And so it begins …

Journey notes.

This blog shares random bits and pieces of numerous journeys on a comfy North Pacific trawler, the M/V Exhale.  Launching from our home port in Fort Myers, Florida the first big adventure was a 6,000 mile journey known as the America’s Great Loop (in 2018), we also traversed to the Bahamas twice, and navigated the cool waters of Maine. In 2023 we are embarking on a journey to northeast Canada.
