Accidental Sailor Girl



There I was, walking around the Clearwater Lake campground when I saw an interesting VW camper van. It's a real classic, and with solar panels on the roof to boot. It looked really familiar for some reason.

Then I ran into someone I recognized. It was Pete walking his dog. His girlfriend, Kourtney, was at the van. We had never met, but I've been a fan of Kourtney's youtube channel, Accidental Sailor Girl, for a long time.

I introduced myself and told them I was a youtube follower. That evening we sat around the fire and had a wonderful time and most excellent conversation. Always a pleasure to talk sailing and sailboats with people who are living the dream.

They are just as nice in real life as they appear on the channel. It was a treat to get to know them in real life. Pete invited us to stop in at his shop in St. Augustine when we are in the area. My lovely wife and I invited to our place in New Hampshire when they are in the area.

So that's why my blog was late getting posted. Sometimes you live life instead of writing about it.

    1. Indeed. It's very cool and one of those unexpected neat things that can happen while on the road.

  3. I like that you changed it to where you don't have to click for every post and can just scroll. I'm finally getting used to using my laptop to blog, but I'm a slow learner. There were a few things on my desktop that weren't backed up, so I may try to see if they can be salvaged or the thing fixed. Glad things seem to be going well for you.

    1. Thanks Gorges. It's generally been a good trip. I'm feeling good being able to breath again!
