Loco Sailing – Birthdays in San Carlos.
– April 8, 2005
Gato Loco setting in front
of the Marina café.
Hello from Lowell, Frankie and
Neely in San Carlos. Birthday week plans changed a little with Tom
and Marilyn staying in Phoenix to look after Marilyn’s health. We
picked up a new crew member with 4 legs. Yes, Neely our golden retriever
is on the cruise with us.
to Lowell, Tom and Frankie.
started with some time in Cholla Bay over the past weekend with friends
both Saturday and Sunday nights. Yesterday (Monday) we drove from
Cholla to San Carlos via the border to pickup an auto permit (about
an 8 hour trip with the slow service at the permit office). Should
be 2 hours shorter when we go back this weekend directly to Cholla.
we got our cruising permit and were ready to head out but two
things came up. Neely got a hold of some bad tacos and was running
parking lot all night last night to take care of business. We
need to stabilize this so I’m not running to shore in the dingy
However, the main reason is the wind is blowing today (gusts
in the low 30s). With the light crew we plan to hang at the marina
things lighten up. It’s 5:30 PM now and the boat is swinging
from the wind blasts. Hoping for better conditions tomorrow morning
it is Frankie’s birthday and it would be great have a nice sailing
Until the next update… The
