Why Migrating Loons as our blog name?

Migrating Loons

Picking a blog name was almost as difficult as choosing a name for our new to us boat. Almost, but not quite as hard.  Since we'd already decided on our boat name, we wanted a blog name to reflect it.  Most of our content for the next couple years will mostly be of our travels by boat. 

Migrating - It is very easy to see where that comes from.  In Canada, (I am sure I am not about to reveal anything new to you,) our winters are long and cold! Many Canadians, dream of our beautiful long summer days, and wish we could skip right over winter. (Note: That doesn't apply to everyone, we have awesome weather for winter sports: skating, snowshoeing, skying, sledding, etc.) The idea of migrating somewhere warm in the winter and returning home during the nicer seasons is alluring! We are going to be snowbirds going by a different name.  

Loons - Loons are a Canadian symbol and icon. And even though we're not crazy about the cold and digging out of snow, we are proud Canadians and we hope we will be good ambassadors during our travels.

Migrating Loons - A quick google search reassured us the name was available and that no other travel blog with the same name existed. We were able to purchase the domain and start up our blog.

Our short term plan is to do the Great Loop, beyond that - we don't know yet, but we do know that Migrating Loons can grow with us as we evolve on this new path we are on. Whether we travel by boat, truck and trailer, motorhome, etc. there are so many places to visit and discover in North America, but we'll always look forward to coming home.  We can't wait to start!
