It’s a rock-and-roll Christmas!

December 28, 2018 With a new front coming our way, we decided to duck behind Rose Island, which is a smallish island east of New Providence and Paradise Islands. We were excited to see we wouldn’t be alone riding out the storm at anchor, as […]

Preparing to leave

October 28, 2018 The reality of weather is that while it may be predictable, it is not infallible. In fact, Mother Nature likes to mess with us quite a bit and toss crappy weather on the weekends, which means for us, there would be no […]
