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…

REP REVIEW – SHAKESPEARE STREAM

Full disclosure I do get paid to sell marine accessories to boat builders and distributors, but when luck will have it, I also get to use these products in real the real world.  What I’m sharing here are some items in the company quiver that I absolutely loved onboard our own boat SV Magic Bus.  So, I’ll start with the Stream from Shakespeare…

Kiteboarding for Cruisers in the Exumas – Map and Notes

We spent December and January cruising the Exumas in the Bahamas looking for the very best kiteboarding spots. Here’s a list for those of you looking for a few great all around beaches. Our criteria included good access to a close anchorage, shallow to waist deep water with clear wide beaches for easy launches and landings, and at almost all…

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…

Special Guests!

If you’re with me here on island time… a post about Christmas… completed before New Years… is actually pretty darn quick.  My computer keyboard just reminds me too much of how we’re headed back towards work… and there are just NO WORDS to describe the experience Lily and I had off a little sandbar in Georgetown.  Cheers to my new…

Rainbows of Blue – By Cindy

I never knew blue could be so many colors. Just when I think the water can not get any bluer – we turn the corner and it does. The contrast with the white white sand and coral is truly brilliant. I wish I could bundle up just one small patch and place it at home in CT. We are learning…

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…
