I’m Jules Fredrick, an incurable wanderer and ardent animal lover.
Since my teenage years, I’ve loved traveling and experiencing different cultures, customs and characters. I’ve never been content to stay put for too long, always researching information for my next big adventure. Fortunately, I married someone who shared my love of animals, and he (referred to as Diddy), quickly caught the traveling bug.
After traveling across the US and Canada in our little Pop-Up camper with our 3 rescued pups, we sold our house, bought a sailboat, and decided to travel by sea.
During the transition, we said farewell to Kismet, our oldest pup, who crossed over the rainbow bridge. He will always be with us in spirit.
Roxanne (Roxie) is a “hybrid herder” that we adopted in 2001. She probably is mixes of Border Collie, Heeler and Corgi. She is a certified Therapy Dog and loves retrieving sticks off the back of the boat.
Chance is a Bichon Frise we rescued in 2010. Actually, we only meant to foster him, but we are now “foster-failures”. He is our 2nd mate on the sailboat and loves/hates squirrels.
In 2016, we said goodbye to almost all of our worldly possessions, including house, cars, and all the stuff that goes along with being landlubbers, and moved to Mexico on our sailboat. We are now residents of Mexico and spend our time sailing the Pacific coast and taking land excursions during hurricane season.
