Hard At Work As The Delivery Crew

Now that Shambala is sold we have become the delivery crew.  Our final destination is currently Green Cove Springs, FL but could be subject to change.  Our plans are always written in the sand.

We have left the Chesapeake behind, it was getting cold.
Samantha is staying warm in the cockpit as we travel south. 

Nicholas is helping the captain keep watch. 

We got to play tourist at Colonial Williamsburg.

Next up is Halloween.  Not sure where we are going to spend it yet but I will post pictures of the costumes soon.

Shambala for Sale!

Shambala has been sold!
I've been waiting to post until it became official. 
As of September 21,2016 Suky Cannon is the new owner of Shambala.
It is a bitter-sweet feeling we have. 
We will miss our life aboard Shambala.
Excitement for our new adventure on land awaits us.
We have become friends with the new owner and know Shambala will continue to have awesome and amazing adventures!
Now we are completing boat projects for the new owner and have become the delivery crew.
We get to stay aboard and deliver the boat to Florida.

In the meantime we have purchased a new project boat.  Hornpipe and a sailing dinghy Blue Chip. Both thanks to an auction at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, MD.
Hornpipe will be on the hard for now until we find a place to bring her to start refitting.

We will keep you updated on our progress possibly in a new blog.

For now we will be figuring out if and when to head down the coast.   With Hurricane Matthew heading this way we aren't going anywhere yet.
