From these first experiences, Dudley began to yearn for more distant ports. This summer and fall, they plan to cruise the coast of Maine, explore the shores of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and then push northward to see the coastal wilderness of Upper Newfoundland and Labrador. Eventually, The Good Life will head south, explore more of the coast of Maine, make stops in the Chesapeake Bay and at Bald Head Island, and make the jump to the Bahamas when hurricane season settles down. Dudley told me he'd really like to visit the Polar ice pack, but can't round up enough votes among his family and crew to get that bit of legislation passed. If all goes according to plan, there's a transatlantic crossing in the works for next summer, with a long and leisurely exploration of the Med, followed by a voyage north to explore England, Scotland, Norway, the Faroes and Iceland.
