After seemingly endless boat projects that have consumed the last seveal months, and provisioning that has involved numerous trips to Costco, Mega and the local tiendas (where does Linda find places to put all that stuff?) we are just about ready to say "Adios" to Mexico and "jump" to the South Pacific. We leave Mexico with much left to be explored, but secure in the knowledge that we will be back someday to pick up where we left off. We are anxious to start this next chapter in our "Grand Adventure" and look forward to seeing new sights, meeting new people, and the challenge of crossing an ocean in a small boat! In preparing to make this crossing, we have strengthened many old friendships and made many new friends among our fellow "Puddle Jumpers" and look forward to our seeing them again at the Latitude 38 rally in Tahiti in June, and elsewhere down the line. Stay tuned for further updates as we cruise to and through the South Pacific!
