Moving South 2006 on Quiescent...who happens to be for sale!

When we left New Jersey in November of 2006 we said goodbye to the fabulous shoreline of Atlantic City's casinos and Wildwood's fun boardwalk.  There is nothing compared to the "jersey shore" when you grew up a "jersey girl".  Just ask Bruce Springstein.

Making our way up the Delaware Bay the not to be missed landmark is Salem's Nuclear plant.  When the smoke is straight up the wind is mild for smooth cruising.

Sailing into the sunset (but without sails) each evening with others traversing south is a calming and somewhat communal feeling.

Settling in each night at port with friends led to some great meals and better conversations.

The C & D canal, as serene and peaceful as this gives time for true reflection.  Not just the picture time.

Traveling in "packs" is commonplace on the ICW Spring and Fall as the snowbirds return to warm waters.  Quiescent took the lead here while crossing the Albermarle Sound.  Calm waters were with us that day.

Dowry Creek Marina's BEER CAN CHICKEN party is the BEST ever!

So letting the first mate take a turn at the helm means the captain can take a break and enjoy the ride.
So pass the word, this life could be for someone you know...and Quiescent is anxious to get back out on the ICW to cruise around and make some people happy!

Selling More Than Art Glass...Selling Fiber Glass!

Our wonderful previous home has been up for sale. For quite awhile. So I'm trying to use my internet blogging, socializing, tweeting and anything else I can think of to tell the world wide web about this great live-aboard. In my next few posts I'll showcase our photos from two of our trips along the Intracoastal Waterway (forever after referred to as the ICW) in 2005 and 2006.

So if you know of someone with a dream to cruise, or someone wanting a great getaway boat for a condo on the water, pass along our blog or send them our way by email . We'll be forever grateful and we'll award you with the other glass, a selection of our art glass if your connection buys her!

Meet the lovely "Quiescent" Jefferson 42' Sundeck trawler with twin Cummins with only 1680 hours on her. Ain't she sweet?

What's Ahead

So I've been up since 5am. Thinking. What's up ahead. 2010, the next decade. If this reads choppy it's because I haven't had my coffee yet to form a sentence. Personally speaking, within the decade last, I've went from massage therapist to small business consultant to unemployed to part owner of a retail gift gallery, downsized two homes to live on a boat and back to a house and filling it up again. I've buried my mother, had a major accident and recovery and learned I've got osteoporosis. Have had the pleasure of being made a "grammy" and of making a whole bunch of new friends in a new place.

So I'm thinking again...what's up ahead. I've had my first cup of coffee, that's good. It's January 4th of this wonderful new year and new decade. Whatever is in the road ahead I'll have to either maneuver, embrace, let go, enjoy, treasure, overcome but at the very "most" experience.

It's 7:37am and time to start another day. Enjoy yours.
