Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

What We Did On Our Summer Vacation Bash...

We looked at the arch at Cabo San Pucas Lucas as we motorsailed past.

Stan ate weird food combinations...Chili peanuts and peanut butter on crappy Bimbo bread yum, yum!

Jim and the eaters Tim and Stan posed like elves...Remember, this is a long trip and boredom does come easily!

We read books, did sudoku and I "wore pajamas in the daytime".We figured out why we weren't going as fast as we wanted to.Jim had 5 billion pounds a lot of fishing gear on board.

We motorsailed alongside of "Capricorn Cat".The guys posed like dorks on the pier at Turtle Bay.We had an early dinner and a few beers at Cafe Morocco in Turtle Bay with some of our "clan".Tim, Jim, Me, Kristen & Ned of "Bristol Blue" and Alicia and Tom of "Allegria".
Stan-the-man was taking the picture...




We watched dolphins leap.





We took naps and lost Jim under a bunch of pillows.We dodged whales.The guys topped off fuel in the cold wind at dusk.We ate fruit.We watched pretty birds.We motorsailed a long, long way.And are SO very happy it went so well!
The boat and crew were both awesome.
The "bash" is all listening to weather, picking your windows and timing it right!
