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).

after a couple days of tropical living Ute-style - Marti never complained about rice and beans, Tang and rum cocktails, the fussy outboard, or her 24-inch-wide-bed - we graduated to a lush land lifestyle......

I could definitely get used to the high life. definitely. Allen took a little more coaxing but Putters the Cat really helped it along.

Tank is a relative of Pau kitty the Hawaiian cat in Allen's life. Probably said this before. Cora, the black dress is quite beautiful - well you are. Am off as of today for a week's r & r. Intend to enjoy it thoroughly. Hugs to you both. Hope the weather is mild and you aren't staying up all night with the boat. hugs nmc
