If all good things must come to an end, then it had to happen sooner or later. After 7 years and nearly 400 tips, DIY projects, yarns, and wordy expressions of opinion, we have decided to end our Monday posts and shut down the website. We will still be sharing tips and great information on our facebook page, and pictures of both the practical and eye candy variety on Instagram. So as we and technology move along, please move with us and like and follow us at either or both of those locations. And as always, feel free to swing by and say hi when you share an anchorage with Eurisko. Thanks for all the support. See you out there.

St. Somewhere Fun

April 17, 2017

The thing about cruising is that you're rarely anywhere boring. If you are, you'll likely not stay long. So when friends and family want a vacation, you are often on the top of their list of destinations. Not that they aren't thrilled to come visit you, but being able to explore somewhere cool at the same time never hurts.

So in lieu of tips or DIY projects this week, I think I'll just share our week as tourists on St. Croix, USVI. Enjoy. And stop by and say hi sometime. I promise we'll be St. Somewhere Fun.

Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers.

And look at ruins.

Did someone leave their dinghy on the beach?

And then four days of rain set in...


Connie McBride's work has been published in Good Old Boat, Sail Magazine, Small Craft Advisor, Cruising World, All at Sea, and Blue Water Sailing. As a full-time liveaboard cruiser for over 15 years, she has written several books and in her spare time, well, who has spare time?

It's here! My latest book, Years of Ideas from a Simple Sailor is now available on Amazon.
