Thanksgiving | Travel Day | South Bay, FL to Palm Beach Motorcoach Resort, FL

ODOMETER: 80,306 | MILES TRAVELED: 2,361

 

by Grant

Most campgrounds are full at this point and it’s Thanksgiving, so we may have to brave the mosquitos another night. It could be worse. It is a beautiful day, the sun’s shining and it’s going to be 81 today. 

Jana and I decide to take a bike ride along the levee around Lake Okeechobee (7 miles of a 110 mile circumnavigation). During the ride, we receive a call for an opening at an RV resort in  Palm Beach. We book a site, pack up and head off to the Palm Beach Motorcoach Resort. This is another fancy RV resort which is also a condominium property structure with rental lots. We appreciate that they agreed to let Thelma’s 18 year old carcass in their gates as we drive by motor coaches worth $500k to $1MM with Bentley’s, Porsche and Audi R8’s sitting in their drives. They did request to see a photo of her prior to approving our booking 😳.

This location is much closer to the beach and we get to cook on the grill without being eaten alive ourselves. Our Thanksgiving dinner was absolutely AWESOME!! Jana is truly the Thanksgiving maestra! It was a true Thanksgiving feast, RV style! We all express how very grateful we are for all we have, and all our friends and family on Thanksgiving.

Sailing Tahiti to Australia | Month 1: From Bus to Boat. After 8 months on the road in the U.S. and Mexico in Thelma & Louise (our motorhome and Jeep), this is the first month of our next chapter, a sailing voyage from Tahiti, French Polynesia to Australia.

We arrived in Tahiti in June 2021 to take ownership of a new-to-us boat, “Hanavave,” a 2002 Catamaran Athena 38 Fountaine Pajot. Hanavave is the name of a very picturesque bay in the Marquesas, an island group in French Polynesia, northeast of Tahiti.

We have spent our first month in Tahiti getting Hanavave ready for her big trip, making lots of much needed repairs and modifications. We have also been adjusting to living on a boat in Tahiti, a French speaking country. Our test sails to the nearby mystical island of Mo'orea have been successful and Jana, Jack and Ellie are now undergoing a PADI diving certification so that the whole family can dive together. Diving and snorkeling in French Polynesia is some of the best in the world and we are excited to be able to experience it together.
