Safely in Cabo

We arrived safely in Cabo San Lucas yesterday at noon, after 50 hours (285 nautical miles)at sea.  It was a completely unremarkable trip.

Unremarkable, except the sunrise.

I was delighted to be on the water again after two months in La Cruz.  Penelope was happy, too, frolicking through the waves.  She went really fast as she just had the barnacles scraped off her bottom side before we left.

I saw turtles and dolphins, but no whales.  For a full day I saw nothing but a single milk jug.  Peter got hit in the side of the head by a flying fish while on his night watch.

We did our usual four hours on and four hours off.  This works pretty well for us.  Two nights underway and we were happy to see the hustle and bustle of Cabo.

Cabo is such a rip off, though.  Don’t ever come here on vacation if you can help it.  They wanted $80 US dollars for the privilege (service charge) of getting diesel at the fuel dock.  Naturally, I had a tantrum until they told me they would give me $50 off one night in the marina.

Peter is carefully analyzing the weather to determine the best time to leave for San Diego.  This afternoon we will move out to the anchorage.  Our friends, Steve and Janny and Gracie are out there.  No more marina for me!
