Home Away from Home

I like to think of Magic Bus as my home now, but for now we are back in the states renting in Noank, CT. It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 2 months since we ended our journey. It was a very hard adjustment at first: Sailing home to Florida, Driving 24 hours back to CT, moving into a new…

Headed Home

Spanish Wells was a dream. I love having no attachment to the real world, shutting my phone down for the day and exploring. We spent the last week there, driving our golf cart around aimlessly to the beach or to get ice cream at Papa’s Scoops every night (2 flavors are offered everyday from 7-10pm). Every was so kind to…

Spanish Wells, Eleuthera

Dreading the fact we are headed back towards Florida within the next week or so. I am IN LOVE with my new home. Waking up to the most beautiful sunrises, watching the sunset and gazing at the stars for hours. I’ve learned so much from taking this leap away from the real world. Mostly about myself but also that a…

Goodbye Exumas

“What does that noise mean?” is a popular line I here mom yelling as we are sailing along. I’ve also heard “Should I put my lifejacket on?” a lot. Boat finally starts to feel like home. Still lots of projects (boats have never ending projects) and daily maintenance i’m more then ok with. I started reading for the first time…

Sunday Waffles

I had one of the most amazing days of my entire life. We pulled into a tight anchorage at Compass Cay last night and found ourselves all alone with one other catamaran. From a distance, it appeared a family with kids my age. Dad and I decided to paddle board over and say hello. Wade and Gage came out and…

Headed North

Down the Exuma chain of islands we went, back the other way for now! Really dreading the fact i’ll soon be sitting in Noank watching the snow fall out of my new bedroom window as I continue online college soon. Looking forward to living on the boat again this summer though in Stonington Harbor! Honestly, I have ran out of…

2020 Recap

I would like to preface my blog post with a sorry to all my fans (not even sure anyone is actually reading this). I should have wrote more in the past few days but we have been busy! One island to the next, beach after beach.. I don’t think I could honestly tell you what day it is. Mom pulled…

Sunsets and Stars

Every night the sunset gets more and more beautiful. Since there are no cities in sight, the sky is so dark and full of stars. Going to Vermont in the winter time is one of my favorite places because the stars always shine so bright in the mountains. However, Bahamas ✨ top any other place i’ve been too. We got…

Exuma Heavens

Since everyone else gave up on blog posts, I guess you’ll only be hearing from me for the time being. As you already know, you need a negative test within 5 days of entering the Bahamas and on Day 5 once you are in the Bahamas. Both were negative for the entire family, so that’s some good news. So many…

New Friends

Got to meet some new friends on Highbourne Cay the past few days. Louis, the dock masters pet parrot was my favorite. He was so friendly and was an exciting greeting every morning at the dock. Highbourne Cay is very small, with the island consisting of only the marina and resort. However, it is one of my favorite places i’ve…
