It is 9:30am the morning of December 22nd, and we're sitting in Marina Cruiseport in Ensenada. As soon as we refill our jerry cans of diesel and pack up our boat we'll be on our way south! It is still pouring rain here in the "desert" of Ensenada, but forecasted to hopefully stop soon. Our next passage is going to be 48 hours down to Turtle Bay. The weather forecast is for some squalls this afternoon, giving way to strong following breeze tonight, evolving into winds on the beam over the next two days. If all aligns in our favour we should be in Turtle Bay on Christmas Eve, hopefully staying there for our Christmas dinner of turkey and mashed potatoes. Excitement for Christmas has been building aboard, with the boys and Nicole opening their first present last night: a new waterproof bluetooth speaker! That should make the night watches a little bit faster!
We're not sure if we'll have internet before we get into Cabo, so this may be the last post for a while. We'll try to remember to take some pictures this trip and hopefully post them here ASAP.
