Originally from New Zealand, my husband and I are currently cruising in our Grand Harbour 55 Motor Yacht, in the USA. We are wintering over on the South West Coast of Florida, Port Charlotte. 2014 will see us completing 'The Loop' of 7,000 miles from Florida, up the east coast to the Great Lakes and back down via Chicago, using Rivers, lakes, canals and the ocean to cross our wake at Mobile Alabama, on the Gulf of Mexico. I am documenting our travels in Blog form. It will make great reading in our dotage!
