One couple, one boat, one plan: to travel from Portland Oregon, through the Panama Canal, around the Yucatan, and through the Great Loop of the United States. With little experience, a commercial grade life raft and more than enough fuel to make it to scene of the crash they begin their journey. What's to come next no one knows but if we stay tuned we'll be sure to find out...
OK, so this
has been a long, long break.I left off
blogging as Quest pulled out of Fernandina, Florida and crossed into Georgia on
April 29, 2013.That day we made it to
Golden Isles Marina at St. Simons Island and the following morning we groped
our way through the blanketing fog and made it to Thunderbolt for our last
night in Georgia.After one night in
beautiful Beaufort, South Carolina we arrived at Isle of Palm Marina and
prepared Quest to go it alone for a few days while Dan and I flew from
Charleston to Vermont to take care of a little business.

Quest.What a treat it was to heave her

Hawaii she was eager to explore the Georgia shore so we did a little beach-combing that evening then prepared for the morning move on to one of our
favorite anchorages, Minim Creek.Friday
found us at Barefoot Landing in Myrtle Beach then Saturday we headed for our
planned stop in Southport, NC.

managed to let her know that our trip to the hospital was not the only surprise
and that Steven would meet us there.It
was so wonderful having Erin there with me, what a comfort she is!Steven did skirt her away for a while to
introduce her to some of his Wilmington friends and give her a tour of UNCW.She surely got cheated on her trip but I was
most grateful to have her there.
introduced to Cape Fear Marina that was to be her home for the summer, Erin flew home, I was sprung from thehospital and Dan and I made our way home to
