The Captain and Admiral are finally ready this morning to take one last look around the rather crowded cabin and the uncluttered deck of our very special home for the past 5 months and say a reluctant 'adios' to SV INTREPID II.
It has been an intense and exhausting few weeks to ensure all the preparations to leave our home away from home over the hot Sonoran summer are completed. That includes that we have everything with us we need to return home. Our Subaru wagon is jammed full and several items had to be left on board.
We said fond farewells to those cruising friends staying on to finish their own projects. By mid-morning we drove out of Guaymas. After a few stops for gas and stretch breaks we reached the Mexican - United States border at Sonoyta, MX/Lukeville, AZ about 5:15 pm. The distance is 560 kms or 350 miles.

PS: We actually did take time to celebrate our anniversary earlier this month - priorities!
