Satisfaction is guaranteed with every order. This is a book for retirees, armchair sailors, dreamers, and lovers of the wind and sea. Learning to sail overnight and anchoring in new places felt exhilarating.
And along the way, I grew sea legs. Our first year, we explored the desert islands in the Sea of Cortez. We learned to spearfish and the kids learned Spanish. We dropped in on small villages and bought fresh goat cheese or handmade tortillas. I kept a spreadsheet of all our expenses. We anchored out, mostly to avoid paying marina fees, and we cooked on the boat more frequently than we ate out. But we hauled Windfall out of the water in La Paz, Mexico, to paint the bottom, and we made three road trips to the U.
We also bought a new volt freezer. There were other ways we saved money by sailing. We had several solar panels to power our refrigerator, computers, blender, and other appliances. Our portable generator backed us up on cloudy days. Our water maker made salt water drinkable and ran off the solar.
When the children grew, we upgraded to a larger boat and sold Windfall.

While tourists pay a small fortune for their view of turquoise waves curling gently upon soft-sand beaches, we enjoyed the same view as long as we wanted…for free. In , our son Timothy was almost At one point, we stayed in La Paz, on the southern end of the Baja Peninsula, for almost two years. Its large expat community offered a range of activities.
Jim worked on websites for income and I traded office management duties with a local sailmaker. We ate like the locals. Shrimp and fish tacos were cheap and tasty. And we found the healthcare in La Paz to be very modern. Meanwhile, my sisters back home were forking out thousands of dollars per child for braces.http://immunocal.pl/media/gear/handy-cam-ueberwachung.php
Living The Dream: Becoming A Full-Time Cruiser
We also landed a housesit for a few months in a luxurious home with a pool, gardener, and maid. Timothy moved back to the U. It took us 23 days to sail across the Pacific Ocean to the islands of French Polynesia in We stopped for boat parts in American Samoa. There, I quickly landed a teaching job at a private school and Carolyne attended her freshman year of high school. On weekends we enjoyed hiking rainforest trails to hidden waterfalls or diving on the coral reefs.
Our children have interacted with different cultures and speak other languages.
Pursuing the Dream
Jim and I have found several spots ideal for retirement along the way. But our plans change with the weather. Fiji has many possibilities. Or maybe Asia is next….
First Steps: We began researching boat models and prices on websites like Yachtworld. Then we visited several seaside marinas to look at their boats for sale.
