  • Dad Moments

    Parenting is hard. I still find myself waking up at night to tend to bad dreams, or bug bites, and there’s the constant sibling squabbles, and, with us, homeschooling battles. That’s not to mention the challenges of ushering our kids through their self-identification.  I have noticed, several times over the busy few years past, that I haven’t […]

    Cook’s Look in Photos

    Today we set out for what was listed as a 2.5hr hike for experienced hikers. It was what the Australian National Park system classified as an extremely difficult hike. We were definitely worried that Miles wouldn’t be able to make it. He is not what you might call the most enthusiastic hiker on easy pitches. […]

  • Off to See the Lizard

    I don’t know what’s going on with me. We spent last night in this lovely ClubMed anchorage.   This looks like a place you might like to stay at for a while right? I promise, the previous anchorage was even more picturesque. I, however, have no desire to stay. I don’t even feel the pull […]

  • Cruising Again

Heading off, looking for beaches or towns to explore, no real destinations…” It was clear that she expected it to take some reacclimation to get […]

  • Coyote: The Trickster

    When I met Robbie last year, all I knew about him was that he was inking all of my friends and that Gael thought that he could definitely help with this crazy octopus idea that I had. By the time that tattoo was done, I had made one of those rare friends that defy the […]

  • Australia 2012 Recap in Photos

    I have been pretty relaxed about my blog posting since we arrived. I think I thought I had little to say but the photos I have taken tell another story, so I will let them…

  • Home

    I wasn’t at home when we were tied into slip A58 in Monterey Harbor. I was homesick. Surprising yes, since I was on my own boat, tied up with my usual dock lines, cooking in my own galley, and sleeping in my own bed. I spent my time in Monterey constantly checking the three forecast […]
