Ahh, the sea... once it casts it's spell, it holds one in it's net of wonder forever.

A visitor at our dock.
This is a Lion's Mane Jellyfish we spotted next to our dock this morning. We normally see them a dark reddish brown colour, so this was an unusual sight for us. The bell on this jelly is about 18" across and the tentacles were probably about 10-12 feet long. I would have liked to get a picture of this one from in the water, that would have been very cool. This jellyfish can give a nasty sting, but not life threatening.
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.
