It’s written in gold!

Yes Dear passed safely into the Twin Cities Marina harbor with flying colors, bringing us wandering swashbucklers home. Our dream is realized.

We will be living on the boat until it goes on the hard for the winter.  Stop by and spin a yarn with us! Twin Cities Marina, mile 830, Inver Grove Heights, MN

One more dock and no more locks!

Grey Cloud ~ mile 827. It’s a pretty solid chunk of rock here

Our new home

I think we are going to fit right in here.

Closing Comments: Pray for the Bahamas. We are truly blessed that we had the opportunity to visit them before they were hit by Hurricane Dorian.
