All Good Things Must Come To An End

All good things must come to an end……it was a very difficult decision to make but after 17 years of cruising we have decided it is now time to pursue new adventures.  

Our last day aboard Idyll Time was bittersweet as we transited Haro Strait crossing from British Columbia into the United States for the last time.  The new owners, Jim and Judi, were waiting for our arrival at Roche Harbor in the San Juan Islands. They are the perfect couple to take over the reins of Idyll Time.  We know they will continue to care for and love her as much as we do.

Our time aboard Idyll Time has been truly amazing.  She has taken good care of us as we explored over 60,000 miles of waterways along the East Coast, Bahamas, and the Great Loop, along with three trips up the Inside Passage to Alaska.  The memories and friendships that we have made along the way will be with us forever.  It has been an amazing journey.

For all of you who have followed along on our travels, thank you for your support over the years.  The Cowell’s plan on continuing with the Idyll Time blog.  You can view their website at  I am sure they will have many more amazing adventures aboard Idyll Time.

Thanks for following along!!!

  1. As part of our three-week Christmas cruise we arrived in Roche Harbor on De 23, so we just missed you!

    It has been a pleasure sharing activities with you, such as hiking Raven’s Roost, attending the Little Norway Festival, or rubbing shoulders at the Krogen rendezvous. We will miss you very much.

    Best regards,

    Cousins Neal & Lynn and the cats

  2. Jeff and Susie,
    It was great seeing you both in Anacortes! Such a small world. Our 23,000 miles seem so insignificant compared to your 60,000 plus! Thanks for being one of our inspirations for the cruising lifestyle and best wishes to you in your new endeavors!
