Intro

I have dreamed of sailing the seas since childhood. After years of family living, IT career and multitude of hobbies, I am following up on that dream. It is an open ended journey - no fixed plans and no end date - the time will tell.

My wife joins me on this adventure. As we sail, we learn not to rush, but rather to enjoy the life and beauty of the places we are in - staying as long as we like and moving on when new horizons catch our imagination.

This website is a casual photo chronicle of our journey - a more-or-less daily journal of pretty much what we have seen.
~~ Captain Alex

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Cruising Georgian Bay Ontario on Disco

We enjoyed cruising tropics on a sailboat during winter months so much... Then COVID hit and border restrictions made travel difficult. So, how about summer in Ontario? It is home of the largest and undoubtedly best fresh water cruising grounds in the world! So I bought a modest classic motor cruiser to explore tens of thousands islands of Great Lakes and surrounding waterways. Starting with Georgian Bay, Lake Huron.

Cruising Georgian Bay, Lake Huron

Log#: 301
LatLon: 45°9.963'N 080°7.482'W

It took quite a bit of time and $$$ for Disco to become a cruiser in my sense - it needed numerous repairs and upgrades: engine service (single economical diesel!), navigation instruments, solar panels, rigid rooftop, RO water filtration system and many other things.
During first couple of seasons, we cruised Georgian Bay - from Honey Harbour in the South to the French River / Bastard Islands in the North. The scenery of many places is simply breathtaking. Comparing to the cruising in tropics, sand is replaced by rock, palm trees by pine and spruce, and salty water by fresh.
