We flew to Phoenix 11/3 after vacating our floating home and carting out our belongings along the dock and up the ramp in the rain. The logistics of the last month have been mindboggling as we close out that wonderful water lifestyle (along with the resident noshing beavers under our home) and move on to the next.

Tonight we start the next chapter of adventure on the midnight ‘ejecutivo’ bus to Guaymas, Sonora about 9-12 hours south. We’ve enjoyed 2 days with friends sharing laughs and stories, buying last minute items. 

We anticipate our furnished bungalow for 5,000 pesos / 403USD where we’ll live for Nov/Dec. It’s a short bike or bus ride to the marina where we’ll work every day preparing Pura Vida for her splash.

And to the armchair story…getting ready to “set sail” entails a huge leap of faith that you’re doing the right thing. It is with a tearful eye that I write this: the passage from armchair to adventure weighing heavily on our minds as we move away from the comfort of Portland to a world of unknowns, scared yet giddy with the excitement of it all.

The adventures await and we are gearing up.
