Heading north to Nova Scotia

https://photos.app.goo.gl/vE4BXN13TzX7QGf78 It really seemed that we were not going to make it all the way to Canada on this trip. Between the boat issues, the health care requirements, and that all of the Nordhavn Atlantic Group (informal group of Nordhavns and others who are casually travelling together) already in Nova Scotia, that we were just going to run out of time. But our very good friend, Gordon, was due to arrive into Sydney Airport, Nova Scotia, on 9th August, and we wanted to do o...

Care and Maintenance- Boat and body

Ft Pierce- Boat and personal maintenance. https://photos.app.goo.gl/FHXFGHcoDuwnLMbv9 As I mentioned in a past blog, we had the crane motor fail while in the Bahamas. This is a major setback while living on the hook, as we now have no transportation from the boat to the shore aside from our kayaks. We had planned to spend a few additional weeks in the Bahamas, and then head across directly to York River in Virginia, to get a big jump on our northern trip. But with the crane breakdown, we no...

Passage making again- What a difference a day makes. https://photos.app.goo.gl/abC99kiSVj8QZkgD6 We spent a month at Ft. Pierce City Marina. Time seemed to get away from us. We got lots accomplished, more about the month of projects, but we are finally ready to get some miles under our hull, and we set up a route for a non-stop run from Ft Pierce to Norfolk and to York River our desired destination. This would be our longest passage together on Southern Star, and we both looked forward to doin...

Family rendezvous x 2 https://photos.app.goo.gl/Vs7ZafNhFriCsVsq7 When I had been in NZ last year, we had talked about a cruise that my brother Jonathan and his wife Nicola were planning for April-May, which was to start in San Diego, travel south along Mexico and Central America, transit the Panama Canal, and then after a stop at Cartagena, travel to Ft Lauderdale, Charleston and Boston.   Then they were spending a week in Honolulu on their way back to NZ. I was certain the cruise ship itine...

Enjoying the Bahamas, but time to leave

Wow. Started this blog almost a month ago, and we are now departing Ft. Pierce Florida. Better get this one out before we move any further. https://photos.app.goo.gl/ZsFbrApA2NntG3iK7 We are sitting at Great Sale Cay, in the northern Abaco Islands, waiting to depart for the last leg of the trip to Ft Pierce, Fl.  The trip is about 120 miles, and we plan to leave today June 1 at about 3:00 pm to make our landing at Ft Pierce about 8-9:00 am tomorrow. We are the only boat anchored here this mor...

Georgetown and the Family Islands Regatta, and the end of the fish drought

https://photos.app.goo.gl/gjUEjH9CoLZCw9MEA We stayed on in Georgetown to see the start of the Family Islands Regatta, with our friends, Clark and Michelle on Roam. We were anchored off our favorite place at Sand Dollar Beach. It is much quieter here in Georgetown now that the Cruisers Regatta is over and the majority of the cruisers have left, back on their way to the US and Canada. We are seeing more boats coming up from the Caribbean, also on their way to the states. And we are seeing a fe...
