La Cruz to Cabo San Lucas
For those of you who wait on the edge of your seats for my next blog – stand down.
We are leaving this morning for Cabo San Lucas.
Looking at this map of Mexico, we will be sailing from Puerto Vallarta to Los Cabos (the Capes). The distance is about 282 miles and will take the better part of three days.
It’s impossible while cruising to ever make a definite plan. I tell people when planning their course, “Forget it! You can never know what course you will be on until you leave the dock, head into the wind, and see what direction it takes you.” The wind conditions indicate a good opportunity to sail to Cabo today.
Our yacht insurance requires we be north of latitude 27 by June 1st. Ideally, we will be in Turtle Bay by then.
It’s sad to leave La Cruz. I’ve been here just long enough to make a few friends, get to know the place, and fall into a routine. I like to think I’ll be back next year but you know what they say, “You can never go back.” It’ll never be the same as it was this time.
So with that, I’ll share some photos of a wonderful time and place, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, Nayarit, Mexico.
Look for us in Cabo about Wednesday! Adios!
