Our current location

Where are we now?

Aubrey and Judy left their trailer and Yukon in New Mexico in April to take a Holland America Line cruise ship from Fort Lauderdale around through the Panama Canal to Victoria, B.C. In late May they boarded Veleda IV for this season’s travels. After a week in Vancouver they sailed up the coast to Campbell River where they bought a used 15 hp Johnson two stroke outboard to replace one that died. On up the coast they went from Cortes Island to Port McNeill for a resupply to head further north. They then went around the infamous Cape Caution to Calvert Island and further up the B.C. coast before crossing over to Haida Gwaii (formerly known as the Queen Charlotte Islands). After ten days exploring the Haida Heritage sites they returned to explore more fjords on the mainland before heading back to Vancouver. From Vancouver they are off in August to Victoria, B.C. then across to Port Angeles in Washington State to enter the U.S., then down the west coast to spend the winter in the Mexican Baja and Central America. After that, through the Panama Canal into the Caribbean.
