We are Frank and Carrie, married (to each other) these past 27 years and still in love. We enjoy our home, our family, our friends and our work. We also love boats! In fact, we fell in love on a boat nearly thirty years ago. We are off on the adventure of a lifetime. It is something we have been dreaming, planning and scheming to do for several years. Once Around is our boat, purchased especially for the trip. Join us as we circumnavigate the eastern third of the US at about 10 knots!

Bra and Knee Pads
I have been inside a total of exactly two Walmart Supercenters in my life. Loopers say Walmart is your best friend on the loop because you can get anything there from groceries to Mrs. Howell's manicures. I am beginning to understand.
After crawling around the engine rooms and bilges of a few boats earlier this week, my knees were begining to ache and bruise. Carrie also managed to pack only one bra for this trip and when I suggested she go without for the remainder, the Admiral gave me a piercing glare. I couldn't think of any alternative that would carry both bras and knee pads, so, off we go to Walmart.
Now, I know there are a lot of strange folks in Walmart late at night, but still, Ginger got a raise of the clerk's eyebrows when she went through with her bra and knee pads! I just gave him a wink!
