Hi and welcome to our site!

After talking about it for what seemed forever, in 2009 we sold our home and purchased a Saga 43 to live aboard while we planned to take it cruising.

Colder than it looks!

Colder than it looks!

Six years was a little longer than we initially planned, especially given the cold Toronto winters, but we survived (partly by indulging in the multitude of restaurants nearby!). However, it also gave us time to prepare the boat and ourselves.

We set sail in early June 2016.

We are so excited to be retired at last and travel to far off (warmer!) places. We also would like to thank all those who have gone before and have shared your stories. Without you we would never have dreamed this was possible. So this site is partly to carry on that tradition, as well as provide a means for our family and friends to keep in touch.

We hope you enjoy our stories and even take some inspiration for your own adventure!
