    We are so very excited for y’all. While we will miss you dearly and think of you often we wish you well with your new way of life. While you are on your way to living your dreams remember that we are still here in the day to day grind wishing we could be wherever you are. Be safe and please keep in touch with us when you can. Friends for life, like y’all, are really hard to find.

    • Jenny

      We are going to miss you guys terribly too! You’re right, friends for life are hard to find, and we will be thinking of you often as well. We will definitely keep in touch, and hope that you’ll be able to meet us some place along the line. We’ll just have to come up with a new tradition!

      Thanks, Laura! It’s great to hear from you! I love the Wayne Dyer quote, too. That’s exactly what we’re doing! Hope all is well at your end.

    I love the whale pictures soooo amazing!! You are on your way and Full Monty looks awesome!

    • Jenny

      Thanks Laura! Those whales were absolutely amazing. We will never forget an experience like that one. I have video that I’m still processing, so hopefully, I can get the video online within the next week or so.
      Justine has read your comment & should be replying sometime soon. We were without internet for a bit there, so now we’re playing catch-up. Hope all is good with you!

    Hello up north! We were just checking out the whale pics. WOW, what an incredible experience (one of many I look forward to hearing about).

    • Jenny

      Hi Lisa! Yes, the weather is definitely telling us that we’re up north. It’s absolutely gorgeous & we’re having fun, but now we’re starting to dream about Christmas in the Bahamas! We would love to work something out with Emma’s class. We’ll think on details & let you know. While we work on it, anyone from her class is more than welcome to send questions, and Justine would be happy to respond. Miss you guys bunches!

    oh my gosh…you guys are already having the most fabulous adventures! i love keeping up with you & thanks for sharing all the awesome photos! clyde is missing colin (& justine!) like crazy. hope to see you as your journey moves south!

    • Jenny

      Hi Jo! We most definitely are having some incredible experiences. I never knew how great things would be so soon. Of course, we still have our daily chores, but it’s quite nice to have fun & relaxation to go along with. Colin & Justine miss Clyde too. Internet has been scarce lately, but we should be back on a more constant connection within the next few days. Position reports will keep coming in as we move, so you’ll be able to tell when we’re back in your neck of the woods. Hoping we can stop in Wrightsville around early November. Maybe we can see you guys then!

    Will and family – I am so happy to hear you are following your dream! I will follow so I may live vicariously!

    • Jenny

      Hi Shannon! Great to hear from you. Hope everything is going well. I haven’t thought about landscaping in the past 102 days! Having fun here. Wil & family

  8. Heather

    I miss being able to post comments on your main posts, Jenny! Your pictures are great, and your adventures are going to make the transition to land easier for us to take, knowing you are Out There cruising! Yes, we will stay on Calvert classes one more year, then transition to a … dare I say it .. high school! Enjoy this time, it is sacred and wondrous. Love from the subtropical end of the Gulf Coast 🙂

    • Jenny

      Hi Heather! Since we haven’t had internet, I think the comment box got overloaded with a bunch of spam comments. I need to figure out how to control spam, it keeps overloading the site. Hopefully, now you can leave comments on the main posts.
      We were living through you when you were cruising, and now we can return the favor! Too bad we can’t cruise together though. Can’t believe how the time flies! Jenny

    Jenny,
    Hi! I think Mr. and Mrs. Witcher told you that our 7th grade students would be tracking your progress on this great adventure. We are so busy at school, it is hard to keep up, but we are trying. Some of my students have comments for your children, so I will be posting them throughout the coming weeks. We love your pictures, and we wish you the best of luck!
    Take care.

    • Jenny

      Hi Velinda,
      Yes, we heard about your students following our adventures! We’re slow at this end too. We don’t always have an internet connection, so sometimes getting back to you might not be immediate. But we will definitely respond! Justine & Colin both have prepared new posts ready for publishing, so hopefully they will be online more in the upcoming weeks. I also have some ideas for posts or for a “school page” that might help students become more involved with what we’re doing. (i.e. teaching about water & energy conservation and learning how to be your own meteorologist) Great hearing from you, and we will look forward to hearing from your students. Jenny & crew

    Hey Jenny,
    Wow! Y’all have been busy! We loved your pictures of New York….very educational.
    Thank you for sharing your journey with us.
    Velinda

    • Jenny

      Hi Velinda, We’re very happy to hear you enjoyed the NY photos! Spending time in that area was definitely an educational experience for the kids. Especially the visit to Ellis Island and getting to see where the immigrants arrived. So much wonderful history! We’ll try to keep the learning coming! Jenny & crew

  11. Wayne Rocheleau

    We talked with you on the radio the night we left Beaufort and again as you left Marsh Harbor. Best wishes from Wayne on Cay Paraiso.

    • Jenny

      It was nice to “meet” you, Wayne! Your weather info that night was greatly appreciated. Thanks for the well wishes. Hope to meet you in person one day! Jenny & crew

    Jenny! This is so cool to see that you are sailing! I saw a short article in the alum news that you and your family were sailing, which is super-cool. I would love to catch up more with you, but I will keep this short, I know you have intermittent wi-fi access.

    I spent part of my spring break on a sailboat actually, with bro-in-law that lives on a sailboat (full time). Ms. Sullivan’s son (remember, biology?). We were at Cape Romain SC – we like to go look for seashells. I have not been offshore, though.

    I live in Emerald Isle NC now, but we still have the family beach house at Topsail. Is your place on the south end – Topsail Beach proper?

    I hope you can email me sometime. I would love to ask you more about your sailing, because Kenny wants us to get a boat in the near future (retirement for him). Good luck on the travels and fair sailing!!!
