"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you
didn't do, than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away
from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover."

-Mark Twain

Presque Isle & Erie, PA

Yea! We are once again in the good ole' USA.  The run from Port Colborne was about 65 miles across Lake Erie, we arrived in Erie, PA on Tuesday around 4:30.  Thankfully there was a break in the weather,  the lake was a little roley, but not bad.  Checking into customs was as easy as as a phone call.

Today is Jim's birthday, his second birthday on this trip.  We had a nice day walking around town, and his birthday dinner was pizza hut pizza!  Only the best for the captain!

Vermilion, our home port is approximately 120 miles from Erie PA, if weather holds and we travel everyday, we will be home in 3 days.  This is where it gets bittersweet, our adventure has been a great experience, but being away from family & friends for over a year has been tough. And now we are within days of being back home, and I think we will miss the boat.   When we have 3 ft of snow in the middle of February, I know we will miss the Florida Keys.
