C'est la Vie is a 1966 Charlie Morgan 34.

Her home port is Everglades City, FL. Our typical cruising area is Southwest Florida, the Florida Keys, the Southeastern Atlantic Seaboard, and the Bahamas. We are C'est la Vie's third owners and purchased her in 2005. We continue to maintain and update this classic vessel.

Probably the best pizza I have ever made. This was a great meal. We had to postpone the salad, to much champagne !


Goodness from my galley!

I'm making pizzas from scratch tonight!


Updates and revisions

Those of you that receive email updates or subscribe to our blog maybe wondering about all the past dated posted that appeared today.  Well I took advantage of the coffee shop's open WiFi to fill in some missing posts, add some additional images, correct some errors, and generally clean up from all the posts made from our "smart" phones. 

All the images and the majority of the posts during our spring travels have come directly from our phones.  I realize this has changed  the nature of our posts - less text and more images. 

Thanks for following along on our northward migration.  The frequency and nature of our post will be changing over the next week as we transition back in life down east along the NC coast. 


"Gosh, my life is so hard."

Anne and I are relaxing on anchor in Beaufort's Taylors Creek anchorage.  We were able to get our preferred spot at the west end of the creek near a beach on Carrot Island and directly across from the Maritime Museum's wooden boat shop.

The weather here is sublime for lounging, reading, scrabble, and any manner of lazy day activities aboard. 
Don't expect this to last.  I need to focus my energies on reopening NCOBS OBX program as the staff training starts on May 12.
