03 March 2008 | 34nm From Ensenada
Lunch was grilled chicken, roasted potatoes with onions (white and sweet) and freshly baked cornbread. Frankly is was a galley masterpiece and that coming from someone not known for bragging!
The seas today have returned to light to moderate with winds below 10kts and life aboard has returned to what can only be called a gentle motorsail with easy motion. The entire crew took a hot shower and spirits are high with the weather predicted to hold for the remainder of our trip.
We will spend most of Tuesday 4th checking out of Mexico and resting in an Ensenada slip and then depart for a planed sunrise entry into San Diego.
We left La Paz on Saturday 23rd and to date have covered 878nm just short of Ensenada spending a day in Cabo and Turtle Bay, which isn't a bad schedule for a trip to weather with all but 36hrs being a cake walk.
We have only seen four other sailing vessels, but multiple Cruise and large cargo ships. Leaving Cabo at dawn, we could see the photo flashes from a passing Cruise ship as THIRD DAY was back lit with the rising sun and the famous Cabo rock entry with all three sails flying. Lori and I have always said we would rather be the subject of people's photos than taking them of others living their dreams, and as the flash bulbs went off, I couldn't help but smile for our dream is on the verge of becoming a reality.
