Melissa & Dave - Adventures at Sea

Day 7 - To the Beach


The wind came up as usual just before midnight but only blew 10-15 knots. Dave actually slept through the entire night despite the narrow anchorage. Hmmm, something is wrong with saying actually slept through the night on a vacation. Oh, well. Good practice for the real thing.

Day 6 - Heading back

Day 1 - Traveling



Off we go. Alaska has re-opened their LA-La Paz route greatly improving the trip down. Instead of flying into Cabo and dealing with a taxi and a two-hour bus trip we flew directly to La Paz from LA. The layover at LA was a couple hours but that allowed Dave to buy a pair of sunglasses. I…
