“Go small, go simple, go now,” is a saying credited to Lin and Larry Pardey, sailors and writers, known for their small boat sailing. They have sailed over 200,000 miles together.

So … Scott and I are taking their advice. We are going now. Our plan is to cruise until we don’t like it anymore or we are ready to do something else.

Depending upon the weather, we’ll leave Shell Point at the beginning of November, taking the boat to the Tampa area for bottom paint and other maintenance. We’ll spend Thanksgiving and Christmas with family.

In January, we will head to the Florida Keys to enjoy the mild winter and prepare for a trip to the Bahamas in the spring. We plan to spend the summer in the Chesapeake and head to the Carribean in the fall.

In this blog, I’ll write about our travels, life on board, our challenges and successes.
