Adventures

I have created this blog with the hopes that you, my friend, will follow me as I sail around the world (figuratively or literally, not sure yet) with my parents on their Contest 48. Whereas I hope to keep you updated with exciting adventures of exotic ports and epic waves, keep in mind that cruising - that is, traveling by boat in a leisurely fashion - tends to be filled with days of intense boredom, punctuated by moments of sheer terror. Please keep this in mind as you read these entries, for this platform will be just as much an attempt for me to maintain my sanity (and connection to the California-based world), as entertainment and reassurance for you. And so, follow me as I sail the world.

Unos Fotos

Hello, my friends. Many of you have been asking me to post more photos to my blog. Whereas I would love to post a few with every entry, the internet here is....um....slow... particularly with uploading images. However, for you, buen amigo, I will make it happen. Enjoy!


Wendaway (Uncle Mark and Aunt Wendy's boat) and Rutea (our boat). It was fun having them as neighbors for a few days.




Que colores! La Cruz has a great Sunday market where you can get delicious foods and beautiful artwork, clothing, hats. This is the nuts and candy stand. Best candied walnuts here.




EXHIBIT A: PINEAPPLE EXPRESS




Boat maintenance! During this project I learned how to solder wires, use a volt meter, take apart a bilge pump and swear like a !@#$% sailor (although I'm still working on the last one).



Some fierce sailing action out in Banderas Bay. Fun!!!!


I hope you enjoy these few glimpses into my life... wish you were here! I have an album on Facekook with more pictures... check 'em out if you wanna!
