End of Summer

Grilling on board

Well it is official. Our summer living on-board Syzygy has come to an end. With the storm treat 10 days ago we decided to pull the boat. Although we are sad to see the summer come to an end the fall has some great adventures in store for us. We are off to Yellowstone for 10 days.

We went to Yellowstone about a year and a half ago and we are very much looking forward to this trip. We …

Photographic proof – we have a “pot of gold” life. It has been another great week here on Sail Syzygy. After two very windy days spent bouncing around the boat at mooring, we now have some “lets sail” days. We plan on a sail today out past Beavertail light and around RWNB, our favorite buoy. Yesterday we took some time out to swim off the stern of the boat and the water was a very nice temperature. Just the right amount of nip in it. Nothing says sailing in New England like a chilly swim in the water. When the girls …
