Days Well Lived – Isla Coronados BCS

Hello from beautiful Isla Coronados just 6 miles north of Loreto. The past couple of days have been very busy. We left Honeymoon Cove on Isla Danzante and headed over to Puerto Escondido for the day to do some much needed chores. Oh that ugly word (chores) that strikes fear in any young persons’ mind. […]

Puerto Los Gatos & Bahia Agua Verde

Well, we didn’t end up staying at Puerto Los Gatos for very long. Although it is a spectacularly beautiful bay with unusual red rock formations, the rest of our stay was a bit of a bust. There are some extensive reef systems around the bay and we were excited to do some snorkeling. However, we […]

Minimalism on a Boat

I was reading a blog about living a more minimalist life and realized that a lot of the writer’s ideas about minimalism overlapped with our goals in taking this journey on our sailboat.  That got me to thinking about putting down in writing what some the goals were and what I have learned so far.  Traveling and […]

Video: Diving Cabo Pulmo

So… I finally found fast enough WiFi to upload this video!  It only took 2.5 hours to upload!  This is my first underwater video, so hopefully they will get better.  After we took this I got some dive filters for my GoPro. That should improve the color for future videos.  We’ve been told that as […]
