“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

Smitty in the Ice


This picture was taken a couple of weeks ago before we had a prolonged cold snap and the ice got thicker and more prevalent.

The red arrow points to Smitty.

This marina has not experienced ice like this in at least the last 15 winters.  Lucky us! 😉

  1. I can’t imagine being iced in like that! I bet you’re longing for sunshine and reaching breezes right about now. I appreciate the high 50s and sunshine we have been having even more now.


    • And this picture was taken about 3 weeks ago. Last we you could walk on the fairway (I didn’t but some crazy people at the marina did).

      The best thing this winter has done is strengthen our resolve to be far south for next winter.

  2. Oh my that looks cold. That’s coming from a Canadian with a foot and a half of snow in my back yard.
    There is something about being around water and ice that makes me feel colder.
    Lets hope the ice doesn’t last until June like last year. (Lake Huron…)
    Keep warm!

  3. Brrrrrr dude!
    I’ve been following the Boston weather and have eagerly awaiting to hear how you guys have gotten through this winter! Hang in there… it’s almost over!

  4. This winter has meant a fair amount of Netflix and as many inside projects as I can do without tearing the boat apart.

    Another few weeks and the bubble will come down. Then more work to get ready to leave.

  5. Yikes, that looks intense!

    • The intense part was the first night we were woken up by banging on the hull. On outgoing tides pieces of the ice will break free and bang against the hull. Not the best way to wake up! 😉

      Thanks for reading,
