I love Banyan and Windtraveler. Both of the ladies are exceptional writers and help you live through them.
Windtraveler is in the early family stages with one cute little girl and two more girls on the way. She takes very nice pics and is honest with what it takes to cruise.
Banyan is retired and living the life I want in 2 years. She emotes passion in her writings of the surroundings and the people they meet.
First of all, thank you all for sharing as I have expanded my bookmarks to include many listed above. And to the keepers and writers of those blogs, I hope you don't mind if I add them to my own blog called - My Nauti Mind- I'd Rather be Sailing
I'm a newb to boat ownership, coming up on a year of ownership of an 82-Catalina 27 called "Corleto"- we sail Coastal BC.
You might consider adding a link to the blog hop The Monkey's Fist: Collecting Cruisers' Perspectives where topic coordinators curate pages with link to liveaboard/cruiser blog posts on a wide range of topics from pets aboard to energy management to culinary adventures. Disclaimer: I've curated a couple of pages (Going It Alone and Energy Management).
I invite all DIY'ers, card-carrying or wannabees, to visit my blog at stingysailor.wordpress.com. It's only a year old so far, but growing with restoration and improvement projects of all sizes. Every post gives an opportunity to share your work, so join in the conversation while you're there!
