And so it ends...
It is with great sorrow that I am writing that Jan left me today. To say that I am hurt and angry would be a huge understatement. But I guess it is what it is. I am not sure what I am going to do now. I am pretty much stranded on a boat alone in Mexico. Reg...

Lingcod, the *other white meat*
I have already said this, but it is worth saying again - we have figured out how to catch bottom fish in Ensenada. Last Sunday we went back to our hotspot that we discovered for bottom fish. To say we had a good day would be a gross understatement. I had a ...

Feliz Navidad! Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas to all of our family and friends. We miss you all very much. Christmas this year is obviously very different for Jan and I. We really miss our traditions and our family. But honestly, I am very much enjoying this year. I have always had a hu...

Surf's Up!
I have to say that I am pretty anal about weather. Weather takes on a whole new meaning when you are cruising. First, you can't just turn the TV on at 5:10PM and have someone tell you what you should wear to work tomorrow. Television is a luxury when you ca...

Ensenada
We have been in Ensenada Mexico for a few weeks now. We are really quite comfortable here. The weather couldn't be better (low to mid 70's during the day and low 60's at night). It did finally rain a couple of days ago for about 30 minutes. This is the firs...

San Diego
We sadly left Newport Beach and headed for San Diego. This was to be the jump off point for the Baja Ha-ha (silly name, I know). This is a rally that leaves San Diego and races to Cabo San Lucas. We had signed up for the "ha-ah" and were planning on partici...

Newport Beach
What are the odds of finding two places in a row that we totally love? I don't know, but it happened. Maybe we should bye a lottery ticket? Newport Beach is a fantastic town! The only downside is the crowds. The harbor is huge - very long with a couple of i...

Catalina Island
What can I say about Catalina Island? We LOVE Catalina Island! Catalina Island is a wildlife reserve, and boy do they have wildlife. We didn't see any animals on the island, but the sea mammals were everywhere. Lots of dolphin, whales, sea lions, etc... Cat...
