Bicycling in Petersburg
June 20, 2007 We are going to stay in Petersburg for another day and have a look around on our bikes. The weather is iffy, so we take our rain gear. Half way through our bike trip I am too hot! It turned out to be another beautiful day, some clouds, but mostly nice. This is a perfect little town for biking in… we did a loop around town and then head south a little ways. On our way back we decided to stop for a cuppa and we start taking to a couple of sailors from Ft Lauderdale (originally from New York) who have kept their boat in Petersburg for the last 5 years but are getting it ready to head south to Seattle. They give us some tips on where to go and what to see.
Kathy & Jerry.......love exploring the Gulf Islands and coastal waters of British Columbia on our sailboat. We also have become fond of exploring central Mexico during the winter months, and hanging out in the small town of Ajijic. We hope our photos and blogging will give you the chance to experience the same, and maybe inspire you to do some exploring yourself.
New crew member
We welcome aboard our newest crew.... Maggie. She joined our family this spring on March 23. She celebrated her first birthday on April 27th. She is very smart, so we are hopeful that she will learn her new duties quickly.
Splendid Mane is a 2002 Beneteau 393, 40 feet in lenght. We have radar, color chartplotter, 56 hp yanmar engine, autopilot, autostream feathering propeller, dingy with 6hp engine, dodger with full enclosure, two staterooms, two heads, fully equipped galley, and lots more extras. It is a safe, comfortable boat for two people but would be easy to sail singlehanded as well.
