The past couple of weeks have been extremely hectic...packing the house up, moving all into either our storage locker, good will, dump, or, when lucky, eBay. Cindi had her last day of work on 11/30, and we were on the plane for San Diego in the morning of 12/2, after a midnight moving wrap-up the night before.
Friend Emily joined us in SD on 12/3 for the sail to Cabo San Lucas, and we spent the past couple of days provisioning, stowing gear and food, and trying to remember where everything was. But it's all good, and felt great to finally get underway.
Just before crossing the imaginary border into Mexico, a US customs boat pulled along side to grill us a bit. Apparently the answers jived with his computer screen, as he finally let us go w/ a wave. No worries.
Looking for breeze, winds finally came up. Now at 18kn, we're boogey-ing south at around 8 knots...sweet! Especially nice to shut down the engine. Fishing line is out, hoping for a bite for sushi by dinner!!! Next stop will be Turtle Bay, about 300 miles to the south.
