Summer Schedule -- Kinda Sorta
June 15 - We pulled into Santa Rosalia and put the boat on the dock. This was hard. This requires an entire post to discuss complete with angst-filled and poignant pictures. I haven't the pictures yet, but I'm sure the emotive climate will appear any moment now. The boat is now in Santa Rosalia until mid-October. All adventures between now and then are going to be non-boat-based.
June 23 - July 4 - Except this one. DrC and Jaime left yesterday for La Paz. DrC will bring our new old van (old new van?) to Santa Rosalia on Monday. He's leaving Jaime down in La Paz on s/v Beach Access. Our buddy boat and Captain Uncle Glenn are bashing north over the subsequent two weeks with Jaime as a hand before the mast. Everyone please send good weather karma vibes to them. I'll try to keep a relay going on their status and location via my Twitter feed.
June 29 - DrC flies up to Seattle to work.
July 22 - Mera, Aeron and I climb in the van and start driving.
August 2 - Family all comes together in a pile to attend a wedding in New Mexico.
August and September - My mother will join s and then the crew of Don Quixote plans to road trip in the United States. I'll post -that- itinerary when we get closer to figuring out what we're doing. It's a little fuzzy at the moment. We want to see the Grand Canyon (Jaime), the Navajo National Monument (Aeron), Chico State University (Dean), the Seattle Public Library (Mera), and Merlino's Orange Freeze (Toast). That's all we know.
~October 1 - Jaime, Mera, Aeron and I are back on the boat in Santa Rosalia.
October 9 - DrC joins us in Santa Rosalia.
Mid-October -- Go to Guaymas, haul the boat, get pretty, and then start being cruisers again.
We had a Moment -- an epiphany if you will -- on a beam reach in 15 knots of stunningly beautiful weather between Isla Lorenzo and Playa Santa Teresa the gist of which was:
We're not done yet.
