Simply, we love the water, and have dreamed for years of living our lives surrounded by it.
In August, 2015 we sold everuthing we could not carry aboard and departed our beloved old city, New Orleans, Louisiana, onboard ¡Pura Vida!, our 2000 Island Packet 420 sailboat. We ventured beyond the Gulf of Mexico for the first time on our own boat.
Just leaving our usual cruising grounds was an adventure in itself – but there was so much more to learn and see out there.
In 2022 we decided that we had had enough of dodging hurricanes and enduring lightning storms during the tropical summer. We were definitely not done sailing, however. We decided to sail the tropics during the winter and spring and cruise the European canals in the summer and fall. That is when we bought our second boat, Ziggy B.
Our life will continue to be aquatic for the foreseeable future, now on two continents. We hope you enjoy our blog.
Thanks for following.
