we have our heading

we are setting sail for Charleston this weekend and I may not have internet.
but I will blog whenever I do.
as for new stuff in Oriental, there isn't much but we did see some jellyfish: yes that blob like bubble is a jellyfish,
I know it isn't the best picture but that was the best I could do.
they're kind of scary cause there are just so many.
I am sooo excited cause I get my cast of like a week earlyer (woo hoo!!!!!!)
alright that is all for now
so until next time (whenever that is)

Officially a Vampire

woo hoo!!
I finally turned Fourteen. I am sooo happy, can you tell how happy I am? huh, can you??
alright I finally got the pic of the new name on our boat
so here she is the majestic...

so what do you think?
do you like it?? please leave a comment telling me what you think (and be truthful, if you don't like it just say so)
despite the picture we are now back in the water.
we are still at my grandparents cause the boat yard people are still working on our boat :-(
but we'll be back on soon enough.
we were invaded by pirates last week

but, even one handed, I fended them of and was crowned champion of the east coast.
no just kidding, they were actually replicas of two of Columbus's ships heading two Beaufort for, uh, something.
alright that is all I can think of right now
but I will have hopefully a lot more once we leave the dock.
til then
p.s. the former name of our boat was Spotted Moose, which was named after the former owner's cat (see why we changed it?)

a little R&R

so my plan of having a pic of the boats name isn't going to work today
cause I am at my grandparents so I'll have to
fill in with something else.
like...oh yeah

I broke my knuckle,
it's nothing special. just a splint for four weeks, which means I can't sail.

um, let's see what other things I can come up with

ok, my grandparents have this big library full of old books, which include:

moby dick

robinson crusoe

alice's adventures in wonderland

the complete works of shakespear
and 96 more

also they have a super awesome latin work book
published exactly two-hundred years ago in Edinburgh, Scotland

ok, that's all I have for today
so til next week

hey..why aren't we moving?


so first, I lost internet and that is why I didn't blog yesterday
and as for the 'why aren't we moving' thing, well, I'll just let you figure that out

that (to answer your question) is the bottom of our boat
and yes, it is out of the water.
you see, we had to be hauled out so that we could get some work done on the boat
and now, the picture you have all been waiting for

our boat!!

alright and now here are the pics of the other boats I like:

the Green Dolphin

Mongoose Magic



this doesn't have a name :(

Honey Wind



and our first ghostship (which is in the slip next to ours)


now, those are just a fraction of the boats I've seen so far

so I might start putting more on every now and then
alright, I guess that's all for now

I've got to go help putting our new name on the stern of our boat

and I am not telling you the new name til next week when I will have a picture

of the name on the boat

so until next time

this is


Signing out
p.s. I got to take the helm

catching up, bad hair day


again I am sorry that I am the worst blogger ever. but now as long as I have internet I will try to do it every monday, so start checking then.

OK, this was forever ago but we went to the 5th annual dog parade here are some pics:

the dog parade is where you dress up your dog and walk around town, there are like twelve categories and winners for all of them, take max (last pic) who dressed up like Dorothy and won best over all.

I had a very bad hair day yesterday:

so I ended up wearing a hat all day, which was awful cause I was in the sun and it was like 85 degrees, and 75% humidity.

so this trimaran pulled up today and I got to help it tie itself to the dock, it was really cool.

I will have a picture of me on the boat next monday (which was requested by at least three of my friends) and some pics of the boats I've seen so far (including the trimaran).

til then

fair winds and safe harbors,

p.s. forest if you still check my blog this is for you...
