Intrepid II is a Cape Dory Intrepid 40 sailboat, hull #2, designed by Chuck Paine and discovered by the Captain in Blue Hill Maine in 2006. The crew are Kelly (Captain) and Carol (Admiral and Blogger). In 2009 INTREPID II embarked on her West Coast journey from Victoria to San Francisco, the Baja Sur Peninsula and into the Sea of Cortez. In 2010/2011, we sailed ifrom Guaymas, south to Bahia Banderas and back. In 2011/2012 she left Guaymas, headed south to La Paz, spent three weeks at anchor on our northward journey and rested on the hard in San Carlos. Her 4th, 5th and 6th seasons were Boat Projects related. Optimistic that there will be more cruising on the horizon!
Meanwhile back home, we've had the spring forward to daylight savings time. Along with losing sleep, it brought rain which seems determined to stay around for some time. While the thought of more daylight to do outdoor work is great, those efforts will wait until it warms up and things dry out.
Hellebores in bloom
However, there are spring flowers to enjoy and the incredible variations of green which make the West Coast so special.
