  • 12/11/18--07:21: A Day by the Sea
  • “Vicinity to the sea is desirable, because it is easier to do nothing by the sea than anywhere else.” —E.F. Benson

    Our weather in south Texas has been dreary and cold lately, but today we were given the gift of a beautiful day. I guess we appreciate them more when they are harder to come by. We spent the day with our friends John and Janice at their beach house at Indianola. Their house sits on the point, the inlet of Powderhorn Lake on one side and Matagorda Bay on the other. It's a spectacular place to watch dolphins play, try your luck at fishing, birdwatch or just relax. It was a wonderful day...with a breathtaking sunset to finish it off.

  • 12/20/18--06:20: Merry Christmas
  • “Whatever you do, live a life of adventure and meaning so brilliant that, like a Roman candle, it lights up the world. Dazzle us. Astonish us. Be extraordinary.” —President George H.W. Bush

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year...2018 was another wonderful year and we feel blessed to enjoy the life we have. We're fortunate to be able to spend six months a year in upstate New York and six months in's the best of both worlds. In both places we get to enjoy being on the water and the company of our family.

    Stan and I both keep logs of information about our travels. Mine are more about the places we've been and the places we've stayed, his are more technical (engine hours, maintenance etc.). For information on where we've docked and anchored, please refer to my Travel Logs. This year we took two short trips from Ithaca. We spent two weeks traveling west on the Erie Canal and almost three weeks in the the Thousand Islands. Not as many miles as we use to put under the keel...but an adventure just the same. The totals below are from the time we left home in 2011 till the end of 2018.

  • 12/30/18--06:13: Looking Back at 2018
  • “Sometimes it is the people no one can imagine anything of who do the things no one can imagine.” –Alan Turing

    In January we decided to get away from our cold wet winter in Texas. We headed to Costa Rica for ten days of relaxation and adventure.

  • 01/01/19--05:52: Happy New Year 2019
  • "The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals." —Melody Beattie

    Happy New Year...I hope 2019 brings happiness, health and adventure to all of you. The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to reflect on where we've been, the things that are important to us and what we'd like to achieve in the future. With each passing year the months seem to pass faster than the year before and it's hard to imagine how so many years and wonderful events have past so quickly. We look forward to the new adventures and events of the coming year. I hope it brings nothing but good things to all our friends and family.

    “And then there is the most dangerous risk of all — the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.” – Randy Komisar

    Last year I did a blog post about traveling...what it is and how it makes a person feel. Traveling is life, it's unpredictable, it's freedom, it's like a drug – the more you travel the more you want to travel, it's the exploring of new places, having no limits and being who you want to be. All those statements are very true for Stan and myself, so it's time for a little adventure, a little walking on the beach, a little relaxation and most of all the exploring of somewhere new.
