Tomorrow we will post some of our favorite photos from the trip as a way to wean ourselves off the daily process of uploading/editing photos, writing the log, posting the blog and maintaining spreadsheets that chronicle the trip and expenses.

  1. Congrats!! We're so pleased you have crossed your wake and arrived home. Our only regret is that we are not there to share it with you. As I think back of the days we spent together cruising the waters of Canada and the US I am filled with great memories,swimming in Canada, following Latitude into shallow anchorages, loaner cars, the "Bronze Fonz", morning music and great meals aboard.
    Soon we will be putting BETTY L up for the winter. I am convinced that my days will be filled with enjoyment on the slopes and evenings spent dreaming of our Great Loop travels, the friends we've made and the cruising days ahead of us.
    We will see you again, on the water, in Florida, or Cape Cod.
    Enjoy your time ashore - We miss you. Bob and Madeline
