Will you still need me, will you still feed me....

Early on Saturday morning, we reached the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, and turned east, past Cabo San Lucas. By midday, we were anchored at Puerto Los Cabos, near San Jose del Cabo.  Sunday was the Captain's birthday; even if he has reached the ripe old age of 64,  he is still needed and worth feeding.  His birthday brunch, at a farm based restaurant called Flora's Field Kitchen, included a wonderful cocktail made from Hibiscus grown on the farm.

We are very pleased to be finished with the long journey down the coast. We are spending our mornings hiking on the beach and in the estuary near  San Jose del Cabo, and afternoons dealing with chores and provisions. But all of this is done in brilliant sun, gentle breezes, and a sense of Mexican homecoming.

Happy Birthday from Bonnie and Joe who you met briefly at the Morro Bay Yatch Club in October. You have inspired to take a non sailing vacation in January to La Paz! Fair winds.

Happy Birthday, Mac. We wish we were there to help you celebrate. All is well here with us, the pups, and the old guy, Mr. Dennis.

Hi Mac and Catherine!

Aloha from Hawaii! It took us 5+ hours to get to Honolulu at an average of 550 mph for 3000 miles...a bit faster than your sail south, ha, ha.

We are here for 3 weeks and head back to winter in Portland mid -December.

Happy birthday, Mac...you are still a youngster!
