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).

Viva Mexico.....

Hi everybody from Isla Mujeres! We arrives here two days ago after a couple weeks of blissed-out island exploration in Belize and Southern Mex....wow! I will try and get some pictures and Belize stories up here tonight as time and connectivity allows...in the meantime the report is this: we are outta here tomorrow morning bound for, drum roll please, Key West USA. so you'll forgive us if we spend our last night in Mexico enjoying the street meat and cold cervezas instead of typing away for long! It's a gorgeous afternoon here in the turquoise anchorage at Isla Mujeres....we were here six years ago for Allen's 30th and it's just as charming as it was then; in fact, the poisonous development that generally spreads outward from Cancun has still spared this place for the most part. And it's such a joy to be back in Mexico...there's no place like it! We're loving this brief fling with the land of tacos al pastor, tamale ladies on trikes, poc-chuc, Sol with a lime......

we love you, Mexico!
