Bye Baby!

Hi All!

Said good-bye to our baby INTERLUDE.  She is leaving today to head to her new home in Charleston, SC.  Even though it is a sad day, I am happy that she will be heading back to the Bahamas this year with her new owners.  They are going to keep her name!  Yay!  They are great people and I know they will take great care of her!


One last hug for my girl! What a great time we have had on her. When we started out I thought we may do the Bahamas thing a couple of years. Certainly didn’t think it would be nine years!

We watched INTERLUDE leave the marina.  As she was leaving, she said good-bye to PRETTY PENNY the catamaran in front of her.  She belonged to Bob and Penny who we met in the Bahamas and have been our friends ever since.  PP was sold this year too!

Well that is it for now!  Hope all is well with you and yours!  Thanks for stopping by!

Trading Places – Bye Bye INTERLUDE, Hello Winnie!

Hi All!

With much sadness we sold our lovely gal INTERLUDE.  She took us to so many wonderful places and always got us home safely.  I am really going to miss her. Lots of tears have been shed but our new adventure begins!

Our home away from home. Actually we spent much more time on INTERLUDE than at our land home!

We bought a Winnebago Adventurer 33V Class A Motorhome.  We plan to take “Winnie” to the southwest for the winter.  Hopefully we will catch up with fellow ex-cruisers along the way…Rusty and Joy/SLOW DANCIN’, Floyd and Fran and Miss Bailey/PRIOR TIES and Frank and Patti/DREAM WEAVER.  All of us plan to see each other (if not sooner) in Quartzsite, AZ in January/February.  Quartzsite is a mega-RV event in the desert…now that should be interesting!

We purchased Winnie in New Jersey and drove her home.


Our new land yacht! Taking our new gal back to Virginia to get her ready for her winter adventure!

Just bought our tow car today.  They are called dinghies or TOADs.  We were lucky to find a very nice little car close to us.  Now we have to buy a tow dolly and we are all set!


Yep! The TOAD is a PT Cruiser!

We have been working on WINNIE for a few weeks…bath, wax, clean up, etc.  Now we are ready to load her up with all the essentials and hope to begin our trip south/southwest in late November.  Wish us luck!

Drop by and share with us our new adventure!  Keep in touch!  We will always keep a light on for you!
