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.  We want to see parts of the country a little off the beaten path along America’s waterways; see and learn from the locals as well as the community of fellow wanderers we meet along the way; and see how we face up to the challenges we certainly will have.

Hence it is our Seefari.   

In August 2020 amidst COVID restlessness, we decided we needed to add some adventure to our lives while we had the opportunity.  We heard about America’s  Great Loop and were sold!  Over the next six months, we got rid of ‘stuff’, sold the house, and in April 2021 we moved aboard our Maine Cat P47 power catamaran in Ft. Pierce, FL. 

After a year of cruising the east coast, we officially started our Loop on March 17, 2022 from St Augustine, FL, heading north (or counter-clockwise).  More than 6000 miles later we returned to St. Augustine on April 12, 2023, officially ‘crossing our wake’ and completing The Great Loop.

We continue to cruise and live aboard,  with plans for exploring more new places.  

Thus the adventure and Seefari continue.

Summer on the Chesapeake: Part 1

It’s summer on the Chesapeake for us! We start with a visit to Smithfield VA on the James River, then spend 4th of July in Hampton before heading up the western side of the Chesapeake to the Potomac River. Colonial and Civil War history abounds, as well as personal history for us, as we make our way along this first leg of our Tour de Chesapeake up to Washington DC.

Life After The Loop

Now that our Loop is done, we head back up the familiar ICW to Norfolk VA to undergo a five week boat and human upkeep period.  But the trip is not without some boating drama.

Closing The Loop

From Ft. Pierce, we planned for a sprint of near-daily travel to get us the final couple hundred miles to our Loop Finish Line in St. Augustine.  The route takes us through Eau Gallie, Titusville, Daytona, and Palm Coast before we arrive back where our Loop started, thus crossing our wake. It seemed straightforward, but of course Mother Nature laughs in the face of even the best laid voyage plan.

The Home Stretch

We start up the east coast of Florida, beginning with crossing Biscayne Bay to get back onto the ICW.  Making our way past ridiculously extravagant homes and boats, we stop in Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and Stuart before arriving for a month long stay in Ft. Pierce.  There we completely slow down, enjoying just living and visits from friends.
