San Diego – preparing for Mexico and beyond!

On November 6 we moved back to the dock at Seaforth Marina. We were heading to Denver / Boulder for an early Thanksgiving with Sister Claris, niece Mellie & Mike. Trevor and Macie drove over from Salt Lake. We had a great weekend also celebrating Danny Coronelli’s 60th birthday!

For the next 6 weeks we prepared for our departure from the US, heading to Mexico and beyond. As we are not sure when we will be back, we spent time on boat projects, stocking the boat and trying to make sure we are all set for the journey South. (We had some fun too.. celebrating my birthday, enjoying the holidays & we even had a Bon Voyage Party!)

We met Thomas and Isa on s/v Jade Akka on our way out of Mission Bay and met up with them again in the A9 anchorage. Meeting new people is a fun part of this journey!

One of the hardest things we had to do was say goodbye to our Ellie girl who is retiring in sunny San Diego. At 13 she got an offer from cousins, Jocko and Sue to come stay with them in their super dog friendly household. When we drove away she hung on the front steps, happy to be staying on land. We miss her terribly, but know it is the best thing for all.

Our new dingy, chaps & all! Thank you Craigslist.
