Virtue, a 53' Hatteras Yacht, is Home at the Moorings in Bay Isles
Holly lives her life to the fullest, taking every opportunity to enjoy maximum time on the water at the Moorings Marina at Bay Isles.
She welcomed me with a chilled bottle of Prosecco, and when the cork was a bit stubborn, she quickly adapted by sabering the bottle with a handy sword she keeps for that singular purpose! The secret to a clean swipe? According to Holly, it is finding the seam along the side of the bottle ... needless to say, it was a highly enjoyable visit and my very first interview accompanied by "the bubbly!"
Holly splits her time between Bay Isles, a condo in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Destin, Florida, where she owns investment properties. When in Bay Isles, Holly calls her 1984, 53' Hatteras "Virtue" her home. She shares it with Captain, her Siamese cat. They live comfortably, tied up on C Dock, rarely leaving port.
Cruising is a lifetime passion for Holly. She jumped aboard big time in 1997 when she took an Around the World Cruise that departed and returned to Athens, Greece. The small ship still celebrates with reunions and a monthly newsletter. She also took a QEII World Cruise where at the last minute her plans for a cabin mate changed, and she agreed to share hers with a man she did not know before, a retired teacher and Methodist Missionary, who she calls an "Angel" and she now considers a life-long friend.
A boating inspired life offers opportunities, challenges and glorious vistas to discover close up. It amplifies your relationship with mother nature and creates memories to cherish forever.
