In January 2006 we left our farm and boys home in Montana and moved aboard our sailboat "Wandering Dolphin." This was supposed to be a part time arrangement but within only a few months, while we were sailing in the Bahamas, our house in Montana was burned to the ground.
We suddenly and unexpectedly found ourselves to be full time cruisers/live-a-boards. Wandering Dolphin was all we had left. We sailed North to Charleston, South Carolina where we regrouped and made a choice to stay on our boat and cruise/work as a full-time lifestyle.
The next summer we sailed north and ended up spending a few wonderful months in Oriental, North Carolina. In Oriental the real healing for our family began as we met lifelong friends and were enriched by this lovely little town.
In January, 2008 we sadly sailed away from Oriental towards the Bahamas.
The pictures in this video are all from this tumultuous time in our lives. I hope you enjoy them.
