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.

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.

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.
