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!

another Belize first was actually catching edible fish! Between that and all the conch, we´ve been eating like kings for the last couple weeks: mackerel tacos, red snapper marinated in ginger, soy sauce and peppers, conch fritters, fish chowder.......yum.........

the tasty lobsters of Belize, however, eluded capture. too smart or just too fast? we´ll never know. we sure did have fun trying though....we spent an entire afternoon just harassing the same two poor lobsters at Turneffe. We thought our homemade lobster-grabbing device was pretty hot until we actually tried it. Who knew the little buggers could jet around so damn fast? how do people do it?
