Key West, FL

ODOMETER: 80,549 | MILES TRAVELED: 2,604

 

by Grant

We’re starting to get a little cabin fever with the lack of trails for run/riding and the wind hampering paddling options. We decide to explore Fort Zachary Taylor trail, which is a little less than a mile, but gets into the woods at least.

Jana ends up running four laps and I walk three, but her knee is playing up. It’s a pretty hard pack on the trail, so it’s still a little like running on the road sadly. We cool off at the beach and have a lovely dip in the pristine waters off this southerly peninsula.

After returning to the RV, Jana gets stuck back into the website and I work on the RV a bit. I cracked my skull on one of the slides, so Jack administered some first aid and I decided to tackle some ‘light duties’ and catch up on these posts.

In the afternoon, we took the kids back to Fort Zachary Taylor and do a quick looksee at the Fort itself. Sadly, it’s late in the day and we only caught fifteen minutes of touring the Fort before it closed. 

We headed back down to the beach and went for a swim while Jack took photos and Ellie sketched. It’s another glorious sunset in the Keys!

When we got back to the RV, our new roof racks have arrived to retrofit the Jeep for our paddle boards. Sadly, they’ve been damaged in transit and I had to reach back to BackCountry to get a replacement. We’re on a tight timeline and this may end up meaning a redirect to our next long stay RV park over in Naples.

We headed back down to the beach and went for a swim while Jack took photos and Ellie sketched. It’s another glorious sunset in the Keys!

Sailing Tahiti to Australia | Month 2 FP

Here is what our second month living on our boat, Hanavave, in Tahiti, French Polynesia, was like.

Our trip to Australia was delayed due to port closures throughout the South Pacific. We spent the month making improvements to Hanavave so that we could make the passage to Australia with fewer stops.
