Escaping heat and hurricanes?????

24 August 2011 | Portland, Maine
The main reason that I left fled the Sea of Cortez in July was to escape the extremely hot summers that the sea is notorious for. Upon arriving at my Uncle's house in Maryland I was treated to 2 weeks of record breaking heat, most days it was right around 100 degrees. Another big reason for leaving Si Bon was due to the possible (although remote) threat of a hurricane. There have so far been no hurricanes or tropical storms in the sea...however we are now on a hurricane watch here in New England as Irene works her way up the Eastern Seaboard. Yesterday morning as we drove to Portland I kept thinking A HURRICANE IN NEW ENGLAND???? are they freaking kidding me or what. When we stopped for lunch at the very beautiful seaside town of Kennebunkport, I went on line to check a few things and saw that there had just been an earthquake....yes an earthquake...in Washington D.C.. The last time an earthquake of this magnitude hit the East coast was in 1944.
So anyway....here we are in the very interesting town of Portland Maine, we are staying with Shaybo's friend Delaine and her boyfriend Chris and we are getting ready to go exploring. We will be keeping a close eye on Irene and moderating aftershocks from the earthquake....and we'll be happy not to be baking in the heat and hurricane prone Sea of Cortez, or being shaken awake every morning in the earthquake prone Southern California.
Something weird is going on!

This is the plan.....In late 2009 after going on a wonderful charter to Turkey and Greece and seeing and living the cruiser lifestyle I decided to move into the next phase of my life. [...]
