Next adventure-The Bahamas

Nov. 12: Tomorrow we begin the drive to Palmetto, Florida to pick up our new Catalina 385. On the first leg we will first sail around the tip of Florida to Miami. All new sailing territory for us. Then, weather permitting, we will continue to Bimini, Grand Bahama Island and the Abbacos before heading south to the Exumas. We have yet to see Sable in the water. But we have new crew shirts, a gift from our daughter Lilla.

And just this morning we received a bon voyage gift from our granddaughter Ellen and her boyfriend Matt, who will join us for a week after the new year. Looks like we are as ready as we can be. Our favorite cabernet. Hope they don’t expect us to save it for their visit.

Collecting more material for our novel, Night Watch but hope it won’t be as lasting as our poisonwood adventure.


Stay tuned,

Jan and Ed

About ejhowle23

Authors and adventurers, participated in the World Race 2011, an automobile rally from New York to Paris, crossing three continents and 14,000 land miles. Following much the same route as the setting for our debut novel, The Long Road to Paris. This blog describes our own adventures and challenges. And now you can follow our Bahamas sailing adventure that provides the setting for our second novel, Night Watch. Our rally, the African Safari Challenge, crossed five countries in South Africa in May 2014 and in 2015 we participated in the second Trans-American rally this time from Nova Scotia to San Francisco. Spring of 2016 we travelled 28 days around Australia with friends from previous rallies and in the fall participated in our most exhausting rally through Argentina, Chili and Peru- the Rally of the Incas. We were awarded the Against All Odds award. We're still not sure if this was for us or our car. Stewball never broke down and we hardly did. We will soon take on Iceland as a self-drive tour and in the fall of 2017 we will participate in the Odyssey Italia and then back to Africa for a do-over (almost) of the Africa Safari Challenge.

    I don’t know if you are still in Palmetto organizing your new baby, but Egmont Key is not far from you and a great place for a picnic. Part of it is a National Wildlife Refuge. Good place for a swim!
