Reunions in Santa Rosalia


The plan was to get an early start so that we could snorkel at Sea Pea Cove on Isla San Marcos. So off we went as the sky was getting light. The wind again allowing for some nice motor-sailing, at least until we were out of the mouth of Bahia Conception. As we rounded the south side of San Marcos…

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?…

Checking on him 45 minutes later I earned that there was a strong current which pushed him back to shore, better than out to sea I suppose… He put in another fourty-five…

One hell of a fishing day in Los Gatos


Before sunrise we were moving, after just raising anchor I was at the helm when I thought I saw some motion, sure enough we were on a collision course with a boat that had zero lights one. What the fuck. Danger avoided we proceeded to have a ridiculously calm passage to Los Gatos where we ended up being joined by…
