|Heading home after five months in the Sea of Cortez|
INTREPID II was ready for our Thursday, May 10th haul out on time. We finished up in the San Carlos works yard by Saturday morning, then had her moved to the dry storage yard (marina seca) for the hot, dusty Sonoran summer and fall. The rest of Saturday was spent getting our store room sorted out; then stuffing and organizing all the things that needed to come back in the car with us. We took time to have a bbq potluck with 5 other cruisers who were staying at the Adlai Departementos with us. Our bbq consisted of whatever we couldn't take back with us! A fun time.

We turned west on I-40 towards Williams, which is 60 miles south of the Grand Canyon and whose main street is part the historic "Route 66". Much more funky and fun than Sedona. We found a comfortable motel, strolled down the streets, posed under the Route 66 signs and had an excellent dinner. Now we are planning for the next few days: the Grand Canyon tomorrow (a first time visit for Carol) and onward to south-west Utah; hopefully to explore Zion National Park. Once there we we will plan the next travel legs.
Hope all is well with everyone. We look forward to catching up with you on our return.
