Bless Your Heart; Good ‘Ole Boy; Fixin’ To; Roger That…

Hey Y’all! We are blogging today from Alabama!  The southern drawl and jovial sayings are a REAL thing and it.is.THICK!  (I love it!)  Its been one of my favorite weeks on the water – the weather is gorgeous, the people are incredibly genuine and the gulf is proving to be more alluring than I could’ve expected.   To rewind a bit…last week we attended the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show.  Tom was like a kid in a candy store. 🍭  We did plenty of yacht lusting and spent some much needed time with friends (which we apparently enjoyed so much that we totally forgot to take any photos…😭).

From there, we were back on the water making our way down the Tenn-Tom River.img_0014

The boating was uneventful…one winding river that allowed for full throttle cruising and lounging. 

And at our last stop before officially making it to the Gulf, I made a new friend! img_0024picmonkey-collage-2

“Lulu” worked her way into my heart and onto the boat in no time!  Saying goodbye made me yearn for having a pet on board…The sweet company was the best! 🐶

Annnnnd then…Our laaaast lock! (at least the last until we start heading up the east coast next next June) I’m wiggling in my chair as I type it! img_0018

So, with that, we are finally back into a more robust area – lattes, spin classes and salads are abundant and i’m loving every second of it!

More from Mobile, Alabama and the Gulf Shores in the coming days!

See you then!

From Music Row to Charm City…and back to the Loop!

Did you miss us?!  It’s been three weeks – sorry for leaving you hanging!  We hopped off the boat for a short rendezvous in Nashville, a week-long respite back in Baltimore aaaand made a quick appearance at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.

We got back to the boat yesterday (currently docked on Kentucky Lake @ Green Turtle Bay)…and the long haul down the Mississippi is a faint memory.  We did Nashville in our true-to-form fashion…with our tastebuds.  Up first:  Hattie B’s Hot Chicken.  Ridiculousness. And then I ate kale the rest of the week to make up for it! 😂  (kidding, sort of.)hattie-bs-collagekale-collage

We browsed Music Row, checked out the Cumberland River and went to the movies (twice).  Its also worth mentioning that it was our first night in a “real” bed since June – and while the Hutton Hotel was beautifully appointed, we actually missed sleeping on the boat!

After 4 days in Nashville, we were off to Baltimore!  Being back in the house was surreal. Tom and I both dove head first into the two luxuries we’ve missed most since we left house in June.  For me…baking.  For Tom…Xbox Live.  🤓 lemon-pie-collage

We hosted dinner at the house with friends (which allowed for even more baking opportunity), Tom caught up on Canton Car Wash matters, we VOTED! 🐘 🗳 🇺🇸 and before we knew it, we were off to the boat show. (More on that next week).

We are currently glued to the Election Day media storm, cleaning the boat, catching up on laundry, fueling up…and looking forward to make our way to the Gulf!
