New! Updated 6-05-2005 Check out the new photo galleries

NEW!! At the end of May 2005 we rented a car and drove around the Province of Newfoundland. Crossing the island on the Trans Canada Highway we visited Buchans, Grand Falls/Windsor, Gander, Bonavista, Twillingate, Gros Morn National Park, L'anse aux Meadows and more. Our new gallery shows photos selected from the trip. Click here

Correction: references to "Sand Park" in the galleries are incorrect and should read "Sandbanks Park". My apologies!


We (Carolyn, Ed, and two cats; Aries and Orion) live and cruise aboard "MoonShadow" a 1976 Gulfstar 41' ketch. We have lived aboard boats for over 20 years about half of it working and half cruising. When cruising we typically spend summers in Maine or Nova Scotia and winters "someplace warmer".

We enjoy cooler climes and quiet anchorages away from the crowds. Don't look for us in the popular spots.

Coastal navigation and sitting around at anchor are what I am best at while Carolyn is the offshore sailor in the team.  We both spend a lot of time working on the boat: me the engine and electronics; Carolyn varnish and canvas work.   We fill time not spent travelling or fixing on various hobbies. Computer graphics and photography for Ed, knitting and needlepoint for Carolyn.  And of course reading   and .... (ok, we'll admit it) sitcoms on TV.

Our travels over the years have taken us from Newfoundland to the Bahamas.  Newfoundland tops our list of favorites though we have only made two trips that far north. Our most recent has included wintering in Burgeo. In the south we are fond of the Carolinas and Georgia.

Be sure to check out the photos in the galleries. There is some spectacular scenery along our coasts. Because of the great number of images they have been heavily compressed and so the quality is low. If you would like a CD with high quality images send us an e-mail at


Older photos were taken with a Nikon 950 digital and newer photos with a Nikon 8800 digital
