Summer Route in the Sea

Hi All,

We are back in Santa Rosalia doing our last provisioning in a town that has numerous grocery stores where we can get a good supply of food items. Next on the agenda is heading north where we hope the weather, evenings and water are cooler. We have been cooking in our oven boat and just can't seem to keep down enough fluids. Today is Sunday the 19th and we plan to leave 9 ish tomorrow morning for San Francisquito. I will try to attach a pdf file that shows a rough drawing of the northern part of the Sea of Cortez and our anticipated anchorages with arrows showing the intended route. However, all of this is subject to change at the whim of the admiral - no Gary is only the captain.

We are attaching some pictures taken around Sweet Pea Cove on Isla San Marcos Friday. There is a nudibranch (sea slug), octopus and several additional nudibranch that are called Mexican Dancers.

Have a great summer (winter for you aussies) everyone - enjoy your air conditioning, ice cubes, ice cream, chocolate that doesn't melt in your hands, fresh fruits and vegetables as these will be the things that we will long for....

Hard to believe we will have been gone a year come July 28. That was an emotional day for us but an incredible start to an awesome adventure.

Love to all,
