“We are going where the wind blows, when the spirit moves us, and the price is right.” These were the driving forces that would be fulfilled beyond Jane and John’s wildest expectations. Using St. Augustine, Florida, as a home base, winter sailing sojourns south always included the Indian River where lifelong friendships were cemented, bountiful seafood harvested, and anchorages were a slice of paradise. Biscayne Bay was a cruising sail boater’s dream come true with bountiful seafood, neat anchorages and magical Miami. Dinner Key, Coconut Grove, and Miami were all pulsating with an endless array or interesting things to do. Marvelous Cuban restaurants, back to the earth sun seekers, and salty sailors all added to the flavor. Sailing the Florida Keys proved to be the best sailing, fishing, and exploring to be found anywhere. They saw the Keys that nearly nobody got see, under its waters and away from highways. West of Key West only boaters ventured... a Utopian paradise for a privileged few.

Who hasn't daydreamed about chucking it all and sailing away on a boat to warmer climes, "far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife." John and Jane did just that. This sailing adventure began as an idea and unfolded into a rich and fulfilling dream come true. A lifelong obsession of escape materialized in 1972 with the building and launching of Dursmirg. John and Jane went over the horizon. Departing Duluth-Superior on the western terminus of the St. Lawrence, they crossed the Great Lakes, the Erie Canal and Hudson River to New York City. It was an enchanting journey, and in more than one place they felt tempted to stay. But there was always the thought of Florida driving them on. Arriving in a fairyland, destiny planted them in St. Augustine. The book is recommended for all free spirited dreamers that have the drive and desire to live life to the fullest.
