July 1 – We’ll be home in two weeks!

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

Where does the time go?

First, let me apologize for letting our posting schedule slide so egregiously. My last substantive posting (if you can call it that) was back around Mardi Gras when we were in Martinique, still heading south. Since that time we’ve been to a lot more islands, in the following order:

– St. Lucia
– The Grenadines (Bequia, Mustique, Mayreau, Tobago Cays, Union Island)
– Carriacou
– Grenada (furthest point south was 11 59N)
– Carriacou (again, one night only)
– Bequia (again)
– St. Lucia (again – although Graydon provided a guest blog for that visit)
– Martinique (again, one night only)
– Dominica (again)
– Les Saintes (again, for a one day shopping spree)
– Antigua
– Barbuda
– the BVI’s (again)
– Bermuda

Then we sailed back to the US at the end of May arriving in Newport, RI. From there we traveled to Mystic, CT, then across Long Island Sound to visit friends in the Hamptons, then to Cuttyhunk and Martha’s Vineyard. We proceeded through the Cape Cod Canal and up to Marblehead before heading to Maine, which is where we are today (Boothbay)

Ok, so now you’re all caught up.

Over the next two weeks, we will cruise a little bit more in Maine (Penobscot Bay) and then bring Bojangles to Rockland where we will mothball her for the remainder of the season. Then, we plan to travel overland back to Toronto, to resume our shoreside existence and see if our dog still remembers us – likely around July 15.

We’ve had a great adventure, and when I get some time, I’ll complete all the missing blog entries and provide enough photos to bore the pants off even our most loyal family and friends.

So, please continue to watch this space for updates and, to our Toronto based friends, feel free to start including us in all those social functions that we’ve been missing for the last year.
