November 29th – Going, going, GONE!

At 4:45 am on Tuesday 29th we finally free Camelot from the clutches of San Carlos. Fumbling in the dark we soon find our way out of the Marina and into to the open sea. Adios, San Carlos! We’re giddy and excited as we begin our trip south. I’m sniffing the air like a Beagle, happily taking in the smell of the sea. I missed it more than I thought!

It’s a 187 nautical miles trip to our next port of call. We’re going to Topolobampo. Yeah, I know; what a funny, twisted name… We have very little information on this destination and don’t much know what to expect. We only know that it’s a safe spot where we can rest a day or two and interrupt the long haul south. A couple of fellow cruising boats are already there, it’ll be nice to get together again.

All in all, it’s a pretty uneventful, smooth trip. We even get to sail, if only for an hour. We rely on the faithful engine for the rest of this voyage. Still, it feels so good to be underway again!
