Follow the Wind
Teresa Carey has a simple plan: sail south through the winter
I think I romanticized living on a boat, too
perhaps too much.
Sailors are romantics and romantics are fools, so I must be a fool.

and the Pursuit of Happiness. Dec. 7, 2008

The cold winds return to New England, changing the leaves to gold and brown as Teresa Carey pulls anchor. Its October, and the Kalkaska native is setting sail for warmer waters aboard Daphne, a 27-foot sailboat.
Last year, the 31-year-old school teacher decided she wanted to sail the East Coast. So, she quit her job, sold her processions and bought the NorSea sailing sloop.
Once my boat was ready, it was just as easy as pulling up the anchor and going, she says.
Carey has no itinerary and no crew just a boat, a cat and a free spirit for exploration.
