Holiday Fun & Blog Enhancements


So far it has been a great holiday and much needed break from preparing the boat for our upcoming journey.

Anne-Marie and I have been in Canada since December 23rd. We spent the first week in Harrow visiting with my family and are now in Toronto with Anne-Marie's family. It was really nice to see all the family again, some of whom we have not seen since our wedding nearly two years ago.

It was especially nice to be able to spend time with our nephew Quentin (aka Q) while in Harrow. He is growing up to be quite the little man at 4 months already!

I have also been working on some enhancements to the blog which are on display at the bottom of this entry. Now we will be able to include information about our position, course, speed, wind and wave conditions along with a Google map of our position in each posting. For example I have included all the possible data fields so that you can get an idea of what it will look like while we are under way. (NOTE: I re-posted Anne-Marie's first post via this new mechanism)

All the best in the new year!
