Riverbend Music Festival: a First Experience
   Since a boater friend introduced us to the CMA Festival in Nashville, we've been going to it almost every June. Yes, we love it that much, and we're not even country music fans! But this year, thanks to Glenda, we stayed in Chattanooga and went to the 9-...

A day in the life of a liveaboard, part 3
There is never a dull moment living on the river. One moment you're feeding the ducks, next you're witnessing a fire. A fifth wheel was engulfed in flames Around 9 am, we did our customary walk up the hill with our neighbor friend Debbie. A quarter of the w...

Now You See It, Now You Don't
Fog. It's simultaneously pretty, gloomy, mysterious and even eerie. And for the last two days, it's been moving in and out all day here at Lake Nickajack (Hales Bar Marina)! This morning, we awoke to the sun filtering through a thin layer of fog. By eleven,...

Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring!
It's March. Does that mean spring is here? Only a few days ago, winter storm Remus pummeled us with 8 inches of snow, creating a magical winter wonderland in the deep South. All schools in the Chattanooga area were closed on Thursday, and I was so glad Ch...

What do Apple and the Super Bowl have in common?
Commercials! Remember the 1984 Apple Macintosh computer commercial? Directed by Ridley Scott (of Blade Runner, Alien, Gladiator fame), the Apple Macintosh ad was the commercial that changed Super Bowl ads forever. Thirty-one years later, Apple is not only ...

Keukenhof Tulip Garden in Amsterdam, the Netherlands
I've often heard about the tulip craze in Holland (now the Netherlands), but never really knew the nitty gritty details. After visiting the magnificent Keukenhof Tulip Garden in Amsterdam earlier this month, I decided to find out more. I was surprised to le...

Picking pecans in the fall
Pecan halves Except for the crazy weather (when it's hot, it's hotter than Florida, when it's cold, it's colder than Boston!) and the deadly tornadoes (the marina was hit twice the last 2 springs), I really like Chattanooga. Surrounded by mountains and the ...

Just yesterday I was looking for some Chinese songs on animals on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVnkwfJEKq4
And I got carried away and went to learn Chinese myself here:

Avis à toutes les Tiger Mothers. S’il y a bien une chose que je détestais quand j’étais gamine, c’était le cours de chinois du dimanche. Les tons, quelle malédiction. Et aussi d’entendre ma mère me...

Introduction

After boating in the Boston area for several years, Eileen Thai and her husband were hooked on the lifestyle and dreamt about cruising full time. Their dream came true in 2001. They bought a 37' powerboat (Mai Thai), quit their jobs, sold their home and went cruising into the sunset.

Their travels have taken them up and down the U.S. East Coast, the Bahamas, the Florida Panhandle and the inland waterway (Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway and Tennessee River). Eileen writes travel articles; their adventures have been published in boating magazines Latitudes and Attitudes and Living Aboard (now evolved into Cruising Outpost), and other online publishers like the Helium Marketplace and several Yahoo! sites.

These days, Mai Thai is tied up at Guild, Tennessee. When not writing, Eileen teaches ESL at Chattanooga State Community College. Her other passions include cooking, gardening, and taking pictures and videos.
