The first is Curt Bowman. His blog is Thin Water Annie. His boat is a wood built Drabscombe Coaster from Maine. Actually, he came by for a visit just last week to peak at my boat's progress. He's a very good chap. Curt also paints and is an accomplished artist. Here is a "self portrait" of him with his boat.

The second blogger is Steve Early. He and his boat "Spartina" spend more time exploring the shores of the Chesapeake and Pamlico Sound than anyone I know. Spartina is a home-built John Welsford design called a Pathfinder. His blog is The Log of Spartina. Steve has a career in photography and his entries are always entertaining and wonderfully pictured. I've yet to meet Steve, but I know people who regularly spy Spartina sailing across the waterfront in Norfolk. I'll catch him one of these days … soon.

I truly appreciate the stories these fellows share. Their enjoyment of sailing is a journey and I aspire to have such simple, real, and pure adventures they regularly log. Thank you guys.
