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. Season 7 - we are hoping to cruise again at long last.

Spring bouquet - subtle and delicate - Happy Easter
A year ago INTREPID II was anchored in Bahia San Evaristo with over a dozen vessels and experiencing alternating strong northerlies, then calm enough waters to go ashore or visit. Celebrating Easter in that setting, with the wind and the waves and the sky and the full moon and the church bells ringing Saturday night for the Easter vigil was unique and memorable.

This Easter the kitties and I are at home; the Captain is still enroute   Our Easter will be celebrated once we are all reunited.  The weather at home has been sunny, 13 - 14 C with enough warmth to sit out on the patio and enjoy the spring flowers.  Kelly's land passages have been long days driving; he did enjoy a family visit near Los Angeles before continuing homeward.

Our Easter wishes go out to family and friends, on land or on the water; hope it will be a joyful one whatever the setting.
