Images of Nomadness

As I look fondly back on my 7 years with the Amazon 44 named Nomadness, many images come to mind… dreamlike moments aboard a beautiful boat in a stunning setting. She is now entering a new phase with her new owner, and has plans to head down the Pacific Coast later this year.

I want to share a few of my favorite photos of this epoch… most of these are from my 2008 cruise with Sky, before getting immersed in geekery and spending way too much time at the dock.

Computing Across Humboldt County
by Steven K. Roberts Eureka, California — December 15, 1986 We have just spent three weeks in Humboldt County with old friends—old friends whom we first met three weeks ago. Such is the time distortion of the traveling life. We’re living as a family of four, and the time before our arrival seems va...
Accident and Aftermath
by Steven K. Roberts Healdsburg, California — January 23, 1987 11,450 miles It began dramatically, as befits the coast.
