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!

we've passed under - and through - so many cool bridges on this trip....some lift up, some swivel, some rise up, one was even on pontoons and just floated on out of the way! Some have required intricate timing; other are open all the time. The funniest part was how many times we stopped rush hour traffic and made dozens of cars wait ten minutes just so lil' old Ute could pass on through. too fun!
