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 3: A Series of Unfortunate Events

We depart Baltimore heading back south along the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake. It’s only a matter of a hours before we realize we have an engine problem. Then the problems keep coming as we continue south, ultimately proving the most challenging three weeks we’ve had since starting this cruising adventure as the Ladies Luck and Doom engage in combat. Despite it all we still see some great towns and enjoy new stops in the Chesapeake Bay.
