Where Is Winterlude Today?

One of the best aspects of cruising is changing our backyard anytime we want!  In past years, we’ve enjoyed the isolation and culture of the Kuna on the San Blas Islands of Panama, the outer atolls of Belize, anchored behind a reef in the middle of nowhere – ocean stretching as far as the eye could see (spearfishing was amazing).

For now, back in Southwest Florida, we’ve discovered that even though we’re not currently exploring exotic locales, as long as we just relax and enjoy the ride, there are new fun things to discover every single day.

Up the Rio Dulce famous National Park Canyon…

When we returned from the Western Caribbean, I stopped doing frequent updates because I thought what we were doing was “boring”.   In some respects, I guess it is compared to some of the exotic places we’ve been over the last 12 years & 12,000 miles — but in other respects, there’s something new and fun every single day.  So why not share!

If you’re interested, look at the right hand column on CommuterCruiser.com.  Scroll down, just below “Outfitting”, you’ll see:

 2012 – 2013: Daily Winterlude Update

Click on 2012-2013 Daily Winterlude Update and it’ll take you to my daily blog page.  Currently since we still have internet access, I’ll try to post comments and a few photos daily.  When we get into marginal cell phone reception, it might be less frequently.

Approaching the Cocos Banderos, San Blas Islands, Panama

In the meantime, there will be Commuter Cruiser posts  … usually new posts three times a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

And if you “Like” Commuter Cruiser on Facebook, I usually try to post a popular Commuter Cruiser post from a year ago or so on days I don’t have a brand new post on Commuter Cruiser.  I also try to post a photo of whatever’s happening that day in the afternoon on the Commuter Cruiser FaceBook page just for fun.  So if you’re new to Commuter Cruiser, you might want to “Like” us on Facebook to follow some of the most popular (I hope useful) previous posts.

Approaching Indian Key in the 10,000 Islands/Everglades … certainly not as glamorous as the Cocos Banderos, but still nice cruising!

As always, if there’s a topic that I haven’t covered that you’d like our opinion about, please leave a comment or send me an e-mail!

Cheers & be sure to leave a comment if you’d like something else!   Jan & David
