New Blog Functionality- MAP PAGE!!!

As many of our friends know, after we sold Stella Blue to new owners, we all became friends and stayed in touch with them.  Logan and Gillian were such great people and we were excited they chose Stella Blue to take them along on many new adventures.

Since we left Virginia, I have been trying to find a way to add a "Map" page to our blog, among other technical issues I have not been able to resolve.  Well, it just so happens Logan is a technical expert (previous experience at Apple right out of college) and he suffered through all my many questions, helping as my tech support desk for things that are just beyond me.

Today we received an email from him:  "I was able to get the map embedded as a page (a tab at the top of the blog)…….If you click on the boat, it should give you information about the date/time, long/lat, and the message sent."

Just like that…it's done.THANK YOU LOGAN!!  

So, just to clarify - there is now a tab on this blog at the top named "Map".  If you click on that, it will take you to a map that shows our position based on our latest Spot update, including latitude, longitude, a brief message and the time of the update.

Our plan is to send at least one Spot update daily on our passage to the Azores and Ireland so it should be fairly easy to see where we are on a daily basis.
