I'd rather sit out a storm in a house than on the boat

Here in Australia we have had the longest hottest summer since I moved home from the Caribbean and winter just never seemed to arrive. Even May was still quite warm, but now June has arrived with a bang.  All of last week there were flood warnings for the upcoming weekend while during the week the sun shone down. This photo shows the calm before the storm. On our property here in a lush valley we have no town water, we have only tanks to collect and store the water for our household, not unlike a boat actually!  With flood warnings in place I was shimmying around the roof of our cottage cleaning out the gutters to make sure there could...

FREE download - how to wear a sarong

There are so many uses for one simple rectangular piece of pure cotton. Wear your sarong as a scarf, a halter dress, a strapless dress, a long skirt, a mini skirt, a kimono cardi, a shorts suit.   Follow our pinterest board for new ideas and how-to instructions.  Aside from just wearing your sarong, take it on vacation with you and hang it overhead for shade, swaddle the baby, use it as a substitute towel on the beach (they dry fast), use it to keep your hair off your face.... and then you can use it as a decorative table runner when you get back home.   Click HERE for our FREE download of 3 simple ways to tie a sarong.

How it all began...

We had been working for a couple of years in St.Maarten and saving all our $ to go sailing again, we had a new boat we had bought very cheap at a boatyard auction but was in quite a state, so we had worked very hard to do her up.   Our baby was now 2 and the perfect age for sailing. While we were sailing I was creating beaded jewelry in the colors of the Caribbean Sea, which I already had an obsession about.  I used crystals, glass beads and LARIMAR which is the gem stone of the Caribbean, only found in Dominican Republic.   I had all the beads stored underneath the big navigation table, so I would...

Tobago memories found at WWIN Show, Las Vegas....

The cricket was on the radio in the customs office of Tobago when we arrived to clear in at our first Caribbean island.  It was an ice breaker between us exhausted ocean-crossing sailors and the Tobagoan customs officers, as the West Indies cricket team were playing the Australian cricket team... luckily they were winning, so they were happy.  After a total of 55 days at sea, with only 3 stops, we couldn't be happier either.   Scarborough is the capital of Tobago, and it is a crazy busy, chaotic town, FULL of loud reggae music and bright colors.  An enormous contrast to our quiet life of survival at sea.  We stayed long enough to fill up the boat with fresh water...
