Turtle Bay - Hooray!

We made it safely last night about 7pm after approximately 50 hours of motor/sailing. We got to fly our new spinnaker - which was beautiful - the first day and had a very nice sail.

After that, we pretty much motored. Got to do some fishing along the way. Doug caught 2 El Dorado, a yellow fin tuna, and a bonita. He has proven to be a great provider, plus having a ball. Thanks to Tim and Karen for providing the fishing gear - it works!

It has been wonderful to have Crit along with us. She is a expert sailor, plus a lot of fun. It sure made the overnighters easier - we actually got to get some sleep along the way.

We are goofing off today, potluck party tomorrow, and off to Bahia Santa Maria on Friday. Our next post will be from Cabo around November 7. Hope for fair winds!

hey, Critter!

You look great! Tell Doug I'm jealous of the fishing! You'd better be taking a lot of pictures for us to see. Been thinking about you LOTS - but obviously, no need to say "have fun". It seems to be a given! Can't wait to hear more!

PS - Never seen you butt look so good! Lots of love, Sharon

Hey Guys,

You all look great. It sounds like you have handled everything that has arisen with calmness and ease.

Have a shot of tequila in our name when you get to Cabo! Continued safe passage, smooth seas, lots of sea life and fun!

The rumor spreading through the Ha Ha fleet is that Doug is buying fishing from the local pangeros, putting them on his line and then taking photos.
