Merry Christmas!

Full Circle
This year, we have come full circle. 360 degrees, if you will, since setting out for seas unknown and then returning to the place that feels like home. Or a difference of 100 degrees if we are talking about the swing in temperature between last Christmas in Jamaica or this Christmas in the frosty Northwest.

2013 saw us depart Jamaica for the Windward Passage, a float through the idyllic Bahamian Islands, the rivers and wetlands of Florida, a mechanically-challenged cross-country road trip, the decision to continue living aboard Silver Lining, the ‘summer of love’ (8 weddings!), Ashley’s return to work, and Elan’s search for the next big thing.

Here are some pictures from the last few weeks.


Foggy afternoon



I have always wanted to hang Christmas lights up the mast, and we finally did it this year for the first time.


Snow Dog

Whether on sea or land, we are so grateful to live a life of adventure and be surrounded by people we love. We wish you the Merriest Christmas and all the best for 2014.

Elan & Ashley

  1. We’ll be up in Bellingham on New Year’s Eve if you guys are around. Maybe the next few days as well then to canada for a few days. Let me know if you’d like to get a drink or meet up for lunch/dinner.

  2. Happy Holidays you two and the snow dog too! Best wishes for the New Year. What adventures will it bring? Sending you Love and Blessings.
