No matter how much time we log sailing, it's never enough. That was the story the first season when the arrival of my first child waylaid cruising plans. It was the story during the second season when mandatory professional development dictated a summer of studies. And, as I recall, it was the story the following season as well. It wasn't until 2006 that we finally made the trip we'd longed to make for four long years. And yet even that left us desperate for more.

Judging by the experience thus far, it may seem somewhat optimistic to even have a page called 'Travels'. So what. Here it is, our travels - meager though they may be - and adventures on Lake Michigan aboard Ariel.
