28. On the Road Again

When I were a lad, I used to carry around a brochure for the Nordhavn 46. I would stare at that brochure whenever I had an empty moment. I would dream about owning one, what I would call her, what color and layout I’d pick, and all of the places we would go. I wanted […]

27. Charleston

And just like that, a whirlwind month in Charleston has come and gone. Well, Sylphide was there for a month anyway. I spent one of those weeks in Nowhere, Ontario for the annual company meetings, and I stopped back in Hometown, NY to visit and take care of some appointments. When I returned to Charleston […]

25. Georgetown

Howdy sports fans! Shortly after the events of my last post, I found myself being jumped on by an unbelievably sweet and tiny dogbeast called Milo.

My accent tends to give me away though, as the real locals are starting to sound pretty southern now. There are also fairly regular sightings of palm trees, which I think […]

21. The Inner Banks

I write to you from Beaufort, NC, which is pronounced Beaufort. Not to be confused with Beaufort, SC, which is pronounced Beaufort. When we left the action, I was at Great Bridge. Since then, life has been pretty good aboard Sylphide. The easy, breezy, beautiful thirty-something miles down to Coinjock was smooth and pleasant. The […]

19. Picking up where I Left Off

Howdy Sports Fans. It’s been a long time since I posted anything, so I thought I’d update anyone who might still be interested. After all of the holiday ruckus in New York had passed, my father and I loaded up the ol’ front wheel drive sleigh, and proceeded in a southerly direction. His ultimate destination […]
