By the end of the second week Bee Weems is in the waters of Ontario, Canada. We have been on 5 distinct waterways this week. Our last day on the Erie canal was Saturday, the 19th. We saw more people on the waterway that day then we did the whole week previously - quite a few local recreational fishermen, kayakers, waterskiiers, etc. But still no "loopers". That's the name given to cruisers who loop into the Great Lakes from the Hudson River or St. Lawrence Seaway and then down the Mississippi into the Gulf of Mexico to Florida and back up the Intercoastal Waterway of the Eastern Se......

Funny how living on the water offers up many diversions that "land people" just don't get to experience. I guess it's about the wonderful impermanence of our living arrangements.

And so it is with those who live on the water. Boats and lives coming and...... Read More

I haven’t paid such close attention to the weather since fall of 2001. In July of that year, the boys and I had our last big adventure before this one, an 8,000-mile cross-country camping trip. In August, I led a 10-day charter in the Leeward Islands of French Polynesia, the second and last time I was here before now.

The Odyssey, written by Homer around 1000 B.C., describes the Greek warrior Odysseus’ long journey home to Ithaca after his attack on Troy on the west coast of present-day Turkey. It wasn’t a cheery journey; in fact, it was about delays and obstructions and messy deaths. The captain disliked the grey sea and fickle winds, the toil of shipboard life, the distances, the inconveniences, the dangers. The crew was complaining and fearful.
