Belhaven to Aligator River

Had a long 12 hour cruising day into the teeth of a 20 knot northeasterly wind. Left Bellhaven at the crack of dawn.
Saw very little boat traffic all day but was impressed with Bodacious.
Was overjoyed to arrive at my anchorage and meet Brian and Stephanie who had their hook down from another Westsail 32, Rode Trip.
They kindly had me over for delicious homemade tortilla patties with beans. She makes them with 2 cups of flour, 3/4 cup of milk and 2 tablespoons of oil and fries them on the griddle with no oil. They have their beautiful boat up for sale at the moment with an excellent blog at


and one of the galley
And to cap it all off here is "Rode Trip" and the reason why I go cruising...........


  1. Just found your blog through Rode Trip. You have a beautiful boat and a great adventure planned. I can't wait to go back and catch up on your previous posts and follow your new ones! Happy Sailing!

  2. Deborah, thank you for the nice accolade. I also checked your blog out and I will be catching up on your story as well. I can't believe how nice your boat is especially all that teak work. You and Keith are very talented.
    Cheers and thanks again
