Trekking 2,000 miles in November

I spent November heading down to Florida on a sail boat, and then I jumped a train bound for Virginia on Thanksgiving ... and I loved it. Over the duration of the month, I made stops in:

  • Newport News, VA
  • Hampton, VA
  • Virginia Beach, VA
  • New Bern, NC
  • South Port, NC
  • McClellanville, SC
  • Charleston, SC
  • Ft. Lauderdale, FL
  • Miami, FL
  • Richmond, VA
  • Newport News, VA

Happy Thanksgiving

"In the darkness of the morning as the sky struggles to light, may the rising
sun caress and bless your soul for all your life"

Happy Thanksgiving! I am on a train headed to Virginia today!

No List Friday

Cruising down the coast of Florida as my adventure draws to an end. The weather has been amazing this week ... in 6 days I'll be headed back to Virginia.

No List Friday

This past week, we were joined by a pod of dolphins off the coast of North Carolina for about an hour. I sat on the bow of the boat and watched them zip around. It was so cool I could have watched them all day. Truly majestic. They were so close to the boat we could hear them breathing. They looked like they were having so much fun I have decided that I would like to be a dolphin when I grow up.

27! On a boat!

Today is my 27th birthday! Typically I don't get super excited about my birthday, but this year I am. I had the totally cliche breakdown when I turned 25, and was really indifferent about turning 26 ... but 27? Heck yeah, bring it on!

I wasn't expecting to do anything this year because I am on a boat but the boys surprised me last night with an evening that included a glorious dinner, brews, a birthday banner, pie, and an attempt at making brownies in the pressure cooker.

This morning we are headed out of New Bern, NC ... Hopefully towards warmer weather!

Liz, where the heck are you?

So here's the deal ... last Monday I headed out of Hampton, VA with the EYE boys. (http://www.eyeotw.org/) and I'm sailing with them down to Florida. Currently we are anchored in New Bern, NC for the weekend and we should get down to Florida by the end of the month. The plan is to hang in Miami for a few days and then hop a train back to VA on Thanksgiving.

The only downside is that the List is going to be rather sparse until the end of the month. But don't worry I have all sorts of plans for the List for the conclusion of 2009.
