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...

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 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...

After the drama of the previous week and the horrific morning with the pump-out, we were looking forward to a few quiet days for a change - you know, the type of days we were expecting when we went cruising - morning coffee on deck, sunny days, gently rocking at anchor...

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

We've had lots of fun with guests onboard lately. Phil and Kristi from Texas spent a few days with us, culminating of course in yet another wonderful trip out to the beautiful Valle de Guadelupe for wine and food! We love taking our friends to our favourite haunts in E...

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...

No friends, not every day is sleeping in, cocktails on the Lido deck and sunshine.

I think only sailors understand that sinking feeling in the pit of the stomach one feels when the head (or toilet for our non-boaty friends) isn't working properly.  In an effort to avert...

Despite his request for a quiet, inexpensive birthday this year,  I couldn't let Daz's big 50th pass without something a little special even though living on our boat in Mexico is certainly that every day! We had a little dock party with our cruising friends on the act...

The Howells are about to head south!

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

Well.  We changed our minds. So we're going now. Well, in two weeks. Half of us anyway.

It dawned on us a few weeks ago that we didn't really have to wait at all.  That we...
