Travel Day | Yankeetown, FL to Navarre Beach, FL
ODOMETER: 81,401 | TODAY’S MILES: 355 | MILES TRAVELED: 3,456
It’s a long travel day, over 350 miles, so we get started early and try and get on the road in time to arrive before dark in Navarre Beach, FL.
We’ve really enjoyed our time at B’s RV Park and Marina and hope to come back sometime in the future. We checked out of the park and grabbed our stickers that had arrived just in the nick of time. They look awesome and set a nice tone for our next leg of the adventure. Jana is so talented, designing these stickers, the logo, our website and purveying all our social media. She’s a literal one woman band!
The trip up the coast is relatively uneventful. The view as we hug the coastline is absolutely stunning. They call this “The Forgotten Coast,” but it is unforgettable. As we come through Miramar Beach, the traffic is brutal and we crawl
our way North. We finally get to Navarre Beach just after sunset. We are staying at the Emerald Beach RV Resort and lucked out with the best spot in the park.
We are located in the back corner, on the beach, right next to the Beach Dog Park.
The view as we hug the coastline is absolutely stunning.

After having waited in French Polynesia for two and a half months, we excitedly sailed out of Bora Bora around 7:30 am on Saturday, September 4th. Like the rest of French Polynesia, Bora Bora was in COVID lockdown, and we had spent the last week waiting for our departure paperwork to go through all the requisite bureaucratic channels. This required multiple trips to the local gendarmerie (police station), where Grant quickly befriended the two kind and helpful officers, Alex and Bruno.
It took us about 24 hours to get from Mo’orea to Bora Bora on August 28 2021. Like the rest of French Polynesia, Bora Bora was in COVID lockdown, and we spent a week there waiting for our departure paperwork to go through all the requisite bureaucratic channels. This required multiple trips to the local gendarmerie (police station), where Grant quickly befriended the two kind and helpful officers, Alex and Bruno.
We made trips to get water, fuel and provisions, but apart from that we had to stay on the boat. We passed the time snorkeling (saw a giant moray eel!) and inventing new water sports.
Once we received our exit paperwork, we were finally free to leave for Fiji.
These are our personal thoughts on some of our experiences.
