Adios Mexico!

The water tanks are full, we've provisioned the boat (multiple times), sea berths are made, cookie dough is in the ice box, the decks are clear, and we're clean. We're ready!

After many failed attempts and delays...we're finally leaving lovely La Cruz, and heading for the Galapagos Islands. A dream come true for me.

Although our stay here has been tumultuous...we've really come to enjoy La Cruz. We've been able to meet incredible new friends here, enjoyed a vist from my parents, get work done on the boat and have gotten into the groove of the cruising life. Morning yoga and afternoon swims at the beach are really easy to get used to!!

We'll be updating the blog more frequently, and our spot link on the right will show our progress. We expect the journey from here to take 2-3 weeks.

The Galapagos Islands are the most incredible living museum of evolutionary changes, with a huge variety of exotic species (birds, land and sea animals, plants) and landscapes not seen anywhere else.

Wish we were going to the Galapagos too... you'll have great adventures, I'm sure! I'm curious to see how long SPOT works. We gave up our subscription because they allegedly don't have full coverage for the crossing to FP. I was imagining my family basically freaking out when our signals stopped in the middle of the ocean!
