Off to Mexico!
13 October 2011 | Chula Vista, CA
Later this morning we'll start a new adventure! Driving down Baja.
We'll divide the 700+ mile drive into 3 days -- taking it leisurely so we aren't pressed for time trying to find a place to stay before nightfall -- because the one thing you don't want to do is drive at night on Baja's Hwy 1. When one hears that you shouldn't drive at night down there you imagine all kinds of things like banditos or something, but the truth of the matter is it's because of the cows! At night you can't see the cows that can wander into the road and to hit one would really put a damper on your drive. So you drive during daylight hours and watch out for the cows!
So we're excited to be this close to getting home to Cetus -- though there will be lots of work those first few days to get her back in the water and all homey again.
