Getting back into land life has involved some challenges and also some really lovely benefits. We’ve been enjoying the ability to reconnect with friends, to ride horses and to get some work done.
Back on Board!
We spent 4 months on Banyan in the spring of last year and put her to bed while we RV’d all over the US and Canada. We had an awesome time and it was mainly necessary because of work… and I really wanted to spend the holidays with family. Now, I can not begin to …
November in 1 Second a Day
Hi Folks, Somehow our November in 1 Second a Day video didn’t get published on the blog last month. Just in case you missed it on Facebook or my YouTube Channel, check it out here! Cheers, Anne
October in 1 Second a Day
Happy All Saints Day! I hope you enjoy our 1 Second a Day video for October. I’ve made a little adjustment so hopefully it is a bit easier to veiw than the video from September. Cheers!
The Family Adventure Summit
So, back in May, on a hard-to-get-to beach in Mexico, we met the coolest couple, the Duvals.

Back to School
The girls had a little break from the time they left school in Canada until we got to Guaymas. We were just having too much fun traveling to do much schooling. They had their “summer” break in February and March. They did lots of fun (and educational) things during that time. In Hawaii, we …
Boat Schooling Aboard Banyan
Okay, so I am not alone in feeling that homeschooling, was by far and away the hardest and possibly the worst part of cruising. Recently, at a meet-up over July 4th on Bainbridge Island I did a little informal survey. We got together with SV Agamere at their home. SV Wild Rumpus was there in …
The Mexican Connection
A friend of mine who is happily working on her own families cruising future asked about connectivity in Mexico. This was a huge question for me before we left so I thought I’d share our experiences. Mobile Phone Now, this might sound like an infomercial for T-Mobile. They have a great plan that provides us …
