and I returned to Sol Surfin in October and spent 2 weeks getting
her sails put back up and the boat put back together after the
hurricane season’s take down. This was a lot of work but
we got good at putting sails up and down.
Prior to going home for the summer,
we had a glorious time in the Sea of Cortez, exploring all the
islands and meeting new friends. The sea was very beautiful
and tranquil. We explored new territory and swam a lot checking
out the reefs. I would highly recommend a cruise to the islands
if anyone is thinking about where to visit in Mexico. The terrain
was like the Grand Canyon on the water. There are lots of caves
and crevices with great colors and textures.
Now we have sailed (really motored
because there was no wind) across the sea of Cortez and have
been in Mazatlan for a few days. We leave tonight for Isla Isabelle
Island which is between Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta. We will
hop scotch our way down the coast and get to Puerto Vallarta
in a couple of weeks. The goal is to spend some time coasting
down the gold coast which is south of Puerto Vallarta and hit
some surf spots along the way. We are hoping to be in Costa
Rica by spring time. There are several other boat friends that
are on the same path as us, so we will have a few new friends
to travel with.
I will send along another email
in the next month.
Hope all is well with you.
