Our Story


We live on a boat. Because life is better on blue. Better on water. Better on the ocean blue. Even better on a boat named Blue…

This blog will attempt to tell the story of how we were first drawn to the water, then to kayak, then to have a “mother ship,” and then moving aboard. Now we have several long journeys under our keel and are planning on leaving soon for some long term cruising. Possibly even circling this beautiful blue marble.

Thanks for joining in this journey and allowing your heart to dream of exploring far off shores…
