And the Dream began.....

And the Dream began... I can remember my very first sailboat as if it were yesterday...the shiny, bright red hull, the brilliant white sail that could blind you in the afternoon sun as it danced across the water. I loved that boat and would have done anything to keep it safe. Even fall off the dock and almost drown...but that was many moons ago and I was only 3. Thank goodness for a quick dad! My pride and joy and I were both safe and lived to sail another day. There have been many more loves in my life since that wonderful week on Keuka Lake and a good a share of them have been the sailing variety. So I guess that it was only natural that over time the dream to sail around the world would become a passion. I am very lucky that the man in my life, my husband Gar, has humored me in following this dream. We are getting there and hope to set sail once we retire but the journey has been fun. Hope you enjoy the ride!

Ponte Vedra Beach Walk

Date:        January 29, 2012
Location:  Ponte Vedra Inn and Club
                 Ponte Vedra, Florida
LatLong:  30° 14' 28.54"N
                 81° 22' 39.81"W


The general composition of the sand seems to be a mix of quartz with its lovely sparkle and crushed shells which which were abundant. Like many of the beaches on the northeast coast of Florida the sand is hard and great for bike riding.  Enjoy!
