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...

Sea of Cortez

This place is beautiful!
Now I remember why I loved cruising it before...

Salt mine ghost towns to explore.

Funny things on beaches to amuse us.

Abandoned salt flats.

Abandoned tractors without engines.White sand beaches.
Anchorages to yourself.
Beautiful cliffs and rock formations.
78 to 80 degree water.


Clear water.
We can often see our anchor on the bottom.

Old buildings.

Beaches to ourselves.
Swine flu.
Friends on other boats.
Four day party at Loreto Fest.
More sunsets.
More white sand beaches.Pink sandstone cliffs and rock formations.
More beautiful clear clean water.
Skinny dipping.
Lobster moults.
Yellow cliffs.
More pics to come!
Because I don't have the patience to sit here in the cruiser's lounge listening to this silly lady babytalking to some baby via skype...
When I could be getting ready for the "make your own paper seminar!

So why are you going back to Calif?

Love the picture of Jim on the Dozer... He looks like he'd be saying, "I think we can save this."

Nice sunset!
