Welcome to our blog , The Misty Chronicles:  A Journal of our Journey on our Boat (now a book)! We’re excited to share our journey with you as we officially become full-time cruisers, with plans to set out on America’s Great Loop in May 2018.  Our blog will chronicle our journey with highlights on the things we love most:  travel (obviously!), history, art, food, local culture and festivities. To help highlight places and restaurants, the blog will show places in AQUA, and restaurants/food markets in FUSHIA!


We purchased Misty in August 2017, and moved aboard over Labor Day Weekend after returning from a fabulous 3 week trip to the Pacific Northwest (where we’re pictured above). We began moving the boat down to Portsmouth, VA. on October 6, after settling in and sprucing  her up.  We took our time, with stops at some favorite spots and discovering new places in New Jersey (Pt. Pleasant and Cape May) and the Chesapeake (Chesapeake City, Annapolis and Deltaville), arriving at Tidewater Yacht Marina on November 1, where we would ride out the winter before heading north to Lake Champlain in the spring.

As we approach the start of our journey, bear in mind that every boater we have spoken with emphasizes that this is about the JOURNEY, and there should NEVER be a schedule. This will be a fun and interesting adventure for two people who have had careers based on schedules and due dates, but we’re game!

So, sit back, relax, and share this amazing nearly three year journey with us!
