Hurricane MiriamHurricane Miriam barrels our way as I write. She is expected to hit the Baja peninsula on Saturday morning, albeit by that time, likely only as a tropical depression. What she does after that is anyone’s guess. Hopefully we’ll get the two breezy (20-30 knots) and rainy days that they are predicting here in San Carlos on Friday and Saturday, and nothing more.

To make things more interesting, we’re also moving out of our house and onto the boat Saturday morning. It should be an exciting entrance to life on the ocean.

We’re also supposed to take delivery of our standing rigging on Thursday (everybody make the sign of the cross and say a prayer that it actually happens! Seriously. Right now. Please.) With the storm coming our way, we won’t be able to do any work on the rig until the winds die down…delayed again for a few more days it looks like.

If you want to pee your pants alongside us, check out for all the storm data on Miriam.

PS – As the photos below indicate, we’re still managing to have some fun sailing with friends here in Mexico.
