Pregnant on a Sailboat

Pregnant on a Sailboat

I lived on a sailboat for 7 months of my pregnancy. And I fully agree with you, that I've probably got a couple of screws loose in my head!

The natural and immediate question most people ask goes something to the tune of, "Hey crazy lady, what terrible sequence of events brought you to the point of spending some of the most uncomfortable months in your life on a 32 foot sailboat that barley fits one person comfortably?" This of course is a fair and honest question. Long story short, I saw an opportunity for an adventure that I thought I'd be crazy NOT to take.

Limano, Italy

Limano, Italy

Perched in one of Italy’s lesser know mountain ranges nicknamed the Alpini or “little Alps,” is a quaint mountain town that goes by the name of Limano. If you have even the smallest desire to immerse yourself in the true Tuscan culture, this little gem is a must have on your travel bucket list. 

With a baby on the way, our trip couldn’t have come at a better time. We turned our summer vacation into a babymoon and I can honestly say we enjoyed one of the most beautiful spots on God’s green earth!

Even on a Sailboat, Life Happens!

Even on a Sailboat, Life Happens!

Sailing often has some great analogies to life events. One minute you’re plugging along with the fair winds and following seas, and the next you spot a storm on the horizon. But smooth seas never made a good sailor, and in life, I’m aiming to be a great sailor. So it was with open arms and a thankful heart that I received wonderful news of a small squall headed my way. I'm excited to share with you that a baby sailor will be joining our crew this Christmas!

What I Miss About Living On Land

What I Miss About Living On Land

If you lived on the deep blue, what do you think you would miss the most about living on land? 

It’s been a long time (almost two years) since I called a house or an apartment my home. I wouldn’t trade my experience of living on a sailboat for anything, but when I do get to travel (inland and not out to sea), I do cherish my time on land. 

Wait What, You Live On A Sail Boat?

Wait What, You Live On A Sail Boat?

My life on a sailboat is always a fun conversation piece. Even if I’m trying my best to avoid the topic, some questions can’t be explained without having to mention my atypical living arrangement. Once the cat is out of the bag I can pretty much anticipate a lot of questions, like "wait, what... you live on a sail boat?"

Find Your Desert Oasis

Find Your Desert Oasis

A recent spontaneous trip took me on an Easter get-a-way that I won’t soon forget. Five hours of desert travel to the northeast of San Diego, the refreshing clear water of the Colorado river gathers in a Water Wanderer’s paradise, aka Lake Havasu, Arizona. The appropriately named Lake Havasu City is located on the lake shore. This small, friendly town is where I found my desert oasis.

Best Weekend Getaway Near San Diego: Baja, Mexico

Our latest water wanderer adventures took us south of the border into Baja, Mexico in search of deserted beaches, spectacular cliff top views and flea markets. On our coastline drive down to our home for the evening, the charming Bajamar Golf and Beach Resort, we noticed the sky was about to put on a show. As the sun drowned in the horizon, the sky burst into colors of orange, pink and red.
