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...

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...

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...

WarningSomewhat bad language in this post.  It's warranted.  Believe me.

Complete and utter shock - best description by far of the look on his face when a bunch of people came up behind him and screamed "Happy Birthday!!" 

I love it when a plan comes together, and with the help of our friends, this one worked out way better than I thought it...

It's been a year since we sold the house and moved aboard.  That year went really quickly! People often ask us about the transition from house to boat:- how we cope with sharing close quarters without killing each other, and life in general bereft of luxury things like...

5 weeks, start to finish - that's how long it took us to sell/donate/trash just about everything we've accumulated over the last 17 years. 

Once we decided to sell, we had our lovely agent and her equally lovely inspector come to our house to walk through to tell us wha...

*** Edit:  The pictures you see here were taken when our house was torn apart as we were culling and selling. The back yard is typical of the pre-spring cleanup after a windy winter.  We don't normally live like hoarders with a crack problem. That's my story and I'm st...
