Most important; if you’ve evacuated from anywhere because of the hurricane you are in our thoughts and pirate toasts.  If you have been dislodged from your boat, I will raise a special toast, as I personally know of two bloggers whose boats were in the direct path of the hurricane, one is ok, not sure about the other one but we’re holding our breath.

Eppig Brewing Review and other ramblings

We’ve had a couple of long weeks with the kids going back to school and me still getting broken into full-time retirement and boat life,,,all at once,,,while also managing a Great Dane.  No excuses, we’ve chosen this for ourselves, but it’s still a bit hectic sometimes.  There’s some expectations that I put on myself as the writer of a travel and sailing adventure blog to live up to the writing, but we’re not always in a position to do that anymore and it’s a team effort now.  So last weekend we met up with our favorite roving reporter (Dr. EMI MD) to check out the Eppig Brewing outdoor beer garden right on the water in Point Loma, Ca, USA.  YES, it’s TOUGH, but someone’s gotta do it in order for this website to review it: Continue reading

BVI Destruction In Fine Focus

I dare you not to click on the link and check out the full destruction that Hurricane Irma wrought on one of the most popular bars in the BVI, the Soggy Dollar.  Once you see it, you’ll also be amazed at the creativity and drive to bring it all back.  Check it out: Soggy Dollar

LF2SF cares so much for the BVI that we’re heading down there in two weeks to support the cause,,,,and report back to all of you on our good deeds!

Remember that you can still buy shirts and the proceeds will go directly to helping the less fortunate still trying to dig out of Irma’s wrath.

Two Boats in 1 weekend,,,,what the hell ?

Little Miss Brewing- A beer story!

Awesome Beer and Great Ambiance- Little Miss Brewing Company, Miramar.

Yep,,,,so it’s Saturday afternoon and we’re in the industrial back area of Miramar, Ca in San Diego,,,,checking out a company that makes mattresses for boats- San Diego Boat Mattress Company.   We’d met these guys at the San Diego Boat Show and they had offered us a chance to drop lots of money for new mattresses for the boat.  It’s very, very tempting,,,,but we went for the tour and had a good time.  We liked this place.  They know folks with kids are going to come in, so they have a room with a DVD player and TV and toys for the kids so the adults can shop.  It was a nice tour and then we left, intent on heading out for food then back to the boat.  But,,,,our crew is easily distracted, so we followed the cool signs for Little Miss Brewing Company.  By easily distracted,,,,I mean,,,,,a chick riding a bomb on a sign advertising a brewery,,,,,easily catches my attention.  Yes,,,,I’m easily distracted.  So we followed the signs around behind several buildings in this industrial area till we found the brewery,,,,and LOVED it.  Little Miss Brewing Company has all sorts of decor that brings to mind WWII propaganda and great beer too.  We had a sampler of our own choosing,,,,,delivered in a bomb housing with very nicely portioned tasting glasses that allowed for both of us to taste each beer without having to conserve it.  Again, we were both impressed because the tasting room had a specific area with big plush couches and lots of games for kids, videos and more decorations that kept me distracted.  After tasting four different samplings, the tiny hunger machines (kids) were on the verge of nuclear fucking meltdown,,,,so we had to promise to return and take off.  On the way out,,,,they took one of our stickers and you may be able to find it on the wall of stickers inside the brewery,,,,if you look really hard.

We’re working toward our goals……are you?

Stay with us,,,we love your questions, comments and concerns and want you to follow us for more adventures-
