Our family of 5 moved from New Mexico onto the Dawn Treader (a Lagoon 450 sailing catamaran) in June 2016. Along with our German Shepherd, Nala, we explored amazing places in Florida and the Bahamas on this beautiful boat. She was sold in May 2018 to a lovely couple out of North Carolina. After their inaugural sail from Ft. Lauderdale to New Bern, North Carolina she was hit by Hurricane Florence. In June 2019, our family returned to the boat to crew for the new owners and get her sailing again. As a family we loved being back aboard the Dawn Treader (now renamed s/v Colibri, but always "Dawn Treader" to us...) and were grateful we could help. Sadly, it was not to last as the new owners announced plans to sell her at the Annapolis Boat Show in October 2019. Still, we are eternally grateful for each bonus day we got on that beloved vessel. Now we shift to the next chapter, full-time family travel and worldschooling. This feed now updates the crew's position as we travel the world. Having started in New Mexico we like to call ourselves, "New Mexi-Castaways." Follow along here, or consider joining the New Mexi-Castaways Crew on our website. That is where we share all the photos and videos from our adventures. May you all have fair winds and following seas in your own adventures, wherever they may take you!
