Only 50nm to go to San Diego so we should be at the customs dock around 6pm tonight!!!
So the Baja Bash didn't really live up to it's name. I think it is only a bash for those on a tight schedule and can't wait for the right weather or the unlucky. Since we both have time to wait for weather and are lucky it didn't seem bad at all. Clearly, prevailing head winds and head current are no fun, but the Baja Bash was totally over hyped in our opinion.
Looking forward to seeing friends and family and having a USA phone number again. Ours for the short term at least is 954-305-2703 (our old trusty Florida cell phone).
We plan to be in the San Diego / Newport area for about 1 week then start making our way North toward San Francisco for another 1 week layover. Then onward toward the San Juan Islands in Washington State to be there in time for 4th of July.
