We love a good party. And traveling. So when we were invited to a birthday celebration in Puerto Vallarta we of course accepted and took the opportunity to combine it with a few days of touristing in Guadalajara.

We were able to take a flight directly out of...

November/December 18

See what I did there? Dazzled you with my español right? You'd be forgiven for assuming that after 18 months of living in Mexico we'd be well on the way to fluency, but in all honestly my español could only be described as execrable. Daz is much bet...

November 18: As the revelry in Cabo came to an end and the 2018 Baja Haha participants began to disperse, it was time for us to plan our own onward journey into the Sea of Cortez. Daz volunteered to run a very chill morning radio net for those of us making the same tre...

Excitement levels were high as we left Bahia Santa Maria behind us on the final leg of our trip. As usual we fell into our rhythm of watches, naps and eating but there was definitely a “watch countdown” happening. After two weeks of broken sleep everyone was really tir...

** Warning. This post includes a picture that shows an exposed female nipple. I refuse to censor it. Because if it was a male nipple, no one would blink an eye, right? I mean, it was the end of civilization as we know it when Janet Jackson nip slipped at the Super Bowl...

Another beautiful day had us arriving with a gaggle of rally boats into Bahia de Tortuga two days after our departure from Ensenada. The trip so far had been very calm and windless but we were still looking forward to anchoring for a few days, getting off the boat and...

There we all were, excited and ready to get underway!  The Port Captain had already received our exit paperwork (we hired an agent to take care of all the paperwork - our Spanish isn't what it should be by now) and we expected he would have it signed and returned to us...

Once we'd made the decision to join the rally, we thought we had a reasonable handle on everything we had to get done before our departure to Cabo San Lucas.  We had 4 weeks to get the car sold, find crew, get the boat ready, provision..plenty of time, right?  Yes we t...

After our consumptive night at Oceanside we made our way south to the utter bliss of the public dock at Shelter Island, which is kind of ironic - it's full of nefarious night time comings and goings by a wily band of raggle-taggle boat gypsies who seem to know every ru...

After our lovely few days at Avalon it was time for us to start making our way south again towards Ensenada. We had an uneventful but pleasant trip to Oceanside where we were stopping for the night to top up water and batteries. Navigating our way through the channel w...
