SV INTREPID II and her crew are congratulating ourselves on another cruising milestone. We've made it all the way down the North American west coast from Sidney, BC, Canada to Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico - a journey which took from September 9th to November 29th, 2009. We haven't counted up the nautical miles yet but a significant part of our first cruising journey is complete.
Thanks so much to our families who encouraged, worried, sympathized and sent their good wishes and prayers with us all along the way. We are here safely in many ways because of your care and concern. To our friends - thank you too for your encouragement and advice - always appreciated.
Many of you know we didn't plan on docking in Cabo San Lucas. However we needed fuel for the next passage, the fuel line on the outboard is cracked and we do need our outboard working for dinghy transportation through surf conditions in many anchorages and we really need to provision. Can you believe $142 US for one night at Marina Cabo San Lucas?? Consequently we hope to keep this visit very short and move on up the east coast of Baja California Sur to Las Frailes and onward towards La Paz.
