Ashore in Spirit

Connecting with Friends & Family from Distant Waters

It's been great to have the use of WhatsAp, E-mail and Social media to keep up with friends and family while we're away. There's been a wide assortment of communications. With modern technology we're never really that far from home even though we're circling the globe. Here are just a few examples of our connections with family and friends:

  • Our Wyoming Neighbor sent this "Greetings from Home" video: https://youtube.com/shorts/M2yCldMZECk [Notice how Hawk decides to move closer as she decides that there may be a treat in store for her!]
  • Our grandson, Jason, just put the finishing touches on his creation:


Love his creativity and functional design!

  • My cousin, Friedrich Kronenberg, who has a common ancestor with me from my great-grandfather's birthplace in Hannover, shared a German church record with me that dates back to 1713, documenting the Schwermann family in Germany. We are currently working on unraveling our exact familial connection. For those familiar with me, it's no secret that besides traveling, genealogy is my other passion.


  • And our good friends Dan and Kathy are sailing on the same class of ship that we're currently on. They were just docked next to the newest Royal Caribbean ship, Icon of the Seas


Dan says it looks like the Icon of the Seas gave birth to their ship!
Jeff really has his heart set on going on that ship in the not-too-distant-future!

It's great that with can utilize a mix of technology, thanks to Starlink aboard this vessel to remain in touch with family and friends despite the distance! A big thank you to all for keeping us informed about the latest happenings back home as you accompany us on this voyage!
