eat fruits high up in the hills makes the meat sweet and succulent....we found a restaurant (on the capitan's recommendation) that served it to us four different ways. providence indeed. Posted by Picasa
