Living Large in the Exumas

The weather this year has caused some travel challenges, but we made it to the Exumas last week. Life is Good! We spent a few days in the Exuma Land & Sea Park and then headed down to Big Majors (Staniel Cay) where we’ve been anchored along with our friends Ted and Jenny (Nordhavn 47, […]

New Years Reflexions and Plans for 2018

Last week, as 2017 was coming to an end, Michelle and I were reminiscing about our first year of cruising on Roam. In a word: AMAZING! Through 5,000 miles of travel on the water, we had almost no problems with the boat, made many new friends, witnessed the awe inspiring beauty of nature, and dropped […]

We’re selling our Rigid Inflatable Dinghy!

We have two dinghies and we only have room for one, so we’re selling our 12 foot Caribe dinghy! I feel like I need to explain. During our trip this summer, the Hypalon inflatable tubes started delaminating. By that, I mean the outer layer of material started to peel off the tubes. It was mainly […]

Thoughts on Nova Scotia and Newfoundland

I wrote several posts as we cruised throughout Nova Scotia and Newfoundland this year and perhaps I’ll go back and add another post or two to highlight photographs that we feel represent the experience we had. This post, though is really meant to be a recap of our overall thoughts on cruising in Nova Scotia […]

Traveling with Pets

  Tugboat and Sailor are part of our family and travel with us, wherever we go. We often meet other travelers that tell us they gave up their pet(s) in order to¬†go cruising. Our dogs bring us so much joy on a daily basis that we can’t imagine not having them with us. To be […]

6 Months and 5,000 Miles Later…

In case you’re wondering, we’re back in Florida where we began our Roam Northern Adventure way back in May of this year. Our trip took us south to Marathon, back up to Palm Beach and then north and east to Bermuda for the America’s Cup races. In July we continued north to Lunenburg Nova Scotia, […]

Project Sunset – near Gwen Island, VA

This summer Michelle and I have seen some spectacular sunrises and sunsets and I’ve been wanting to take a time lapse with my new Nikon D7200, but I just haven’t been able to pull it off. When the conditions were right, I had other commitments, or couldn’t get set up for the right shot. I […]

Slow Ride South

  “Step on a Crack and you break your mother’s back.” That old children’s poem is stuck in my brain as we pick our way south through the lobster pots scattered across the waters of Maine. They carpet the surface, in waters from just a few feet off the shoreline to over 300 feet deep […]

Goodbye Nova Scotia…Hello Maine!

We left Lunenburg, NS unexpectedly last week and headed directly for Southwest Harbor, Maine. What I mean is, we had planned on leaving on Friday (August 25), but the weather forecast for the 32 hour passage changed and when we woke up on Thursday morning, we realized that the best day to leave was Thursday […]
