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!

St Augustine - ah, there used to be a restaurant called "Cowboys" off in the marsh between St. Augustine and Jacksonville. They served the best and most varied oysters ever eaten anywhere. Fried, steamed, raw, and huge trays of them. Would be curious to know if it is still there. If you find someone to ask- would you? Sounds Like the ICW would be fun to spend time seeing. Will call you tomorrow - fun to be able to call at most any time. Hugs, nmc
