Wingin' It

Home | Our Journal | Where we've been | Contact Us | Photo Album | The Boat

October 2002:  The dream begins:  Ted and Rhonda buy "Tropical Breeze", an O'Day 322 monohull sailboat with plans to sail off June, 2005.

June 2003: We get married on the deck of our boat! 

July 2004:  The dream grows:  We trade up to "Wingin' It", a 36 foot Catamaran. 

June 25th, 2005:  The dream happens:  One day after Ted's retirement, we sail north on the start of a two year voyage; sailing the east coast of the US, the Keys, and the Bahamas. 

September 2007:  The dream changes:  We sell Wingin' It to Seth and Jamie, a young Canadian couple, who plan to sail around the world!  We're gonna see the world too; but in a more relaxed manner.

July 2010:  Time for another big change; we decided to move out of the big city and go into the country.  We found a great house on 3 acres next to Lake Lyman, SC.  We're half way between Greenville and Spartanburg and LIFE IS GOOD!!

Dec 2012:  We decide to add a swimming pool to our house and officially rename the place "Club Ted".  Now Life IS Great!!!

Ya gotta have a dream!
