Unplugged from land....

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

It’s been a while since our last blog posting because we’ve been VERY busy provisioning and performing last minute boat projects. But Sidewinder finally pulled off the Oceanside Dock Tuesday morning after a full week of grocery shopping and storing, packing and repacking the V-berth, installing the jack lines, testing out our new “worm” (the inflatable dinghy), more investing in West Marine, and using every tool stored on this boat! We were even surprised with a visit from Casey who flew in from Portland to see us off! And while we didn’t make it too far due to rain and low wind projections, we did drop anchor in Mission Bay, San Diego. At least we’ve left land and ditched the shore line power cord! Sidewinder is truly our new home, and our adventure starts here…..

We will leave within the next 48 hours heading south. That’s about as far as our “plans” go right now…. We are hoping to hit Puerta Vallarta around Christmas time. But as they say, we are really going where the wind blows us!

We will try and keep you updated here, but be patient…..our internet access may be limited. And we will be busy being present in our new journey. Sunshine & wind. Reading. Fishing. Cooking. Being. Breathing. Loving you all from afar…..
