Ok so I never finished yesterdays
journal cause it got real rough. I had never been in such big seas.
The boat is very comfortable
considering. She takes the abuse will and rides very securely in the waves.
I understand why so many boats in Cabo set off and returned the same day. I
thought they were being wusses but they were not. In fact since most of them
have lighter and smaller boats, they are definitely courageous. I never
expected this part of the trip to be so demanding.
Everything in the boat is either salty
or smells of vomit. I neglected to secure a couple of hatches and we took
some water in the boat. No damage except a stain on the settee. Jonah puking
in our bed was the worst. Thankfully I have a thick mattress pad which
sopped everything up. Poor fella. He is a bit grumpy but considering
everything – Jordan and I think he is doing great. Mom is the best for
cuddling when sick and I had to cuddle the vomit smelling little fella.
Today the winds and waves have eased up and we are having a fairly pleasant run to San Blas. It is an fairly open anchorage and we will arrive after dark. We are still considering veering off to chew some more time up so we can arrive in the light.
