First big leg complete
01 April 2011 | La Paz
Yesterday afternoon we pulled into our slip in La Paz where we will spend the next month, we will be coming and going out to the islands for few days here and there, then coming back to the marina for a few days. Around the end of April I will continue up the Sea of Cortez anchor hopping as I go.
When I think back on the past month it's been pretty amazing, all of the places we've stopped and all of the people we've met, it's hard to imagine that it's all happened in a one month period. Our leg down Baja was pretty hard core, even the adventurous Peter commented that it was MUCH more intense than he thought it would be. Since we rounded Cabo we've become cruisers, no real plans, no real agenda...anchoring in bays and coves along the way, watching the weather and deciding when we would move along to the next piece of paradise. I would say again to people that are thinking about cruising "IT'S NOT THAT DIFFICULT", and to anyone with a dream, whatever it may be, set your goals, make your plans and do it, it's nice to dream, but it's nicer to "live the dream", remember that I'm just a regular dude, I'm a decent sailor (not some crusty old salt) and I've learned to do some basic repairs in an emergency (not a mechanic), but that's it, I set goals, I planned and I executed the plan...and here I am.
Soooo.....still no horror stories to tell....and still no fish.
