Follow Terri and Mark as we cruise around the eastern portion of North America known as the Great Loop in our trawler Terrmar IV.
We are writing this blog for one reason and one reason only. To provide a vehicle to make it easier to remain in touch with our family and friends back home.
Our plan is simple. Depart our home port of Goderich Ontario in the Summer of 2011. Cruise Georgian Bay and the North Channel of Lake Huron while visiting some of the ports and anchorages we have missed over the years. As well as revisiting some of our favourite haunts hopefully with some of our very good friends with whom we have cruised with many times before. All the while adding up the miles and gaining experience with our new trawler. Our first and only self imposed deadline is to be in the Chicago area around Labour Day. South of Chicago, weather and circumstances will guide us!
We begin this blog on a very cold day in Dec. of 2010. The loop which commences next summer seems a long way off. We have to get through our Canadian winter first. We are days away from Christmas and New Years. Then on to the Toronto boat show where once again we will break the bank. After that we will begin preparations in earnest. Time will fly! The learning curve on this blog will be steep. So please grant me your patience.
