Que Tenga Buen Día!

Que Tenga Buen Día -
I know that’s how I should end this not start it but it’s the phrase I picked to learn today so it gets to be front and center. I decided I better start learning more Spanish than just hola and buenos días (hello and good...

Navigating Through This Unusual Time

I am going to state the obvious. What an unusual time we are living in. Everyone’s life has been turned sideways and in some cases upside-down. It’s challenging to write a blog about adventures at sea and living abroad on a boat when the real experience of...

What To Do Next?

Our trip out of Cabo San Lucas to Puerto Los Cabos was short and easy. We started without good sailing wind so we motored to our destination in about 3.5 hours.The ride was a bit choppy due to a swell coming from South and wind waves from the East but the sun...

San Diego Stopover

We've been in San Diego for 15 days now. That's longer than we thought we would be here. Flexibility and adaptability seem to be the key to boating life. We had a list of chores to accomplish for our anticipated seven days stopover. Maybe we would have...
