This is the web site of Jeff and Susie Parker and their Krogen 48-foot North Sea Trawler “Idyll Time.” Come share our journey as we venture from our home port of Chattanooga, TN to places both near and far. Our crew consists of two dogs, Daisy and Sebastian, along with our two Amazon parrots, Nate and Homer.

We consider this the ideal way to travel and see the world with what little time we have, hence the name “Idyll Time.” We hope your time spent visiting this site will be ideal also.
