Welcome to the cruising blog of Wayne and Michele Sharp!

If you want to learn a little bit about cruising, satisfy your curiosity, live vicariously, or be entertained, I think you've come to the right place.

Feel free to ask questions or post comments in the comment section of each post; I will respond to all of them. You can also email us at reluctantsailor@me.com.

We've written a book based on the blog from our first journey in 2007 - Adventures of a Once Reluctant Sailor: A Journey of Guts, Growth, and Grace. It is available online from my website at reluctantsailor.net, and from Apostle Islands Booksellers, Copperfish Books, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. Your local bookstore can also order it for you. We've included over 170 color and black and white photos.

St. James City

We're happily anchored off St. James City on the south end of Pine Island, surrounded by many dolphin families to delight us and welcome us home. We have never seen a dolphin in the Bahamas, and we've spent about fourteen weeks there, but we can always count on them to be here waiting to welcome us home at one of our last anchorages of a long trip.

Note to selves: Do try to avoid the area between Fort Myers Beach and here on Sundays. The boat traffic - 99% power boaters - is horrific and they seem to know nothing about boating etiquette. We told ourselves that on the way down, but forgot.

Tomorrow we have a short distance to travel to Pelican Bay, where we will meet up with some of our Mariners of PGI friends, who are on a three-night cruise. We'll be home on Tuesday.

Everyone in our group has made it back from the Bahamas now. Ginny C and Change arrived in Palm Beach today.

Busy day at Fort Myers Beach
If you zoom in, you can see three people up there -
there's a very small person in the middle.
