Dog fun in the Ragged Islands

Having dogs aboard gives us an excuse to make multiple trips per day to the sugar white beaches in the Raggeds. Well, some of the beaches aren’t pristine, but the dogs love them just the same. Tugboat and Sailor send their love to their friends back in the states… Please follow and like us:


The Aftermath of Hurricane Irma

We’ve never been to the Ragged Islands before, so we really can’t offer a Before/After comparison, but walking through Duncan Town, the only settlement in the Ragged Islands, your heart aches for those that lived and raised their families here. Before Irma there were around 200 people living in the Ragged Islands, almost all of […]


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, […]

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

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, […]
