Ensenada Summer



Now that summer is over and we're near the end of our stay in Ensenada it's a good time to look back at what we've been up to.

The trip up the outside in June was not fun. It was rough at times and Linda suffered from sea sickness. When we arrived in Ensenada Linda was ready to call it quits for this boating thing and we were talking about taking the boat north and doing the inside passage or maybe even selling her. We then took a 3 week road trip to Tucson and up to Boise and when we returned we felt refreshed and started to take a new look at things. I was not excited about going north. Returning to the States was not exciting for me. What would we do? Get an apartment and go to the mall and Starbucks everyday? Being on the water, in the boat, just the two of us, that's exciting and what I really wanted to do. Linda, with some distance from the rough trip up here, admitted she really wanted to continue boating and go on to Panama. She knew her limits, she would have times of discomfort and she would get sea sick again but she still wanted to keep going. So over a coffee and chai tea at Starbucks we decided to keep boating and prepare to head south to Panama and maybe even Ecuador. We started to make plans to prepare the boat and continue the dream. Lists were made, projects discussed and prioritized, and money spent. Lots of money!

We don't know what we're going to do once we get to Panama, we just know we're going to have some fun and see some monkeys!
