Summer Anchorages

Connie and I anchored with Marri and Dave in the US Gulf Island after celebrating her 50th with her family and friends.

Connie and I relaxing on the aft deck of our beautiful Rhodes77. For the past 15 months we have enjoyed life as liveaboards. We have sailed 267 nm and have had 127 friends & family aboard. So many laughs and a few cries, but mostly great stories and experiences. We look forward to sharing our future adventures with our future crew. #sailing #liveaboard #aroundtheworld
