the race to the start line

Leaving La Paz in our wake
While it is a very small step, we have taken the first step of our journey. We have left La Paz for a nearby anchorage - we are taking a day to regroup, reassess and breathe. Since we decided we were crossing the Pacific - nearly 3 months ago, it's been a race to the finish line. Actually, it would be more appropriate to say it has been a race to the start line.

Friends sending us off from
shore.So long Tom, Jeanne and Kevin!
While there are similarities to the hectic preparations for our first passage away from Canada, this time is different. We have a year and a half of full-time cruising under our belts. Some of the then unknowns are no longer unknowns to us. Yet we are not foolish enough to think that we know exactly what to expect from our upcoming voyage. As we mosey our way around the peninsula with a final stop in San Jose del Cabo to receive our zarpes (exit papers), we finally have some time to absorb what we are about to do. This is a big deal for us. And we want to savour it.



On our way!
