S/V INTREPID II - Cape Dory Intrepid 40

My photo
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!

Springtime highlights

One highlight of being at home this Spring rather than enjoying warmer, sunnier weather further south, is enjoying the springtime blooms in our garden.  That does mean ignoring all the pending yard work; that will wait for slightly warmer weather. The Captain will need to exchange his shorts and sandals for jeans and boots to tackle the grass cutting, raking, power washing and all those home based projects on his arrival.

Pictures taken this morning in some glorious sunshine, but only 8C degrees.
