hola! hola! im in mexico!

hey dudes and babes!

sorry for the lack of project updates on here! i did it, i made it to departure, im officially on my way! at the moment im in Ensenada, Mexico. ive been here a few days waiting out the insane series of fronts that have been blasting the so-cal coast. the days have been spent eating tacos, playing in a mariachi band, and swimming with sea lions. not really! mostly ive been just looking after the boat as the weather is very precarious and its pretty much a full-time job just keeping the boat safe. i should be out of here in a a few days when this all clears and then ill be on a 10 day sail down to a town called La Cruz just outside of Puerto Vallarta. Pretty excited - one of my fave places in Mexico.

I'm going to, of course, keep updating on here but for more frequent updates check in with my other blog at and my twitter at

ciao pals!
