Loved Bahia de Los Sueños (aka Los Muertos). The resort opens up to cruisers, so we have full provledges without paying for anything more than piña coladas. Sweet deal! And pretty epic sunrises too. 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 losmuertos lapaz saltsailing bahiadelossuenos

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...

Cat Harbor, Catalina was really a peaceful place to anchor and was full of the most amazing fish! One evening a peculiarly lit boat appeared on the horizon and entered the harbor. Her silhouette was different from any vessel we'd ever seen, and Nick hypothesized that shewas a special fishing boat. Much to our delight, we were wrong. The next morning, the lovely replica of the San Salvador, the first European vessel to reach America's west coast, was moored next to us. What a sight! At first, not know what it was, we let our imaginations get the better of us and decided it was perhaps a pirate ship. Off to Never Never Land! @sdmaritime Thanks for the amazing view and the friendly waves as you ferried ashore. We hope your adventure on the Fall Pacific Heritage Tour was fantastic. For all our followers - you can support this amazing non-profit by booking passage on one of San Salvador's expeditions.

En route to Santa Barbara and decided to race a pod of dolphins (hint: we didn't win the race). It's so remarkable how the love to play in the bow wake and stare up at you. This pod had over 100 members, and was hunting and racing back and forth. Their sweet song was heard before they would peel off to grab a bite, only to be back minutes later. Check out our story to get in on the action. All of our love videos will be fun filled and give you a sneak peak into the cruising life (or at least our favorite parts of it). dolphins dolphin rocnaanchors rocnaanchor sailing sailboat santabarbara channelislands adventures travelgram sailboatadventures @rocna_anchors

Sailing between Monterey Bay and Morro Bay over the last two days has been glorious. Lots of wind, lots of swells, and... not a lot of sleep. 🌊 We left Monterey at 3:30 am on the dot, and had loverly, calm seas until about 10 am. From there we rode the waves straight to San Simeon, where we woke up this morning in a stunning anchorage with a view of Hearst Castle and the open ocean. We spent a leisurely morning at anchor and set sail for a 20 nautical mile jaunt over to Morro Bay. We were immediately greeted by a momma otter bathing her baby on her tummy (Bay was being bathed under protest, it was too adorable), and then pulled into the Morro Bay Yacht Club's dock. We're spending a relaxing evening here with these spectacular views. Really excited that we met another cruising couple around our age, aboard a Fastnet called "Tioga". 🍻to New cruising friends!

Monterey is really magical. As a sea life sanctuary, it is apparent that all forms of life are thriving and that the ecosystem here is strong. We went into Breakwater Cove today, a small but lovely marina. We'd had a new engine control panel shipped to the Harbormaster and we're excited to install yet another new toy... and we were just featured in the electronic version @latitude38magazine and on their Insta (yay, thanks!). Success! Time to celebrate with a tequila and lime. sailing sail setsail mexicobound sailors cruisinglife sailingadventures montereybay sailingstagram sailor sailinglife sailboats travel boatlife sailingboat adventure photooftheday adventureisoutthere travelblogger travelphotography travelers travels saltlife beachlife oceanlife traveling vacation instatravel picoftheday liveaboards

MexicoBound baby! This time last year we headed to Cabo for a brief break from work. We sat on the beach and talked about how much we wanted to actually fulfill our dream of cruising together, and how there is NEVER actually a "good" time to go cruising... you simply have to leave. 8 months later we both officially quit our jobs and then spent the next month and a half putting the finishing touches on Salt. ⛵️💨 These included: - A Lewmar folding helm (Allison is from the multihull cruising world, and couldn't abide by the helm blocking easy access to the transom). - The Rainman Watermaker. 35 gallons an hour? Oh hell yes. - A new main sail (wish we would've done it sooner!!) - A new BBQ CarpeDiem - A new inflatable bottom dingy and 9.8 hp Tohatsu (gotta beat the breakers). 🌊 There were a lot more creature comforts added, but for the most part that's what we needed to feel like we were just adding the proverbial cherry on top and ready to go.

Sailing from Santa Cruz to Monterey was absolutely full of excitement. As we left a 25' sailboat ran aground on the beach (the wind had died, presumably they had engine trouble?). 🌊⛵️💥 Fifteen minutes later we were surrounded by no less than ten humpback whales, many of which were male as they were signing up a storm (females don't sing). They were breaching, tail-slapping and having a fantastic time, from all appearances. 🐋 Nick ran below for only the briefest of seconds, and two huge males surfaced directly behind us, no more than 100 feet away, and made what sounded like barking sounds. We nearly jumped out of our skin! At 40' long, it was apparent Salt is about the same width as a humpback, but nowhere near its length. The males trailed us and checked us out for a mile or so, and then swam off to rejoin the group. 🐋🌊🐋🌊🐋🌊 Nick again attempts to venture down below (a stiff drink what's required after the aforementioned startle) only to hear me bellowing from deck, "There's something off the bow, it's moving fast... wait, there are multiples, wait, they have huge dorsal fins... OMG, what the hell is that?!" A pod of Risso's Dolphins (aka Monk Dolphins) were racing and playing along side us. 🐬🐬🐬Apparently they normally hunt at night, and at depths of 500+ feet so this was a particularly special sighting for us. We made I into the harbor, anchored out, and are currently relaxing to a little classical music in the cockpit. A little winding down was necessary after the excitement and joy of the sail today. 🤗☀️ sailing sail monterey montereybay anchoredout atanchor sunset picoftheday sailors humpbacks humpbackwhales rissos rissosdolphin santacruz wegowherethewindgoes bahahaha2017

Half Moon Bay's huge breakwater keeps the bay protected from the ocean swells. 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊 There is a natural reef that peeks over the waves at low tide just outside of the entrance. Apparently there is a surf competition here held annually... Big waves and good times! 🌊🏄🏻🌊🏄🏽‍♀️🌤 Fishe come and go throughout the day, and at he harbor you can buy fresh fish directly from the fisherman (yes, please!) 🐟🦀🦐 sailing sail setsail cruisers travel adventure picoftheday beach outdoors surf halfmoonbay sailors
