Barb and Candace,

I have often wondered if people from other states delight in finding fellow Pennsylvanians or fellow Kansasians. (Seems unlikely, given the struggle to even say those state-ians.) I was born hea, too, (Rockland) but am still from away because my parents only started coming here for the summer in 1950 and moved here for good in 1954. We moved to MDI in 1960 when I was four. Now I live a mile down the road from Candace, Barb, but I am still "from the island". What a sense of place we have!

Sarah MacColl

OK, I'm not done. Barb, I find myself visualizing your St. Thomas home boat, imagining myself back at Maho Bay Camps, my home away from home. As you may know, those of us who have been to Maho many many times were crushed that it was sold last year. So this year, we have opted to go to Honduras for our winter break, but almost everyday I think of Big Maho, Francis Bay, Lameshur, and Mary's Point and of the hundreds of miles I've swum and snorkeled on St. John. I am so jealous that you are down there. I think I may have to get back next year.

Karen

So true! Years ago Jeff and I went to a WNBA game in Charlotte, NC, to watch Cindy Blodgett, standout basketball player for Lawrence High School (our alma mater) and the University of Maine at Orono. At a restaurant before the game, we ran into the lady who sang at our wedding. At the game, we ran into another Mainer. Perhaps the most famous Mainer of all: Stephen King. He and his wife were big Cindy Blodgett fans.

Boating Blogs

  • Zero To Cruising | Fun-loving couple sailing the Caribbean on their catamaran
    Two very active cruisers. I love following their blog, but rarely feel up to actually hiking with them. EW has and lived to tell the tale.
  • Troubadour
    These friends just completed a major haul out in Grenada -- unplanned. Read their past posts to find out why and their current to follow in their wake and hear a bit of Jimmy Buffet.
  • The Everywhereist | travel advice, tips, and stories
    One of the few non-sailors I follow. Geraldine is a writer who was unemployed. Her husband has to travel for his job. So she now travels with him and writes about it. She's funny. She's certainly well-traveled. I'm not sure whether she is following her dream or making lemonade out of lemons -- either way, she does it beautifully.
  • Silverheels III
    Ken and Lynn from Canada - others who lived aboard through a few winters who are now in the Caribbean. We can relate.
  • Shilo
    Two people, one a writer and one a photographer on a catamaran. Not to be missed.
  • s/v Celebration
    Steve and Lynn are really smart, fun, and willing to share both their knowledge and their sense of humor. They've been going back and forth from States to Caribbean for weddings and family. Blue water sailing and fun times.
  • One White Tree
    Ross and Diana -- forever friends we met in Grenada -- are sailing west as we are sailing east. We've shared excellent times and fun stories and look forward to following them as they sail the Pacific.
  • Coconut Connection | Pacific Hwy
    We met Bruce and Laura in Grenada in 2011 when they were living aboard and working on the catamaran Puma. Now they are on their own monohull, crossing the Pacific. They are former charter captain and crew and Laura is an outstanding chef.
  • Ceilydh Sets Sail
    A family of three - and a cat sailing the Pacific. Homeschooling, writing, boat repair, catamarans, local information and more.
  • An Extraordinary Hike | One girl's adventure on the Appalachian Trail.
    Jessie taught in the one-room school house on Monhegan Island in Maine, and is taking this year to follow her dream and hike the Applacian Trail. She is a dog-lover, daughter of sailors -- Paul Campbell, her dad, and Sheila, her step-mom own and sail Que Rico.
