the Sailing Vessel Gone Native
Gone Native Arrives in San Diegoby Capts. Dave and Desiree
04/30/2009, Silver Gate Marina, San Diego
After checking in through customs that morning, Dave did a magnificent job "shoe horning" the Gone Native on to the dock. They were not use to having catamarans in their marina, but the wind being calm allowed us to dock the boat readily. Silver Gate has reciprocity with the Ventura Yacht Club, and the people here have been kind and those walking the docks have been curious and interested in our adventure. We are enjoying our few days here, and it only makes us more excited for our anticipated arrival to our hometown and the Ventura Yacht Club.
Adios, MexicoBy Capts. Dave and Desiree
04/29/2009, Ensenada, Mexico
We arrived to Mexico in the wee hours of March 29th, and thirty days later we pulled in to our final destination in Mexico, Ensenada. As we were approaching the harbor, we encountered the largest flag in Mexico. It was waving proudly in the sea breeze. We enjoyed the few days on shore and at anchorage in Mexico, realizing we had not allowed enough time to see this land, but one thing we have learned on this trip, is one can not see it all.
Change of Seasonby Capts. Dave and Desiree

As we finally approach the Mexican/United States border, there is no question we have noted the change in seasons. We have had endless summer(s), but now there is a notable change in the air, and especially the water temperature.
