Woke up: Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico
Went to sleep: Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico
Number three on the top ten mistakes made by first time cruisers is overprovisioning. Well, it looks like I, too, have fallen into the trap of fearing I’ll never find another grocery store.
Over the several years we’ve lived on board, I’ve come home from Fred Meyer each week with bags and bags of groceries. Each week Peter has said, “Where are you going to put all that?” And each week I’ve easily stowed it all. Until now!
This morning we decided to combine our exercise with provisioning. Before it got too hot we ran to Costco – 4 miles away. We arrived just as they were opening.
I went up and down each aisle so as not to forget anything. We loaded $225 – cheese, nuts, crackers, vegetables – into a taxi and headed back to the Marina. I’m happy to report, it almost all fit. I was left with about 3 cubic feet of spinach that wouldn’t fit into the refrigerator.
Tonight’s dinner: Steamed Spinach.
Tomorrow we will be heading up into the Sea of Cortez. By all accounts, this is officially the beginning of our cruising life. After all, for all of September and October we had the goal of ‘getting to San Diego’. For the past 2 weeks we’ve had our awesome crew, Krista and Alex, on board and we participated in the Baja Ha Ha.
Now it’s just Peter and me with no plan, nowhere to go, and too much food on board.
