I've always thought this statue would be alot bigger then it really was. It looks soo much bigger in the movies.
hey everyone. we made it out on the open ocean and now were heading into the intercoastal waterway. we stoped off in annapolis for a couple days. we had some engine problems. but dont worry were getting that all taken care of. although if anyone has a spare motor they would like to donate to us for our trip that would be very appreciated! were traveling in the chesapeake bay on our way to norfolk where the real intercoastal starts. we really underestamated the great atlantic ocean. we had a few waves come over the stern but everything is fine well brendan got a little wet and our little radio was sitting in a foot of water in the cockpit but other then that it was pretty fun. surfing down waves and having to really hold on. when we were leaving atlantic city harbour we were sailing with the dolphins. just like something you would see in a movie but it was real life on 'my life'! they were jumpin up right next to us and right up at the bow! amazing to be able to do something like that! atlantic city was somethin pretty different too. seeing all the buildings

This is me with my first case of beer. It's like i turned 19 all over again. but im 21 in the states!
lite up at night. i dont recomend walking through the ghetto at night though. not very safe.. but its worth it to go and see the city! the trump casino right on the water was really amazing i had to gamble a little. no success but it was still fun. im going to put some pictures up now from the trip so far, some of passing through nyc and some of the dolphins that we were sailing with. we'll keep you posted as much as we can.

dolphins and other things
Great to see those little video clips. Very cool watching the dolphins. Not surprised that the ocean was a bit startling. Really happy things are going well. We are all envious. You might want to email the link to Gabrielle at West. Fair Winds Ruth SV Witchcraft

Hello from Stephen on The Full Monty
Hi there Guys Like many of us in Kingston marina, freezing our rear ends off, I am following your blog with interest. As Xmas nears we wish you a good holiday down there. We will fly over you on Saturday Dec 20 and will look down in case you wave. In case you don't remember this is the bearded bloke with the British accent and the blue boat on "your dock". Keep the pointed end forward !
