Dachshunds are kind of low-slung, so when the docks are wet, they get carried to the nearest plot of grass. Are these sailing wiener dogs spoiled?  Nah .........

September 2006

Forget those fancy metal stands they use in the US -- the Turks use tree trunks! Here’s Liberty tucked away in Turkey for the winter.  First time we saw the boats propped up on sticks, we had a fit. Now that it’s our turn, we see that she’s good and secure.

Ty, Suzanne, and Rudy enjoy a glass of Retsina at a waterside taverna in Gaios on the island of Paxos, with our cruising guest, Jim. Liberty lies med moored to the sea wall behind us with her stern anchor out.  We love Greece!

April 2006

Here’s Liberty in Gaeta, Italy.  We two retired Navy officers felt right at home and were mighty proud to be anchored next to the US 6th Fleet Flagship, the USS MOUNT WHITNEY.   (You’ll notice we’re flying our US flag and Navy and Marine Corps flags)

Rick White photo

March 2006

A former colleague of Suzanne’s, Lieutenant Colonel Rick White, US Army, contacted us through our web site. He’s on his third tour in Iraq and recently noticed one of his soldiers in their Tactical Operations Center reading Cruising World magazine. He emailed us to tell us how surprised he was to see Suzanne as one of the Boat of the Year judges in the issue shown in the photo.  Rick is the Deputy Brigade Commander for the 2BCT, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).  Here’s Rick along the banks of the Euphrates. We all send Rick and his soldiers our thanks and prayers. Hooah!

February 2006

This is a photo we took of a poster advertising a new boat brokerage at our marina outside of Rome.  Cruising introduces you to cultural differences... This huge cultural difference may explain why we have seen NO Italian couples cruising!

The proud father, having just “given away” daughter Susan in Havelock, North Carolina, on November 25th. (Help us honor our Susan by reading about her life, which ended far too soon).

Our dog-in-a-bag goes wherever we go.

Rudy the Sailing Wiener Dog thinks it’s pretty cool that he sailed all the way to Italy and now he gets to hang out at places like the leaning tower of Pisa!
