Awesomeness Here!!!

Hello again! 
Its been a while. I know, I know, "Where have you been? Why haven't you blogged? Why are you so freakishly awesome?" Well, we eventually ended up in Annapolis, Maryland for the boat show occurring there, and while we were there, our boat started costing more, and more, and more money, so much that we eventually had to sell it :-(. In happier news, I finally turned thirteen! For my birthday, I had Key Lime Pie (my favorite!), and I got a bracelet from my sister and new E-books from my parents! Thanks guys!  
After we got land-locked, we leased a grayish-blue Subaru Outback and began heading south for the winter. As we went down, we stayed with various friends down the coast, got to Florida, stayed in a good friend's cabin for a couple of weeks, left again to rent a house from that good friend of ours and that is where we will be for the next couple of months. Oh, and we went up north again to Alabama for Christmas at our grandparents house. So, I'm sorry about the not blogging thing. I hope I remember to keep going. and to your last question, I am just naturally that way ;-).

The First Few

The First Few


Heeeeeeeyyyyyyy my favoriiii fanzzzzzz!!!!! How yalz doin??? So, sorry I haven’t typed in a while (no Wi-Fi and all that:-p), so I’m gonna make it up to you by typing all of the places we’ve gone down on ONLY ONE DOCUMENT! YAYYYYYYY!!!

New York City, NY:

                For my friends in NY, you guys have been to NYC before, right? Well, it’s not all skyscrapers and pop stars. There is also a scenic part of it, too. We anchored in a small anchorage right near Ellis Island, and the parks are WONDERFUL.  There are lots of trees to rest under, and fields to play on! There were even Segway’s you could rent!!!! Here are some pics:


Sandy Hook, NJ:

                 So far, we’ve stayed the longest in Sandy Hook. Turns out that the docks near our anchorage were completely torn apart from Sandy, and they had to rebuild all of them! Lots of ships were lost, too, and some of them still are! When we were on the beach (which wasn’t actually half bad), sometimes you could find debris, like brick or wood from the houses. In whole, sandy hook was a really pretty place, with lots of cute little shops and tons of nice people. Oh, and we celebrated my sister’s birthday there, too. Happy B-day, sis! Ok, now, wanna see some more pics? 

Atlantic City, NJ:

                Four words: Mi-ni Ve-gas. There where billions of casinos, and even more clubs. There was one we went into (don’t worry, we didn’t go into the gambling-so-no-kids-allowed area) called the Golden Nugget (*snort*). It held the largest nugget of gold in the world on display! It was pretty cool. My sister even met some band members that played out on the deck! We also went into a neat little aquarium where we pet sharks and were given a demonstration on chinchillas (OMG I WANT ONE!!!). And here are the last of the pics:


We Finally Left!

I’m not sure I actually believe it. At exactly 9:40 am on Tuesday, September 3rd, we officially left dock and started our journey down the coast to the Caribbean. This might be a short blog, because I don’t know what to say. I guess, thank you to all of the people that made this possible. Thanks to Scarano boatyard, AYC dockage, and all of the people that helped us make this trip possible and supported us all of the way. Thanks, and I promise to post all of the pictures of the places that we go and to be back before you know it. Keep commenting!

Nearly Thirteen

       being nearly thirteen is so HARD. when you turn thirteen, you get a whole load more privileges than when you are twelve. I've made a list:

1. You are allowed to watch PG13 movies whenever you want
2. You don't need to wear a life vest when you walk on the dock
3. In restaurant terms you are considered a responsible adult
4. you can finally call yourself a teenager and not just a "tween"
5. you are one more year closer to be able to work at the humane society!!!! (I luv puppies!)
6. I finally get to say an age that looks much closer to my height! (being tall has my advantages, but it can also be reeeeaaaallllyyyy annoying!)

       And the list goes on. see? When you are nearly thirteen, all of those privileges have to wait! I don't get it. I don't suddenly think or feel differently on my birthday. I feel and think the same way I always have. I think. sure, I'm a bit smarter in school, but if we are going as age being a maturity level, I've been thirteen, fourteen and fifteen since, like, the fourth grade. do you see my dilemma?
UUUUUGGGGGGGHHHHHH! I should be working in the humane society going on my fourth year by now!!! I hate being nearly thirteen!

         so, I just got back from a cruise in the Mediterranean, (which my family did because we didn't think that we could sail there) and let me tell you, that was the first time that I have left the states (other than South Canada, which barely counts) AND IT IS SOOOOOOOOOO DIFFERENT!!! you see people smoking in public places! people swim naked! if you go into a Turkish store, you have to like, buy something! (and even though these are negative things, everything else was AWESOME!)
        my favorite place was Mykonos, a Greek island that's buildings glow white in the bright shining sun, and the ancient temples and shrines and amphitheaters were incredible! just imagine, people thousands of years ago building great feats of art and building structure. in the amphitheaters, the Greeks didn't even need to raise there voices during plays or speeches to be heard because of how well the theaters where designed! even today, scientists are befuddled on how the Greeks did it, because they cant even recreate it! amazing, right?
        I also found  that I liked London, because I liked their fish and chips and their accents are always fun to listen to (;-)). the Buckingham palace was also fun to look at, and I got to see the crown jewels! as my sister always says, "oooh, spaaaaarrrrkkkllllyyyyy...." you got that right, sis!
       in whole, Europe was a very fascinating place.  if you have never gone, go. if you have, go again. TTYL, and keep commenting!

         So, I haven't posted in a while because now that our boat is in Albany,  all we are doing is some minor touch-ups. I'm bored,  so I am writing this. By the way, when I blog to you, I am actually typing about things that have already happened.  So what you see posted, actually probably happened a few days before!

Well, that is it. L8r! Please post comments!

New York, New York

       have you ever been to New York, New York? the sights there are awesome! you can see the statue of liberty (and really up close if you are on a boat! :-)), helicopters whizzing by, the large crowd of sight-seers, and really, really tall buildings! I SAW THE FREEDOM TOWER! here are the pics I took while I was there (please note that  the pictures might be lopsided, but you try and take a picture in a crowded city on a rocking boat!):

(sorry that there are no pictures of the statue of liberty or the freedom tower. I seemed to have misplaced them and I will post them ASAP.)
