So what's in a name? I wanted to reference something that was deeply personal to me, but also something that other people could relate to. This is not a sailing blog, though I do know how to sail and I love to do it. The new blog name comes from my fond childhood memories of our family taking our 27-foot circa1970 Coronado, the Sunseeker, up to the San Juan Islands each summer for salt air camping trips. We'd glide from island to island where we would hike, run along the beach, set crab pots in the bay, and catch shrimp off the dock. It was the perfect way to spend a summer in the Pacific Northwest.

I still make it up to the islands at least once a year, though I take a ferry these days. It's a beautiful ride, but nothing could compare to the trip made on the Sunseeker. Maybe someday I'll have my own. In the meantime, the memories will be my anchor and sail.
Thanks for coming with me.
