Anchored at the Soggy Peso, San Carlos fun
Friday April 25th
Samata Santa Easter week is still going strong as we arrive at the Soggy Peso. The crew did some quick boat cleaning then we joined leg 2 crew mates Dave & Kelley and Jeffrey & Lynnie waiting at the Soggy Peso bar for us to arrive.
We set our anchor just after 3 PM with only 1 other boat in the bay. With in the hour we had a crowd of boats and the beach was full on Mexican vacationers.
One final Leg 1 crew photo at the Soggy (below left). Deb especially appreciates the name Soggy Peso after falling out of the dinghy as we beached in the surf.
Off to the Captains Club for dinner and more drinks. Every crew needs a drunkin sailor night and this is one of those nights.
We even had a little energy left for the dance floor.
Saturday April 26th.
The crew is up early and we have a taxi picking them up at 9 at the Soggy. They will be driving to Hermosillo to catch the bus to Penasco. I was able to navigate the surf this morning to get them and their bags ashore dry. We were all a little worried.
Late morning Jeffrey, Dave & Kelley joined me on Gato Loco to move her to the fuel dock at Marina San Carlos. Winds really picked up 9ish (gusting in the 20s) while we sail the distance with 4 foot rollers coming from the west. We sure hope these sea settle for tomorrow’s crossing to Santa Rosalia.
We finish the day with dinner at Jim and Mary Ann’s. Jim & Mary Ann along with Dave & Kelley will be powering their trawler “Grey Goose” with us on Leg 2. I’m sure it’s going to be a fun week.
Here comes another adventure..
Until the next Update.
Adios to Leg 1 crew. What a fun week.
Here’s to a good crossing tomorrow (Sunday)
Here’s a video for the dolphins near Kino Bay during leg 1
Hi Grandpa and Grandma!! We are glad to see you made it to San Carlos safely! It looks like you all are having a blast so far! Mom had a busy day at the store today, the girls went to tutoring and helped mom out. Kailey also got to go to a birthday party at Skate Country. Keon did well at his Tball game. Roland is out chasing bad guys. 😉 hope the seas are calm for you all and we will stay in touch and look forward to your updates! Xoxoxo
Hi all you sailors, missed you at the BASH yesterday, but I know you were having a great time. Hope to hear more about your sailing adventures. Take care and sooth sailing! K
Thanks for keeping me posted. This trip is still on my “Bucket List”! I think I would love to be a part of it once.
If and when you pass through Iowa again, remember you are welcome at the farm..
Sounds like a great beginning…..and Lowell, I never tire of seeing the dolphins swimming with Gato. Enjoy yourselves everyone….hope the weather is warm and the winds are calm.
Can’t wait to join the fun. Hope you have a decent crossing to SR. Look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday in PE. Cheers, Kurt
Hey Grandma and Grandpa! Loved the pics from Sat night. Great times for sure. Hope you all have a blast and wish I was there! Going with Dave and Kelley has to be a real treat. Love to all.
Hey Lowell, seem to have lost or mis-placed my green wide-brim Tilley hat. If you find it, please put it somewhere safe for me to retrieve upon the boat’s return. Thanks,
Jeffrey and Lynie,
It appears you are having a grand time. Lynnie, I like the dance move. I think I have seen it before.
Jeffrey & Lynn, looks like a lot of fun!! Keep dancing and drink some 42′ for me!! Craig
Looks like a great time! Keep posting photos….we enjoy seeing you all have such a good time!
