Welcome to the Re-Launch of Coastal Journeys. You might ask, “Why is there a Re-Launch of our Coastal Journeys Blog?” The reason is that we forgot to renew our Domain with Go Daddy and failed to renew our blog theme. Blame it on the Bahamas and too much fun! We were enjoying the Exumas and did not pay attention to the email notices that were sent. The end result is that the original blog was not backed up so it was lost – our fault again. So, a new Coastal Journeys has to be created.
Our first Coastal Journeys blog was all about our adventure on the Great Loop in 2017. We had quite a time on a true Bucket List Journey that provided numerous memories and life long friends. We are now Gold Loopers having completed the Loop and are looking for new Coastal Journeys.
For the past two summers we have enjoyed exploring the Chesapeake. We are continually finding new anchorages and new towns that are a delight. This year we went back to the Hudson River. It was every bit as beautiful as we remembered our Loop. We find that as we are now seasoned cruisers we spend many more nights at anchor.
This summer we also checked off a Bucket List for us which was anchoring behind the Statue of Liberty. It is a magical experience that did not disappoint. At night she held her lighted torch high against the backdrop of the New York City lights. We were delightfully surprised that the sun rose behind the Statue and we were able to capture that moment.
We also dipped our hulls into Long Island Sound where we took a mooring ball in Port Washington for a few days. The Long Island Railroad stops there and it is an easy trip into New York City. We always try to catch a Broadway Play and this year it was “Bat Out of Hell”. It was exhilarating and we loved it!
Coastal Journeys will feature our travel destinations plus also tales of everyday life as we cruise. We hope you enjoy being “virtual cruisers” with Gypsies Palace.
