"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

Oct. 9 - Myrtle Beach, SC

Osprey Marina

Today marks a mile stone with our blog…this is the 600th entry. That’s a lot of entries, a lot of days enjoying our life on The Pearl. We began the blog to chronicle our adventures starting with the hunt for the perfect boat, making The Pearl feel like our home and then all the wonderful places we have visited during our travels. We wanted a way to be able to share our adventures with our family and friends…so they would know where we were, but it's also a great way for us to remember where we’ve been.

We spent the day getting our Pearl ready for our absent…packing, cleaning and taking the bimini down. It still amazes me how much “stuff” we take back and forth from home to the boat and back again. We have double everything…it seems, but there are still a lot of things to pack. Usually stuff we don’t think we need anymore on the boat. Every year I say we will bring less, but it still is too much! I can’t imagine flying home. Tomorrow we will load the car, get fuel in the boat, finish up a few last minute things and be on the road home on Friday. I’ll give a wrap up of our cruising year in a later post.
