The ICW and the Bahamas
In October 2007 my wife, Gail, and I took an eight month leave of absence from work, moved aboard our 35' sloop Alisios for seven months, and took her down the Intracoastal Waterway over to the southern Bahamas and back. We returned safe and sound June 2008 and returned to our jobs a bit more enriched. During our trip, I kept a detailed journal which I posted on-line within this site. Althouth its target audience was family and close friends, we soon gained a number of other followers. Upon our return, I converted that journal into a book that I named "Significant Deviation", which is a pun of sorts. It is available here in Adobe .pdf format along with links to photographs of our trip in a slideshow format.
