Thumbs up Major Updates to Cruising Web Site

I have just returned from another season of cruising. This season covered most of the islands of the Bahamas that we had missed on previous trips and then we returned to the Chesapeake via the ICW. As we cruise, I generate extensive logs as well as photographic albums and videos. These logs, photos and video now cover virtually all of the Caribbean and the east coast of the US from Maine to Florida. Many of the newer logs include a "For the Cruiser" section which provides information which I think is useful to cruisers.

Since I returned I've been updating the web site with this year's material. Most of the logs now include pictures of the area as well as links to a Google Maps page which allows people to utilize an interactive map to see where the log was written from. You can access this material at

I've also created a Google Earth presentation of the trips. Each anchorage that we've been at has a placemark which includes a snippet of the log and links to the full log and any photos or video. There's a master file which contains all of our trips as well as files which break down the travel by area and by year. The 2007 file even includes a "movie" which flies you along our route. More information on this can be found at

I hope that you find this information interesting and valuable. If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to write.

Well done Geoff. Looking forward to following your adventures vicariously via GoogleEarth! I'll do that tomorrow at work!
