We’ve lost our dinghy… this time for good.
Exploring Uncharted Lagoons, Mangroves and Sand Dunes
As you my remember, we’ve had a number of incidents with our dinghy, Makara. First, she went for a little joy ride for a couple of days in Santa Barbara during Fiesta weekend, but was kindly returned to the harbor patrol. Then, only a few days later, one of her oars snapped and we ad […]
We found a hidden gem on Mexico’s Baja Coast! When we set out on our journey down Mexico’s Baja coast, we expected the scenery to include lots of desert, rock, cactus and mountains. That has certainly been the case for most of the coast, however we recently discovered some absolutely incredible mangroves in a place […]

Sailboat Delivery from Marina Del Rey to Berkeley – Part 5: Santa Barbara to Monterey
November 2, 2015: After arriving in Monterey Bay in the early hours of the morning for a quick fuel stop, we decided to delay our departure up to San Francisco Bay so that we could cross the bar at slack tide. Based on our average speed and distance we had to travel, we planned to leave […]
October 30, 2015: Come Monday afternoon, it was finally time to leave Santa Barbara! Yay! Not that Santa Barbara was a bad place, but we were eager to get on our way and back on the ocean. We checked out of the marina at noon and headed around the pier over to the anchorage. The […]
August 2, 2015: In case you missed it in my last post, I recently quit my job and am trying to figure out how to travel full-time and explore the world. So far, I am considering two options… Option A: Buy a campervan, wander North and South America Option B: Buy a sailboat, sail the […]
