  1. I recently found your blog and just completed reading it from start to finish over several days. I was entertained by how similar our stories were from dream through the Eastern Caribbean. We had a very similar story but ten years prior to yours, leaving Kemah, TX in 2005, traveling up the East Coast for a summer, then to the Bahamas for a winter, back to the East Coast for a summer, then through the Bahamas and to Grenada, and then spending most of the next seven years in the Eastern Caribbean. Our plan was never to go past the Caribbean and admire those who chose the big jump to the South Pacific. We had friends from Kemah in that timeframe who made the jump and are still in French Polynesia. They’re about 20 years into their 4-year circumnavigation plan. Maybe you ran across Steve and Lili on Liward?
    I enjoyed your comments on finding good hamburger in the Caribbean. We spent 18 months managing the bar at Clarke’s Court Bay Marina in Grenada (before it got purchased and turned into a boatyard), and given the lack of good burgers, we started a very popular weekly burger night for cruisers. I cooked between 50 and 75 burgers every Wednesday.
    We reached the point of not thoroughly enjoying anymore in 2014, and sold the boat in the BVI (big mistake) and later it was destroyed at Nanny Cay by hurricane Irma.
    We transitioned to the full-time RV world and a 40-foot diesel pusher and have been land-yacht cruising the USA since. Still living in a 12v world.
    Be safe and enjoy!

    • Hello Chris,
      Thank you for the kind comments about the blog. How funny that our travels are similar. We are happy to hear you are still exploring.
      Land, sea, air, rail….to us it does not matter how we travel. Our goal is to see the places we want to see and spend as much time in each place as we can or want. We hope you continue to enjoy your adventures as well.
      Best regards.

  2. Hi Mark and Cindy,
    I enjoy your regular posts.
    I noticed your comments about the seaweed problem in New Zealand. Exotic caulerpa is a serious issue which the country is grappling with.
    Here is some background information for you:

      Thanks Geoff. I still find it hard to believe that the New Zealand government would threaten people with jail over seaweed. Even more so now I’ve read your article about how the seaweed can migrate due to storm activity. It even goes on to say the seaweed existed at Great Barrier Island several years before being discovered a couple of years ago. Weren’t boats anchoring there that entire time without it spreading? The RNZ is very cautious with their wording, like saying Its spread is most significantly thought to be caused by people. Isn’t it inevitable the seaweed will eventually spread? I don’t claim to know more than the marine biologists but I do think people shouldn’t be jailed over seaweed.
