A cooking class you say?


Early on, after joining Fly Aweigh, there was talk of a cooking class in Loreto. LeAnn and Alison stumbled on a family who offers classes while looking for a bathroom in Loreto. With the rally and my flight home it was looking unlikely. But after the rally it looked like we could make it work and on the hike up…

Sadly the last sail of the rally for this guy


I was woken to the sound of rain. Knowing that wasn’t possible I headed for the swimstep. The millions of sardines we swam through yesterday were going crazy. A constant boil with occasional excitement where large fish jump out of the water chasing the little guys who jump out trying to avoid being eaten. To top it off hundreds of…

We have a winner!


Light wind day so there was no rush to pull up the anchor. The rally plan was a 11:30am line up for a sail race. That gave Allison and me time to paddled into shore to bushwack through the cactus and brush, scraping and poking our way. Eventually we made it to the top of a hill with a cool…

Foodie Adventure in Mulege

You know how some of those things you see on the internet look like amazing experiences and you jump on board before thinking it through? Yeah, this was one of those. On paper an Snow/Ice village sounds really fun. In reality it is fucking cold. I know, that is pretty obvious. We arrived at the SnowVillage around 2:00pm and were…

Travail du jour


We have been big supporters of Travail for a number of years and it is hands down our favorite restaurant. We celebrated NYE 2020 there with our daughter and then…covid hit. This was our first time back since then and it was great to enjoy their wonderful food and see all the chefs back doing what they love to do.

Waiting on a weather window


Once in a slip it was time to find a weather window. This ended up being three days on the dock, but it allowed us some fun with friends. Cabrales’s yard has a Friday night bonfire/BBQ, which was a great chance to meet some other cruisers. Sandra hollered out, “Hi Strikhedonia” as I arrived and after chatting with Salish Dragon…
