Happy Thanksgiving 2012!


It is hard to imagine that it was an entire year ago that we spent Thanksgiving aboard Velocir in St. Mary’s, GA:  https://velocir.com/2011/11/24/happy-thanksgiving/

How time flies!  We are thankful for family and friends this holiday season.  Grant is thankful for our good health, Amelia is thankful for a life full of joy and Crew is thankful for treats……anything for treats.

Happy Thanksgiving from Velocir

Last month Velocir made it through hurricane Sandy’s strong winds unscathed. To prepare, we secured many lines to different connection points on Velocir and the dock. She was protected in her cove from the wind, so we just kept ready in case something happened but it was very mild. Our biggest fear was a tree falling, but luckily they held tight!

Winterizing Velocir

This week we winterized Velocir in anticipation of the long cold winter months ahead.  We used environmentally safe anti-freeze and emptied the water tanks.  There was a little fish in our water filter, so we set him free.

Sailing Velocir

We even got out for a weekend sail with friends in mid-November, yay warm weather!  The fall colors are a beautiful time to explore the tree-lined creeks of the Chesapeake Bay.

So much to be thankful for.  Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Hey guys, we have watched quite a few videos of yours and LOVE your narrative ways. We will be in the Bahamas in May for a couple of months and are intrigued by what insight that you have. I don’t see any way to get ahold of you to send a personal message. Am I missing something? An icon or a facebook account? What is your email address?
