05 October 2016 | Marina Puerto Escondido
The drive back to Puerto Escondido was a lot of fun -- we did finally see spectacular Crater Lake and then a visit to one of our favorite coastal towns: Monterey.
After that we picked up our new solar panels near LA and had a great visit with good friends Joe & Sharon from Lucky Lady too.
Then it was time to meet Carly & Ryan in Disneyland where they were celebrating their 5th wedding anniversary.
The next day we headed south, crossing into Mexico at Tecate then driving to Hotel Mision Santa Maria near San Quintin on the Pacific. A nice walk on the beach is the perfect way to end a long day of driving!
An overnight stop at Santa Rosalia and then home to Cetus the next morning. We did treat ourselves to a night at nearby Hotel Tripui while we put Cetus back into live aboard mode. A swim in the pool was a nice way to relax at the end of the day.
Today the work continued as we put the sails and wind generator back on and then began unpacking all the miscellaneous food and supplies we'd packed into Old Blue.
Still lots of work to do, but we're back home and it feels great!
