We sold our home to pursue dreams of traversing God’s blue earth by sea.  Once we got serious about the idea, there was only one boat (for us) which was capable, yet financially possible, if we let everything else go…

 

As of November 9th, 2012, our home is now our wonderful Nordhavn 62, INFINITY ∞

 

We are currently living aboard in North Vancouver, BC, Canada, while keeping busy cosmetically-upgrading the boat (to make her our own) and also learning her systems.  You can see the upgrades we’ve made to the boat on the INFINITY page, called ‘Projects’

In the meantime, we continue to make short trips around the PNW (Pacific North West).  One trip in particular was our daughters’ Graduation Ceremony at UVic (University of Victoria),,, I honestly can’t believe it, our daughter’s all grown up!

In between the learning, the upgrades and the the projects, we occasionally moved INFINITY to another spot, just around the corner from us – Bedwell Bay.

While we were in Bedwell Bay, Julie and I decided to deploy our “Flopper Stoppers” for the 1st time.  Worked well!  We have used them twice now, getting a routine going.  (looking forward to the next opportunity).
