Sailing to Mexico First Then Hawaii

Our plans have changed as of Saturday, July 26th. Tomorrow Sunday, July 27th we are sailing to Mexico to pick-up someone who is about 150 miles off the Guadalupe Island or Isla de Guadalupe. We will need to make a stop in Ensenada, Mexico first to clear customs. Ensenada is "Ensenada is a coastal city in Mexico, the third-largest in Baja California. Lying 125 kilometres south of San Diego on the Baja California Peninsula, it is locally referred to as La Cenicienta del PacĂ­fico, "The Cinderella of the Pacific"." Wiki

We are currently in San Diego, California at the Kona Kai Marina getting ready to set sail tomorrow.

I wasn't going to bring my passport for this trip. I was packing the morning before getting on my flight and thought, if anything happens, I might end up in Asia. Best to bring the passport... just in case." Turns out I will need this document.

After we pick-up a friend in Guadalupe Island area, we will sail them to Bahia Tortugas or Turtle Bay, Baja, Mexico.

From Turtle Bay, Mexico we will sail to Hawaii. Here is a great blog about the Turtle Bay Baja area. I will have to update my photos when we land in Hawaii. Sailing Blog Info for Bahia Tortugas.

That is the new plan as of 4PM today.

Today I'm very tired and I think it might be the San Diego heat.

As the adventure continues, I will try to update. However, once at sea, there will be no updates and no Internet.

Bula, Bula

I'm sorry that I wasn't able to reply. We had no Internet at sea. She is back in San Diego now
