Sections Skip to content Skip to site index With a barely-4-year-old and a not-quite-2-year-old, in a 32-foot boat sailing up the Inside Passage, a family discovers the best rewards are those never imagined. Credit Credit Caroline Van Hemert Supported by ByCaroline Van Hemert May 13, 2019 This was the third time I’d sailed up the Inside Passage in a boat. The third time I’d watched surf explode from the rocky headlands of northern Vancouver Island, the swell rhythmically shifting my view of the horizon. The umpteenth time I’d listened to the weather forecast on the VHF radio while gulls catapulted past me in the wind. But it was the first time I’d done a trip like this with young children on board. Last June, in the lengthening days of summer, my husband, Pat, and I launched north from Bellingham, Wash., on a 32-foot … [Read more...] about Sailing in Treacherous Waters to Alaska.

Credit Credit Scott McIntyre for The New York Times Supported by ByElaine Glusac Dec. 17, 2018 Seagulls and squadrons of brown pelicans flew alongside my rented Hyundai as I drove across the astonishing seven-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 1 that runs across Moser Sound, just south of Marathon, in the Florida Keys.

Henry Flagler, an early … [Read more...] about 44 Islands and 42 Bridges: A Florida Keys Road Trip

Silently and with a sense of urgency I didn’t yet understand, I jumped off a dinghy and swam through cold waves up to the beach, squeezed through narrow openings between granite boulders, waded across shallow pools, ducked into caves and gingerly descended a series of makeshift ladders, many of the driftwood steps lost to the surrounding sea a long time ago. There, as the early morning sun streamed through openings in the cave, I listened to the rarest sound on the island of Virgin Gorda: silence. My two friends and I, along with our captain-turned-tour-guide, had achieved the impossible. We had “the Baths” all to ourselves. The Baths are the geological wonder of the British Virgin Islands. Towering granite boulders join together to form a cavelike network, allowing sunbeams to illuminate the crystal-clear swimming pools below in an ethereal, time-suspending way. The serenity didn’t last long, as strangers’ … [Read more...] about Chart your own course to a sailing adventure in the British Virgin Islands
