February 2019:

After our lovely trip to see friends and do some inland exploring, we were well and truly ready to get off the dock and out into the Sea of Cortez. We'd been delayed because of heavy winds and we'd also had some canvas work done that took longer than expe...

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...

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...

The last month has flown by!  We’ve both been busy with our various work commitments, travelling, family visits and visiting and also got to spend a long weekend together in Ensenada!

The Howells are about to head south!

Yes, I know, we've already told everyone that. September 2018.
