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!

This our neigbor Sonny, proudly displaying his harmonicas in all different keys - and man, can he play those things. Our neighbors on Queen Mary organized a music night earlier this week, and it must be confessed, we had a blast. our accordion and ukelele were dragged out of the bilge for the occasion, but the real highlight was hearing some of our neighbors play - one is a professional musician who you might have seen on Hee Haw - and I don't know about you but Hee Haw was a cultural institution in our household. Anyway, these kids could play. They were very encouraging and gracious about having us chime in wherever we could pick up the chords.....thanks guys! (OZ folks, I'm proud to say I taught them the ZooCamp pirate song about the Irish Sea.)
