7/18/2010 – Itchin’ to be movin’ on

Time to get this show on the road. Sitting at anchor in the Yaquina River is all very nice but it’s not getting us any closer to Mexico. We feel pretty removed from things up here. Oh, we have our NOAA weather reports on the VHF and the weatherfaxes via the SSB, but the internet has so much more to offer in the way of weather-watching. So, we’re going to spend one more day here at anchor and then cruise back to the transient docks at Newport’s South Beach Marina. There we’ll be able to do the laundry, take showers, and have internet access to have a better handle on when we can set sail. An added bonus will be that there may be other cruisers on the transient dock who can give us a better handle on what conditions we want for shoving off. But mainly, we’ll be closer to the action and the”gate” so to speak.

About sryoder

Steve & Lulu... retired. Had enough of the cold wet dreary fall/winter/spring in the Pacific Northwest. Bought a boat, fixed it up, sold our home and sailed to Mexico in November, 2010. Been here ever since except for occasional forays to the States (summer only, thank you) to visit the kids, parents and siblings. If you're looking for a sailing blog, this is the wrong place. This is a traveling, hunkering in, eating blog. Sailing is just how we get from place to place when we can't walk.
