Adios San Carlos
24 October 2011 | San Carlos, Sonora Mexico
We've been bustin our butts the last 3-4 days getting ready to leave San Carlos...which we will be doing in the next couple of hours. We will leave Marina San Carlos around 1300 today and sail over to Algodones for the night. Somewhere around 0200 tomorrow morning we'll leave Mainland Mexico (Algodones) and sail across the Sea of Cortez to Santa Rosalia, a distance of about 70 NM. Our friend Carlos is sailing with us to Algodones and he'll ride his bike back to MSC after I dinghy him in to shore. Carlos is one of the MANY new friends we now have in San Carlos, we've met and become friends with many fellow cruisers, we have become friends with the family that owns the local tienda, friends with the people in the local dive shop and the security guards at the marina. We are also pretty tight with ALL of the restaurant, taco stand and bar owners and their many employees. One of the sad parts of cruising is the friends that you leave behind when you cast off and move on to another piece of paradise. We'll most likely bump into (not literally I hope) our cruiser friends but there are many people that have been such a big part of our lives here that we may never see again.
So it is with great excitement and also a little tear in my eye that the time has come to sail away into the sunset...leaving San Carlos in our wake...adios San Carlos we'll miss you and all of the wonderful people that we've grown so fond of.
