My first crossing of the Sea of Cortez (1st Neely Blog)
Well another sailing season has begun and I get to be part of the adventure. My parents and I drove Pee Wee (our small van motor home) to San Carlos where Gato Loco was waiting for us. I got excited to see the marina cuz I know that meant we were going on the boat. We loaded Gato Loco up with groceries and stuff but most important was my food and treats. My mom sure takes care of me because she had a lot of treats for me on board. This will be my first crossing so I am a little nervous not sure what’s going to happen. My mom and dad was up early the day of departure at 4:45 to take me off the boat to do what I needed to do, than back on the boat with motors running. Off we go and I couldn’t figure out why my mom wasn’t feeding me breakfast first. Dad, finally after a hour or so, gave me a treat but it was hours and hours before my mom fed me dinner. Boy was I hungry!!!! Not sure why I didn’t get to eat but maybe they did that so I wouldn’t have to do my business during the crossing which took 11 hrs. I was really happy to see the marina cuz the first thing I did was jump on the dock and mom took me to a dirt road. Boy I was happy!!!
Later we went into town to explore and everyone kept saying to me muy bonita!!!! I know my mom is always saying that I am such a pretty girl. I guess they all like nice blondes. Now we are heading to San Marcos. Maybe a little ride in the dingy would be nice. It’s also another favorite thing to do while on Gato Loco!!! Leslie my friend said I was smiling when I got back and she is right. Its fun to hang out with Uncle Bill while sitting by his side and watching as we motor along. Everyone needs a job on board and mine is to look for sea life. That means going back and forth across the bow looking for dolfins, whales, or just anything. I love my job and being on Gato Loco!!!
Woof,woof and lots of licks
Until the next doggone update
The GatoLoco Crew
Oh Neely what an awesome blog you sent! Hugs and kisses to you.
I think Neely should become a new updated column or book ” Neely and Me” ( Marley and me)
Hope your having fun and nice weather!!
Wish we could do that – us goldens would have a blast together. We miss the ocean already as we just got home yesterday from RP. Cowboy and Outlaw(Heather & Doug too!)
Thanks for the update Neely, excellent job, great pictures. Hope you see a lot of sealife during your cruise.
You write better than anyone else. So graphic! Can’t wait to hear more from you. Send pictures of the whales and dolphins that you spot.
I want to be Neely, I feel a childrens book coming up….Frankie, I had the best compliment from Murril this morning. As I was sweeping the kitchen floor(withch I do all the time it seems) he said, your getting like Frankie??? the girls were cracking up!! Love you and miss you , have fun!!! Love AL
It looks like you are having so much fun! Don’t eat any fish heads – I ate one the last time I was in Mexico and it made me sick. Tell your parents and Victor, Leslie, and Bill “hi” from my parents and I.
Hi Neely and crew!
Good job Neely. Keep the posts coming so once again I can live vicariously through your adventures. Have fun – be safe!
Via con Dios!
I just noticed I didn’t see your beads around your neck! I’ve got some new ones for you when you get back.
