Mary and I have finally gotten around to updating our website.  Guess what!  Most of the content can now be hosted elsewhere. So please choose from the top menu what you would like to see. Some articles will remain here, but most of our current happenings will be posted elsewhere.

Also, Mary has retired from actively marketing and selling her Jewelry. If you are intrested in her work, please contact her directly.

Articles on Cruising in Mexico, The Gold Coast Cruisers Guide, Barra Lagoon Waypoints, Barra Town Map, and Net Controllers "Cheat Sheet" are now located under the "Sailing/Mexico" menu item above.

Recipes, including our "Oatty Bar" recipe (ideal cycling snacks), Chile Recipes, and Mulitgrain Bread Recipe can be found in our blog.  To see all our posted recipes, click this link.

You can access our Facebook, Google+, Strava (for bicycling), LinkedIn (Bill's CV), Flickr (where we're putting Photos in addition to Facebook), and YouTube (for Videos) all in the above Menu.  Just hover over "Bill" for Bill's links, hover over "Mary" for Mary's links, and Photos or Videos to go to Flickr or YouTube.

Hi folks - yes, it's true.  We had a great 16 years owning and sailing Raptor Dance. 

We did 6+ years cruising full time and had a blast!

But was time to move on and we sold her in April 2016.

We are keeping this website and domain as the new owner decided to change her name.


Mary and I played extras in a commercial for Tuxton China in 2013.  Here's the directors cut version.  We're at the table in the back.
