This is probably the second most common question we get behind “Wait, you’re doing what!?!” The short answer is, to take some time to experience the world, to slow down, reset our expectations of things to come and enjoy the world that God created. For more, click here.
To help give you a picture of where we’re headed, we’ve drafted the map below of our intended cruising route from Texas to Florida along the Gulf Coast and throughout the Bahamas and Caribbean. You’ll notice that this course is generally plotted and shows us cutting across land. No, our boat doesn’t magically hop over land (though it would be a nice feature). We will be following the coastline but plotted a general route here in Google Maps.
The inaugural cruising route plan
- From Texas to Florida along the Gulf Coast by way of the ICW and hops through the Gulf.
- From Florida, we will head to the Bahamas and Exumas, some of the most fabled cruising grounds in Western Hemisphere.
- After some yet to be determined amount of time in the Bahamas, we will head to Turks and Caicos, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.
- Rounding out the end of the cruise before hurricane season starts, we will get to South America by way of places like Antigua, Martinique, and St Lucia.
This quick post makes it seem short and sweet. Hopefully our trip will be the latter. More exciting details to share within the next couple weeks!
