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!

in this lovely shot a Jonesville neighbor shows off the boa he just killed...he found it with a small deer half in and half out of its jaws. yum, yum. we've heard lots of stories of neighbors waking up to find big snakes on board their boats (they get blown offshore and slither up anchor chains!) but it hasn't happened to us yet. which is fine, really.

The fans are screaming for something to replace the boa, with more news, and less snakes.
