Getting ready to go...



Friday October 17th and Tiller, the star of the show, has taken off. Hopefully with it getting dark early he'll come back for supper.

This is our second year of taking our Westsail 32 "Heron" and Tiller our cat ~ down the ICW ( Intra Coastal Waterway ) ~to get out of the cold and to have an adventure.

I find packing extremely stressful partially because closing our business http://www.baysidecottagerentals.com/ comes at the same time.

We're new to blogging but thought it would be a great way to let friends and family follow us on our journey, know where we are and be able to get in easy touch with us. Assuming we make it through my packing woes we will head out on Monday or Tuesday - determined by the car getting fixed, the house getting bombed for Tiller's unfortunate summer flea problem. WE had hoped to see friends on the way down to Virginia where our boat spent the summer but doesn't seem likely at this point. There have been just too many things to do to be able to plan ahead.

So... more as we go. Margaret

here's to a great adventure fro you!!! and my first try at this blogging stuff - an adventure for me as I tiptoe into the technology world-am envious of the unstructured days and the simplicity of being on a boat - only got to ours twice this year but enjoyed it when we could and life here on the lake has other boats and benefits-glad you will have your cat-but get them fleas gone!!
take care- love , lon
