Sailing La Vagabonde

16 օր առաջ

Join us for an up and down few days. The ups of exploring places like Porto Santo in the beautiful sun and the downs of some difficult sailing whilst pregnant, feeling seasick, homesick and stuck on board with a screaming toddler - haha! It's funny now but oh my goodness, I don't know how I survived that trip. The ups definitely outweigh the downs but nevertheless, this is full disclosure of the nomadic life.

I have enjoyed your videos a LONG time! IN 1979, my gf & I sailed all over Bahamas, This song by Little River Band still brings me back to those precious days! "Time for a cool change"! Dave Mason-and Gerry Rafferty were all part of the sailing life style back then. We met these 2 brothers from Fort Meyers, FL. in Nausau, Bahamas casino-we both left in a dinghy to 2 anchored gorgeous sailboats! (we were young and adventurous at 25).(left -25 below in MINN.). Every nite we'd catch dinner, and share ours on the beach w/2 other sail boats. Do you remember the pink sand?? I know Lenny will dance to LRB-" the albatross and the whales they are my brothers". Thank you for sharing all your travels!!!

Elayna, you said that you were craving friends & family more so than Riley. We were the exact same. Not boat life same but had been living abroad for 6 years. We had a child (same age as Lenny) and really missed and longed for friends & family in South Africa. We went back home for what was supposed to be a lot longer but after a year and a half, we realised that our home was with each other. Our home had also outgrown South Africa, even though our hearts & our roots are and forever will be there! We went back every year on holiday which was amazing and I think we sort of envisioned it being that like when we moved back but realised we had grown so much as a family elsewhere but also that people have lives and those lives are pretty full and busy. I know its something you sort of need to go through and figure out on your own but I'm interested to see how it will be for you guys. If it didn't take 2 days of travel to get home, we would probably opt for spending a good 2 months out of the year back home. Keeping those special relationships in tact, giving our little guy (and us) something to look forward to with family and all, whilst keeping our little family bond close and safe. Hope your pregnancy is going well :) Its been a minute since I tuned in and just got reminded how lovely you humans are :) If you ever come past the Cayman Islands, you have a place to stay x

Lenny is so precious just precious. He is totally both of you as you both are precious. Please consider putting him and yr new one under one name. No little boy or girl wants to be called names. Your both beautiful and little Lenny isnt weird as you called him once he is just like you and you do funny things but are not weird he is copying you in his way. We are are praying for you daily. May God protect, guide and lead you.

I only ever watch you guys once in a while since you don't usually pop up on my suggested. But, I always enjoy watching you since you provide content that seems both surreal - sailing around the world - and are honest about what the downsides are. Most influencers don't do that but I think it makes all the difference. For me, it makes your content more enjoyable. I hope you get back to Australia soon!

We went to Porto Santos in August. The heat was unbearable but we had the best lunch of our lives at the beach cafe Restaurante O Calhetas at Ponta da Calheta at the south western tip of the island. Huge fish casserole. Taken out of the middle of the Atlantic that morning. But you guys are having that every day of your lives. The northern side of the island is crazy. It's like being on the moon.

I drove back to Adelaide from Pt Lincoln just a few days ago and all I've been able to think about since coming home are the crystal clear waters of Pt Lincoln and the sea lions that thrive in Memory Cove and Hopkins Island

I found this about the Moke: Hope it helps in the future.... :) Reverse is to the right and back. Most likely you need to select nuetral, come straight right and then lift the stick, it is spring loaded, and then you should feel/move it backtowards the seat. In the gearbox you have there is a small plate to prevent you from finding reverse by accident, you simply lift the stick over the plate and it is there.

Love everything about this video ! The clarity and the beauty of the video with the perfect background music. The laughter and the family fun days. I also enjoy the honesty and how you share with us the struggles that come up. I mean we all have them and sharing reminds us we are all human and not perfect. Things will work out and you will enjoy the good with the bad. Take care !

Amazing that you feel the need to apologize for giving us a full glimpse of reality. What generous people you both are! Don't ever apologize for living your lives and experiencing them the way you need to. I am a college professor of oceanography and biology, zooming lectures and labs and living vicariously through your videos since our college had to give up our research vessel and beach trips with students with this virus. Being authentic is a very used, but apt phrase. Thank you, for letting us in, making us feel a part of your incredible lives!

I am only living in the UK but am from Austria, and have done so for 25 years now. Away from my home country, family and friends for about 30 years though. Lived in Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, France. Never ever have I missed my family and friends so much than now with Covid not ALLOWING us to travel anywhere and shutting me and my family down here in the UK. This virus has a hidden and ver insidious back-handed way of making you feel bad and sad. I hope it soon stops. It is emotionally painful.

I appreciate the reality check, after following various sailing and travel channels over this last year with covid going on I feel like I've gathered so much valuable information that I would never have seen in the higher times. In the last year in my own life, and being an almost extreme loner, I've learned just how important having good friends and family is and my heart goes out to you, hopefully if it's available to you you can still fly in to have the baby in Australia and I look forward to your boat build, all of your content has value, good and bad, and I appreciate that you keep making these videos.

With toddler, Lenny, who astounds, with his learning the ropes of this thing we call life, whether in good times or bad, Lenny is one very smart little boy. And seeing both of you with him brings tears to my eyes. You both are such loving parents! Being a Mom myself, with 3 adult daughters, I fully understand your wanting to go home, where family and friends are, most likely, eager to hear, firsthand, your adventures at sea. More importantly, they may be so excited to share life long memories as you bring a new baby into the world! I know I’m excited!!! God Bless you three, soon to be four! And it means so much that you’ve been sharing your life with us! Cindy 🐬🐬🥰🥰🥰🥰

You guys are doing remarkably well given your circumstances. I really feel for Elayna with her pregnancy topped off with her seasickness. That must be awful. I've been seasick sailing to Martha's Vineyard and they talk about people looking green. I saw my reflection in a mirror and I swear the skin on my face looked GREEN and I felt as green as I looked. It was such an awful feeling. I was lucky that the distance to Martha's Vineyard was so short I didn't suffer for long. When we came back to Cape Cod we travelled on a big ferry. Both my sweetheart and I felt as sick as dogs and the smell from the diesel engine's exhaust top it off. So you have my sympathies Elayna and trying to perform normal duties under the circumstances is virtually impossible. As for Riley, sailing a boat by yourself, non-stop is brutal. It's beyond exhaustion. The good thing is you made it in one piece. May you be wisely guided in taking your next steps.
