We sailed the hogfish in and out of every anchoage.

A bit of breeze

The Cassio wrist watch still keeps almost perfect time with the same battery after 26 years.


Yep we raised our girls aboard from 6 weeks old.

Pure Hogfish

I love the simple sprit boom

So simple, but what a box

I have had a little time these past few days to dig these pictures out and post. Rachel and I are closeing up our house as we will be taking off sailing on the HFM for the next several years. I share these small glimpses of our past life in hopes that it will give inspiration to find your own adventures.
Our kids are all grown up now so it's just Rachel , Bequia the sea dog and me. 
Hope to see you out there.
