The party continues!


Work before play – I had to replace the anchor light fixture. So first thing in the morning up Jack and Shalise hoisted me. One hell of an arm work out holding myself up with one arm while soldering the connectors with my other. Whew! But we now have a working anchor light again! Who doesn’t love a scavenger hunt?…

Shipwreck party day 1.5


Dumb luck shinned on us. Back in Puerto Escondido I had an email from Carl and Roxy (Sky Pond) who heard through the rumor mill that there would be a “Shipwreck” party in San Juanico. As the days past there was a post on the Sea of Cortez sailors group and on the morning net. And it just so happened…

Shipwreck pre-party!


Our plan to head for San Juanico for a rumored “shipwreck” party was slightly delayed for final cell signal messages and calls. About 9:00 we had the anchor up and were headed north. I made a cardinal sin of unzipping the main sail stack pack and getting the halyard ready to go. Shame, shame, shame. Once on course we had…

Winter 2019 is a wrap!


With our overnight passage behind us it was time to tie up and enjoy dock life as we put Strikhedonia to bed for a few weeks.

A bonus was that Sky Pond was already there and we would have another chance to hang out. I had been talking up the Sarandeado (BBQ fish) which was our…

The first night we hit rib night at Senor Froy’s followed up by music at Time out and Lucy’s. Then it was time to…

Fiesta de Veleros and some massive burgers


It was an interesting night, the winds mellowed out by 10:00pm and I fell fast asleep. That changed around 2:30 in the morning when the winds started ripping up to 30 knots. Wowza. My anchor alarm allowed me to relax but the noise kept me up until 4:00am when things subsided. The joys of living on a boat… I was…

Wild Bill comes to Barra


By friend Bill some how managed to talk his wife into letting him play hookie from school (he is a high school physics teacher) and come down for a visit. It was going to be an action packed trip as I wanted to give him the full Barra area experience. What better way to start than to watch the sunset…
