Our Roving Reporter tried hard to find starfish during her snorkeling expeditions off the shoreline,,,,only to randomly find one once the tide went out,,,,and she was back on dry land.
Look out, the stickers are appearing everywhere- Continue reading
I want to start by saying that I have written this with the utmost respect and sadness for those who lost their boats to Hurricane Irma whether in BVI, Puerto Rico or Florida. Every boat in my pictures belonged to someone,,,meaning they were someone’s hopes and dreams. Continue reading
Yep, we had to pay our respects to an old haunt… Continue reading
You guys are a tough crowd. I went sailing and was away for a bit,,,,and my stats plummeted. Lucky for me,,,,they didn’t have very far to plummet!
I’m back and life is about to get awesome crazy!
Keep reading and following.
We went to the BVI for about 5 different reasons but came back with so much more…. Continue reading
They’ve set me loose in the BVI with my new GoPro, camera and computer,,,,plus a license to sail! With kids in tow following my wife where she wants to go,,,,,we can’t wait to check it all out and post highlights. We love the BVI and the Caribbean in general, mostly for the warm and generous people we meet. Make sure you tune in all week in case I get motivated enough to post and actually learn to use my GoPro-
Here at LF2SF, we write about sailing, cruising, adventure travel and family travel. We don’t just write about it, we live our own adventures. LF2SF is off to the British Virgin Islands (BVI) to spend some time sailing a bareboat catamaran with family and friends. We’re taking our 6 & 8-year-old girls on their first real out of country sailing adventure, as we prep for our own cruising trip in the future. I will make every effort to take advantage of the promised WiFi on the boat and get pics and stories up on the blog as often as possible, but please understand if you don’t see regular posts for a week or so. We’re off adventure traveling with our kids and several of our friends.
By the time you read this,,,,I will hopefully be cheerfully driving Southern California freeway’s with my salty crew in the back,,,,on the way to our annual or semi-annual visit to Minney’s Surplus in Newport Beach, Ca. If you’ve never been there, I think it’s quite possibly a life changing experience for some sailors, especially when you realize you can actually trade your old gear in order to get credit to buy other stuff you really need,,,,or you don’t really need but want. This is not a store for the faint of heart,,,,as you’ll be overwhelmed by Minney’s if you go in unprepared for the sheer scale of the sailing and boating junk and gear available. Anything from original pirate anchors to used heads and a large and complex variety of sails is available here. The staff is friendly and generally allows my children in the store at least once per year,,,,and allows pets too. As for my purpose,,,,well,,,,I’m feeling the tug of Minney’s at this time of year and hot wife is busy Saturday morning, so I’m taking the kids and heading to Minney’s.
If you take my advice and make a pilgrimage to Minney’s in Newport, Ca,,,,tell them that LF2SF sent you and prepare to receive no discount and a blank stare!
