About Coming Full Circle: A Voyage on America's Great Loop
Cruising America's Great Loop is one of the premier boating adventures in North America. We spent four summers on our Nordhavn 35 Gulf Cart completing the trip, logging over 7,000 miles along the way. We survived two floods, weathered a tropical storm and outran a waterspout. Our route took us south from our homeport of Naples around Florida's southern tip, then up the east coast, through Lake Champlain into Canada, across the Great Lakes, through Chicago and back to the Gulf of Mexico by way of the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers and the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway. We took many side trips along the way.
Coming Full Circle: A Voyage on America's Great Loop tells the story of our adventures along America's waterways. It is a celebration of live-aboard boating and cruising. It is a commentary on the places we visited. It describes the joys and challenges of the journey with a sense of humor. It tells of hauling laundry through marinas, picking blueberries in Canada, hiking for groceries, watching gorgeous sunsets in isolated anchorages, arriving at a new port in time for a local festival. It tells about the community of boaters on the Loop, of sharing long water crossings with other boats and celebrating with them afterwards. It is a story of discovery, new places, new friends, new foods and new ideas.
If you have boated the Great Loop, this book will bring back memories. If you are thinking about boating the Great Loop, this book will get your adrenalin pumping. If you haven't considered the trip before, after reading this book you may add boating the Great Loop to your bucket list.
As a non-boater, I did not expect to be much interested, but to my surprise I found
myself truly enjoying the adventures of the Armstrongs cruising the Loop. A
definite must-read for both boaters and non-boaters!
