Gold Loopers 2023

We have a map but no directions, a plan but not a schedule, and a healthy dose of adjusting course as we go.

The USA is blessed with a diversity of people, culture, geography, and history. 

Amid COVID restlessness, we decided to live on a boat and see parts of the country a little off the beaten path along America’s waterways, see and learn from the locals and the community of fellow wanderers we meet along the way, and see how we face up to the challenges we certainly will have.   In April 2021, we moved aboard See Leel, our Maine Cat P47 power catamaran, in Ft. Pierce, FL and the adventure began.

Hence it is our Seefari.   

We have since completed over 12,000 nautical miles, done America’s Great Loop, transited up and down the Atlantic ICW and the Chesapeake Bay several times, seen the natural beauty of the St. John’s River in FL, and cruised the Bahamas.  And we’re still going.

Big Water Heading North by Northeast

We go back into cruising mode, heading north for the summer. The first leg is all big water — up the Chesapeake, down the Delaware, and up the Jersey Coast to NY Harbor. Retracing the same path we did two years ago almost to the day when we were doing The Great Loop. Which means there will also be lots of current Loopers to mee . But we notice it feels different this time.

Re-engaging With The ICW

It’s been an intense two months.  The first was a fast run up the coast from Florida to Virginia with nearly daily travel, made fun by traveling with friends.  Next was a busy month of appointments, projects, and happenings.  Throughout it all, we find ourselves reflecting more and moe on Life After Boat.

Under a Bahamian Spell

Part II of our time in the Bahamas. We visit Eleuthera, Spanish Wells, and spend over a week at a tucked away resort on Grand Bahama waiting out weather. Then it’s time to come out of our trance and face the return, realizing that our time in the islands had given us a bit of a philosophical shift.

Exhaling In the Exumas

From Bimini, we change our plans to accommodate the weather and go south to the Exumas, an island chain popular for its beaches, clear turquoise waters, and the Land and Sea National Park. We snorkel, do some hiking to natural wonders and funky man-made sites, and see very small town Bahama life. Along the way we find ourselves coming under the spell of the slower pace, simple living, and natural beauty.

Bimini Boppity Boo

After a lot of planning and prep, we head from Florida to the Bahamas.  After ‘the crossing’ our first stop is Bimini, gateway to the Bahamas.  But that turns into a longer stay than expected.
