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!

Rosemary Beach Walk

New Years Eve 2008 and Morning of 2009
Date:       January 1, 2009
Location:  Rosemary Beach, Florida
LatLong:  30° 27′ N, 86° 01′ W
We love to start the New Year with a walk on the beach.  We are lucky to have so many to choose from.  The weather is usually gorgeous and not as crowded as summer time. This year our choice was Rosemary Beach out on 30A. And it didn’t disappoint!

No jacket for Captain Gar!! It was a beautiful afternoon.
Time for a little stroll around the village. 
The village has a definite European aura about it.  Just love the clock tower.  Think it was saying “Wine Time”!
I love the style of the architecture.


All dressed up for the holidays!  Wonderful place to start the New Year!
Don’t forget to take the time to get a little sand between your toes!  Till next time….Santé,
