Remote Island Cerralvo- fantastic

We left Los Muertos early in the morning and sailed towards the Island across from La Ventana. This was our second try, the day before we had to turn around as we started to have too much head wind, which would have made the not perfect protected anchorage a bit uncomfortable. But this time, it was perfect. We arrived and found a good spot and our Kruiser immediately dug out the spear gun, which he hadn’t used yet. He jumped in the water, while the rest of us cleaned up the boat and got things ready for a later island visit.

Kruiser came back with a very pretty grouper. He prepared it right away and made some yummy seared fish, which we than enjoyed with freshly baked bread. Yupp, I finally got around to use our OMNIA oven and made whole wheat bread. It was YUMMY!

With new strength we set up the dinghy and the family went to shore, while our man Kruiser jumped off the boat to catch some more fish for dinner. We explored the island, Noah was happy to cruise around a bit, we went for a swim and found out, that we weren’t the first visitors.

The Sunset, Pelicans hunting and the bonfire by the big cactus, where we cooked the other two fish Kruiser caught for us, will be in our memories as an unforgettable one! What a great day.

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Our families and friends are far away while we are on our adventure sailing trip. Either in Germany, Canada or elsewhere. So, so good to be able to talk to the family from a restaurant of a cute resort, where we took our dinghy this morning. Mats just opened his presents and is happily playing away.

Thanks for reading and following our journey and we hope, you are all having a Merry Christmas/Frohe Weihnachten! 🙂

To Sail or Not To Be

San Jose del Cabo

The Captain was a little nervous, as we had tried now for so many times and put hours and hours into getting the motor back in shape. There was really not much wrong with it, but once it is loosing it’s prime, and there only needs to be a small leak somewhere which lets air in, it is just a big hassle and everyone hopes, it was the right spot and is now absolutely airtight.

But the motor held up and we motor sailed to San Jose del Cabo and got a nice spot at the Marina, next to our friends from SV Lea Scotia. The first Marina since San Diego! The boat got a well deserved fresh water wash and we enjoyed the warm showers!

Mats has a buddy on SV Lea Scotia, the boat to the left of us and it’s always great when the kids have someone to play with. We have met the family with a almost 3yr old and a 7 months baby in San Diego and we kept contact along the way, until we found another again in Cabo and travelled together for a bit on our Journeys. A great family! 🙂

Our Kruiser came back from Chihuahua the next day and we prepared the boat for the next leg, towards Los Frailes

Latitude 38

I know the magazine’s of Latitude 38 quite well, since our Captain picks up a new issue as soon as it’s published. I would then spot them in our live- aboard in Sausalito, on the couch table , in the car, or even bedroom as night time lecture. 🙂

So I am way excited , that “To Sail or Not To Be” was mentioned in there December issue in the Changes Section.
