Well we aren’t really bloggers, but then we weren’t really ready to become homeless either.  In any event this website hopefully will help anybody interested to stay somewhat current on our travels and travails.  If you want to know more about us, you can read the “About Us” page.  Duh.  The “Follow” button at the bottom apparently will get our updates delivered to your email in-box.  (WordPress swears that nobody will get your address.)  These updates may range from a sentence or two to Doug’s awesome drone videos or Dana’s even more awesome photos of sunsets and sunrises and landscapes and seascapes and wildlife.  And if we don’t make it back from the high seas–and by high seas we mean mostly shallow waters near sheltered marinas–at least our electronic diary will allow future generations to marvel at our stupidity.

If anyone wants to see where we are in real time, Marine Traffic and Vessel Finder track our AIS transponder.  Just put in Misty Pearl.  Don’t buy the app.  Sometimes they’re quite a bit behind though.  In fact, they both kind of suck.

UPDATE 6/25/2020

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.

  1. Hi Guys, I spent a good chunk of my day reading the entire collection. Hilarious and inspiring all in one. Thanks for sharing. Charley

    1. Hi Charley. Thanks for the kind words. We are loving life, although it’s hotter than blazes today.

    2. Hi Dana and Doug! It was truly a pleasure meeting you yesterday! The girls (Emma and Addison) we’re thrilled to climb aboard your beautiful vessel while docked at Schuyler Yacht Basin overnight. We’re having a slower start today, but I’m certain we will be causing some confusion again very soon among the Lock Masters In Champlain Canal. We will give a honk and some exciting waves if we approach and pass by the Misty Pearl. We will be following your blog to keep track of your exciting travels.

      Happy Boating,

      Tom Krzycki & Wendy Corbino

      1. Hi Tom and Wendy and Emma and Addison! Great to meet fellow Pearls. Maybe we’ll see you up the lake somewhere. Take care.

  2. Thanks to Jeff for putting me in touch with your blog. I will only lurk a little but will live a lot vicariously. Stay safe because selfishly I want to read lots more posts.

    1. Thanks and no worries about lurking. Thats why we make our travel notes public. BTW, Jeff says your husband needs a drone . . . .
