Celebrating 5 Years!

5 Years of cruising and living aboard Mérengue!

On September 2, 2006 we dropped the lines from our mooring on Lake Michigan and sailed away on our Caribbean adventure.  Since then, we’ve traveled almost 9,000 miles!  It was difficult to pull just a few images from the thousands of pictures we’ve taken so we merged both still photographs and video into a 25 minute video.  Come on, that’s not too long!  That's just 5 minutes per year!  Due to the length, we had to load the video in 2 parts.  So grab a drink, make yourself comfortable and turn up the sound!  Enjoy!

Hope you enjoyed reminiscing with us.
Thank you to our family and friends who have been so supportive of our dream.
Thank you to Connie, Bill, Jill, Kyle, Angela, Muff, Reed, Marcia, Mike, Tim and Natalie for visiting us in the islands.  Natalie wins the prize for visiting 3 times in 13 months!  The prize is a bottle of rum but she has to come collect it in person!
Thank you to the cruising community, those people from all over the world who have become friends.
And thank you to the people of the Caribbean for their hospitality.
