Seasonal Locations

We are using the SPOT satellite system to show where we are located.  This is the link that brings up a map and marks our exact location.  When we are on the move, SPOT tracks our progress, updating our position every ten minutes until we reach our destination for the day.

From June through November we are on Dock A at Sunset Bay Marina in Stuart, FL.  We love this town and the marina.  The people are very friendly and everything we need is within five miles, without ever going on an Interstate. We feel like we are living in a condo on (and in) the water when we are in Stuart.

From December through the end of May we are cruising in The Bahamas.  We leave Stuart, make stops in Palm Beach and sometimes Ft. Lauderdale, then we wait in Miami for good crossing weather.  We check in at Bimini and from there continue to the Exumas, stopping at various small islands on our way south.  We sail north in the spring through Eleuthera to Spanish Wells and back to Stuart.  In the photo above we were enjoying sundowners at Bimini Sands Resort and Marina in Bimini with a large group of cruisers.  We were all stuck there for over three weeks in January, 2013, waiting for safe sailing weather so we could leave for the Exumas. We made many good friends while in Bimini, including Tom and Cathie Dunn (SV Interlude) sitting on the far right.  We spent a good part of the season as boat buddies.
