@SailingSeaCasa and Salt’s weekend adventures were pretty awesome. We were so glad to catch up with them one more time before they make the puddle jump to the South Pacific. Always fun to meet new friends, too @marievee_ 💕 Follow their adventures to the land of 🥥 🌴 ⛵️💨 @particularharbor you were missed this weekend! Safe travels, guys! We’ll see you soon.

Off to Ixtapa today. It’s a 180 nautical mile sail, so we will be arriving sometime tomorrow. Off to plan some passage meals to make sure the Captain eats. Not a bad sunrise to send us off. Love these mornings.

Today’s a big day, guys. Four years ago today we officially bought Salt and promptly sailed over to South Beach Harbor, San Francisco. She was the first big boat we’ve ever owned, and we love her more every day. We are out on the water right now, reminiscing about how attached we’ve become to Salt. She’s been our home, our vehicle for adventure, and a constant teacher of too many life lessons to list. We’re celebrating with a video tour for all of you guys! She had a weekend at the “spa” in Barra de Navidad as our way of saying thanks. 💕

A lovely photo of Salt sailing into the sunset taken by our wonderful sister ship Pilialoha. We met Rick& Maria Lucía on the 2017 Baja Ha-ha ( @latitude38magazine) and loved having a twin during the rally. They have the most beautiful spinnaker, and sent us some lovely photos over this week. ⛵️💨 They’re back home in Hawaii, and we’re hoping to catch up with them soon (possibly as a stop over in route back to SF?). What are your thoughts on Salt sailing back up the coast to California or returning via Hawaii? ⛵️💨

Nothing like sitting on deck for the sunset in the calm after the storm. We love these rainy days and the fresh water they offer (for free!) to clean the decks and our @islesurfandsup paddle board too. 🏄🏽‍♀️🏝 Tonight’s drinks: A Dark & Stormy and a Tequila Sunset (grapefruit instead...) 🍹🥃

Marriage is about compromise, right? Especially when it comes to boat life... so if I have to be without a horse, at least Nick has graciously compromised on letting me have a unicorn. 🦄⛵️💨 Awwwwh yahhhhh!

Getting off of the boat and exploring is half the fun of cruising. The other half is sailing to your destination! ⛵️💨 Why do you dream of cruising?

We have the best kayak ever. This baby clocks at over 6 knots if we’re both pedaling hard... yep, pedaling (not paddling - paddling is SO much more work). Thanks to the hubby who indulged me for my b-day and let me buy it... and keep it on deck... and tote it to Central America. 🤓 Thanks to @wind_toys for being such amazing @hobiecatcompany experts. They’re fellow cruisers too, you know. Can’t get much cooler than them! We are so grateful for their service and recommend them to all friends and family. We can’t wait for our next boat toy! 💕 PS: Since our dingy is “Pepper”, we call the kayak “White Pepper”. I’m sure you can tell why... NotAnAd TheseGuysAreTheBest

Bahia Chamela was lovely, and we met amazing friends on SV Grace. Watching dolphins play feet away from the boat never ceases to be entertaining... neither does finding the Greg coconut vendors on the beach. All in all a great place to stop on the way to Barra de Navidad to see our friends on SV Pineapple before they race south. Gotta love cruising life!

Sailing into Bahia Tenacatita as the sun sets. The wind has died, the air is getting cooler, and the sun is still dancing on the rocks that line the entrance to the bay. Not a bad way to end a beautiful day of sailing! Now pass the vino, please... 😉

It’s official! Salt has joined the Panama Posse along with 49 other boats, including @sailingtotem & @particularharbor ⛵️💨 We couldn’t be more thrilled or excited to be heading towards the canal. We were both extremely lucky kids, and had families who went sailing and cruising regularly. Nick went through the canal around 1992, and I went through in 2003. A lot has changed during that time period, but nevertheless it will be exciting to be back in places that have helped shape our perspective of the world. Who else has cruised the canal or been to Panama? Leave your advice in the comments. 😊

We’ve finally (after 5 weeks!) departed Puerto Vallarta. A big thanks to @tedsetssail for delivering our forgotten propane tank. We ran out two days after our spare was delivered... life savers!! This morning we pulled anchor in Punta Ipala during the sunrise and set sail for Bahia Chamela, a charming little bay with lovely warm water. More pics to come soon!

Hanging on the beach in Sayulita. If you walk far enough and cross over a rock path and through a jungle, you come to another beach on the north. It’s considerably more quiet, but the surf is just as good and the view is clearly amazing... just waist you could see the whales playing in the distance. 😊🌈🐋

Puerto Vallarta is a bustling city compared to 20 years ago when my grandparents first sailed their Catana 44 here. The city has grown, but there are still special places that you can access only by boat such as Yelapa, Quimixto, and Las Ánimas. The downside is they offer to little to no anchorage and VERY deep water if you do find a spot to drop the hook. Nevertheless, the locals were amazing and the food was delish. We hiked to some stunning waterfalls too! There is so much humidity here the sky is muted and hazy. It’s beautiful but I admit, I miss the vibrant colors in our sunsets. 😊 sail sailing sailboat sailboats sailor sailors sailingyacht sailinglife sailingboat sailingboats sailorgirl sailingstagram liveaboard cruisinglife saltsailing adventurelife travel traveler travelers travelblog travelblogger travellife travelphoto travelpic travelphotography visitmexico puertovallarta anchored ⚓️ sunset @visitmexico @mexicotravel

Santa brought Salt a new toy! Thank you @islesurfandsup for making such a sweet board... it fits perfectly on Salt and is a lot of extra deck space for yoga (not to mention it’s an awesome way to adventure from the boat). 🌊🏄🏻‍♀️🏄🏼‍♂️💦 It was so sublime waking up before sunrise and paddling out to watch the yellow sun peak over the mountains over Puerto Vallarta. The water and the sky lit up orange and pink...

Four days before we left, Nick challenged me with finding a spinnaker. A very specific asymmetrical spinnaker, might I add. He gave me a budget too, as sailors often do. Three days later and after long drive to Alameda we had this lovely, perfect 10/10 condition, exactly-what-we-would’ve-order nearly new spinnaker in hand and our way to Salt. This was, quite literally, the day before we threw off the dock lines... ⛵️💨 The moral of the story? You wanna look good, stay under budget, get the most bang for your buck AND something that’s the perfect size? Have your wife find it... 🙃 BestWifeEver spinnaker asymmetricalspinnaker sailing sailboat sail sailingstagram sailor sailors sailinglife sailboats travel boatlife adventure photooftheday adventureisoutthere travelblogger travelphotography travelers travels saltsailing oceanlife traveling instatravel picoftheday liveaboards pineapplesails wegowherethewindblows latitude38

The street art and sculptures in La Paz are remarkable. They’re currently restoring the boardwalk, so only days after this was taken the boardwalk was torn out and is now being replaced.

We left Cabo San Lucas yesterday and sailed to Puerto Los Cabos, in San Jose del Cabo. It was bittersweet leaving our crew behind on the dock, but thrilling to be under sail again after four nights on the hook. ⛵️💨 When we arrived in Puerto Los Cabos we ran into our friends aboard SV Clarity of Leavenworth, WA. Penny offered us haircuts (we were starting to look at bit scruffy) and we had a lovely evening drinking beer and taking turns getting haircuts with the Pilialoha crew on the back of Salt. We were thrilled to find out a couple of friends were in town for the Ironman Triathalon, and scooted into town for an amazing dinner and even better company. Instead of catching a cab home, we walked the 2 miles back and stretched our legs. It was lovely. The nights are hot, and it's a good reminder that unless you're anchored out, you really are at the mercy of the heat as ventilation is nearly nil when you're not nose into the wind. We are headed to Los Frailes today, lots of amazing snorkeling and more there so more pics coming soon. 💕🌊⚓️ sailing sailboat sail sailingstagram sailor sailors sailinglife sailboats travel boatlife sailingboat adventure photooftheday adventureisoutthere travelblogger travelphotography travelers travels saltlife beachlife oceanlife traveling vacation instatravel picoftheday liveaboards sanjosedelcabo puertoloscabos

The trip down to Mexico 🇲🇽 has been amazing. We're on day 10 of the rally from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas, the Baja Ha-Ha, and are going to arrive in Cabo this afternoon. We'll post lots more pics and updates from Cabo where we'll have Internet to move the "good" photos from he Leica. In the mean time, here are a few to hold you over. ⛵️💨 Pic 1: Sunset on the evening of our 3rd overnight after leaving Turtle Bay Pic 2: Dan caught a yellowfin. It was YUMMY!! Pic 3: 2 generations of Salty Dogs. Meet Lee, Nick's dad, the guy who has had Nick on a boat since he was 11 days old. Pic 4: Lots of downwind sails with the new Pineapple Sails spinnaker. Even more time wing on wing with the whisker pole rigged, and even more time flying every sail we owned just for that extra half knot...
