Here are maps of Misty Pearl’s stops along way, right down to our actual slips. (Except for Beaufort, N.C., where D Dock is too new for Google Maps.) Pressing one of the little red balloon-looking thingys on the first map will load up our blog posts related to that spot on The Down East Circle. The second map will do the same for our Great Loop posts.

Misty Pearl on America’s Great Loop
If you want to find out what’s going on without having to remember to track us down, you can follow us to get updates by email. Woo Hoo!
For those who don’t make it through 200+ posts, here’s the spoiler. We completed the Great Loop last June, and completed the Down East Circle last October. We’re self-quarantined aboard for a bit. No more blog posts, but you can see what we’re doing on Instagram. @douganddanaandaboat. #mistypearllife. Created by our much more hip daughters. Although we’ve been pretty bad at it so far.
Despite the logistical difficulties caused by Covid-19, we slowly cruised back down to Deltaville, Virginia, a town we’ve come to know significantly better than should be necessary. Then we returned to our Scottsdale bubble. Given the vagaries of the future, we just sold Misty Pearl to some nice folks who hopefully will enjoy her as much as we did.
The current plan? As soon as possible, buy another boat. Heck, we might even fire the blog up again if we decide to do something interesting.
