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!

Belize it or not, we're here

so we made it to Belize and it's gorgeous...we love it! spent a couple days at Tom Owens Cay, then a night at Hunting Cay, and checked into Placencia today. Having a ball. Belize ir very organized, and with that comes the inevitable sticker shock of U.S.-like prices, but so far that's our only objection.

We're in the process of assessing just HOW paranoid we are about the oncoming hurricane season, which will in turn influence our decisions about how long we spend in Belize, Yucatan, etc. stay tuned. in the meantime, we're living the life.

Having crew on board is wonderful. especially when said crew does stuff like making pancakes and fruit salad while we're underway. we should have thought of this earlier!!

more soon, UTE
