Inspired by Facebook’s new Timeline, here is a Zero To Cruising photo snippet of our Christmas holidays from 2004 onward. I had a lot of fun reminiscing as I went through these pics.

2004: Punta Cana, DR

2005: Deep River, ON and Fernie, BC

2006: Las Vegas, NV

2007: Deep River, ON

2008: Sailing School, St. Petersburg, FL

2009: ZTC is on the hard so we’re house sitting for friends, Kingston, ON

2010: Now we’re cruising! Norman’s Cay, Exumas


  1. Like me, you are blessed to have a smokin’ hot, fun, and energetic lady to share your live with. Makes it a whole lot more fun and interesting.

    Merry Christmas.

  2. A fun collection of shots! Merry Christmas!


  3. Great thanks!

    How did you find a house with a dance pole in it?

    Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year.


  4. Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2012 to you both
    Some of us can only dream but you give us a wonderful insight into how you have made your dreams a reality. Please keep posting the pics (`specially Rebecca !!) they make an old Englishman very happy.

    Keep safe John

  5. I love how you always went somewhere fun for Christmas… and now you’re in PARADISE!! *sigh*

    Have a fabulous Christmas. I know you don’t have all the trimmings but you have white sand and if you close one eye and squint I bet it would look like snow… for a second or two.

    I would be in Palm Springs right now, out of this RAIN but I am waiting for the best Christmas present I could ever wish for… my new grandaughter. She was due yesterday and no signs of her arriving yet. I am betting tomorrow or boxing day. I can’t wait!

  6. Mike and Rebecca,

    Hey guys Alex and I have been following your blog for some time as we plan to depart Halifax NS next summer on our way south to end up in Grenada June 2013. We’ve really enjoyed your daily posts and look forward to them each day. In the Christmas spirit we’ve made a small donation so that you may have a little more cheer (read rum) on us over the holidays!

    Take care, and hoping that you both have a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year! Hopefully, we will have the opportunity to cross paths in the future.

    Cheers, David and Alexandra

  7. That was fun! Merry Christmas and look foreward to 2012 being added to your timeline!

  8. Great memories, lots of familial resemlances there. Merry Christmas and all the best for 2012.

  9. Wow, cool things to do on Christmas each year! It is nice to see the progression into your full time Cruising:) Thanks for Sharing

  10. Love all the pictures .. great idea! That snowboarding looks sooo fun! Happy New Year!

  11. Great timeline. My brother lived in Fernie for 25+ years….awesome snow (I hate the Meathook at the top though!) and a well kept secret vs. the more developed resorts. I would love to reverse our current life and start coming north for a ski vacation. A Caribbean tan looks so good in a lift line or powder.
