Christmas with my ex and planning my escape.
28 December 2010 | My Ex wife's house
Everyone rolls their eyes when you tell them that you're going to your ex-wife and her husbands house(pic) for Christmas...But I have a REALLY small family and she has a REALLY big family, so it only makes sense that instead of dragging the kids all over town we just suck it up and do Christmas all together...besides for the most part we get along, that's one reason our kids turned out so well. Never the less other people still seem to have a problem with it. You should have seen the year Gilbert and I co-coached the kids soccer team, it took the other parents most of the year to get use to the idea.
My next trip to Ensenada is approaching fast and I am once again glued to the weather forecasts (guesses), right at this moment it looks good for leaving on the 31st at around 0200 and being at the Marina Coral at around 1600 just in time for a Mexican New Years. There are a couple of concerns besides the weather; 1. Mexican pangas (small fishing boats) loaded with illegal migrant workers, unlit and traveling at a high rate of speed. 2. Aquaculture pens, also unlit and not marked on charts. Nether one of these things would be good to come in contact with, my plan is to reach the US Mexico border at first light so as to be able to spot either one of the above...the only thing that could throw a stick in the spokes is if we get heavy fog, in that case we may change plans and head in a different direction. Which ever way we go I am now busy in preparation stage and excited to get going....wherever that may be.
