We crossed successfully!




We had an idyllic crossing of the Gulf Stream this time. We’re slipped next to an iconic vessel, the CHanticleer in port Salerno. Our friend Joan’s former husband used to captain this boat, which has spent lots of time in the north channel of Lake Huron.

I have video of our crossing that makes the ocean look like a pond! Can’t post it right now though. Trust me.

We’re cleaning and stripping the boat for storage now. When we’re ready we will head back to Canada.

We want to wish Joyce a wonderful 86th birthday. I must have inherited some of that spirit of adventure that took her to Singapore some 60 years ago!

love ya mum!

  3. Yay! So glad you’re safely back in your ‘home’ port. What a fantastic adventure you and Bob have had! I know he’s proud of the skills he learned this season and you, as well. Celebrate before you head back north. Can’t wait to see the video!

  4. Thanks for writing and yes, I think you inherited some of your adventurous spirit from me. Glad you are getting things done and we will all be together soon. We will celebrate in grand style, Bob and I for our recent birthdays. Take care. Love to all, Mum

  5. Congratulations! I’m so glad you made it safe and sound, and can’t wait to see the pix…and even better, to welcome you home! May your travels on land be as safe and pleasant as those on water.
