  1. Your photos are incredible! I just stumbled across your blog today and have loved going through it. You guys are livin’ the dream. What kind of camera do you use/what kind of editing techniques? I love the quality of each and every one.

    1. Hey thank you very much!! I shoot a canon 40D, and use a tokina 11-16 wide angle lens 99% of the time. For editing I use Lightroom 4, and mess around with VSCO presets. Recently made the switch from photoshop, and love it. Hope that helps a little…

  2. Enjoy your blog immensely. I look forward to following in your wake in the not too distant future. MV Let It Be homeport Kenlake Marina Tennessee River mile marker 42.1 LDB.

  3. Hey Katie – it’s Carol Trumbull in GH – let me know if you are going toward St. Simons Island, GA – one of my sons lives there now – not on the ocean but on the island – hugs

  4. Hi,

    Nice pics. Love the posts.

    Just curious. Do you take any special precautions concerning keeping your camera dry? Silica Gel? Ammo box (or other waterproof box)?

    If you use silica gel, do you have a way to dry it when you are cruising?



    1. Alan… I wish I had a better answer for you than No. I am just careful – kind of. My camera had been through hell and back and is still properly functioning. I do not have a waterproof housing or anything like that, just try my best to keep er clear and dry !!

      1. That’s what I wanted to know. You’re ‘kinda careful’ and don’t have many, if any problems.

  5. Hi Katie and Jessie–stumbled upon your blog and am wondering if you have an email address I could reach you at.. Looking into doing something similar and wanted to pick your brains. So inspired by your journey.

  6. Awesome pictures of you two awesome girls and an incredible journey!
    Had a big smile reading your stories. Keep on going !!

    Greetz, Steve, Holland.

  7. Love your photography especially the low depth of field cameras. Came across your blog while trying to find my cousin David’s blog. Looking to buy a boat to live on in Morro Bay, CA. Then take it out for some adventures during the wedding off season.

  8. You two are truly inspirational… thank you for sharing your photos and tales of the journey for those of us that plan to make this trek in the future. peas and hominy in all yo gritz…

  9. it was just a great adventure, but now there is a problem:
    I also want to do the same !!!!!

  10. I have readen just now on an italian sailing net-magazine about your strange and wonderful circumnavigation, just clicked on your site and trough your amazing photos I found a complete, another way of sailing, it remind me “into the wild” movie by the point of view of a boat ! A quando una circumnavigazione della penisola Italiana? When you’ll get a circumnavigation of the Italian peninsula? with love 🙂

  11. thank you too for the answer katie and jessie:)
    You can rent a boat or buy a 7mt. used boat here in nort italy or close in south france, get some modifications and after you finish trip put on sale
    Have a nice day !

  12. Awesome photos. I just heard Jessie on the Sail Loot podcast and it sounded like a great adventure. Best of luck on your Atlantic crossing.

  13. This is awesome you guys!!!!! I bought a 27 ft catalina sailboat recently and have done a few big treks and many of your photos remind me of what I’ve done (bucket showers and lots and lots of books!) Keep up the amazing adventures and inspiring more women to get into sailing and adventure!!!!

  14. Living on the west coast as a power boater, wonderful pictures really tell your story! Makes me want to charter another sailboat adventure! Cat and dog are priceless! Keep on truckin!
