For those who like chronological order, here’s a spoiler alert, we are now in Esenada Mexico. The holidays and boat departure preparations robbed me of time to post regarding our transit from Newport Beach to San Diego and some great times in San Diego. Future posts will flash back to those halcyon days. Our 60 mile passage to Ensenada was uneventful. We left San Diego at sunset and motor sailed under light winds staying 6-9 miles off shore. We arrived with sunrise at Baja Naval Marina. Clearing customs took most of the morning. Although the process is pretty well organized in one location, we still needed to be sharp to follow the process (a bit difficult after night watches). Aside from a funny reference in one of the receipts to our home port being in the Caiman Islands, things look fine. We enjoyed fish tacos and garlic shrimp at a stand near the fish market and watched Captain Phillips at the local cinema. Today we head down to Bahia Tortuga (two days at sea). We will likely be out of contact for the next several days.
Feliz nuevo ano.
