San Carlos Bound!!

On Saturday March 10th at 3:15 in the afternoon, Jerry and I cast off the lines of La Cruz for the last time.  We were on our last leg up to San Carlos, about 541 miles which would take us 107 hours.  We had a great trip, the first two night were a little rough with high seas and winds ranging from 15 to 20 knots.  We saw a couple of humpback whales in the distance, and one that crossed us right infront of the boat.  As always I am slow with the camera, but I did the best I could.

We had the poles out the whole time, but only hooked up one sailfish that of coarse we released.  Tuesday afternoon, 4 days into the trip we saw a pod of killer whales out in the distance. 
killer whales, I tried to take a video, but it is even worse than the picture.  But I will post it on You Tube later.
The rest of the trip was pretty uneventful, which is not always a bad thing, we arrived at the bahia enterance of San Carlos 12:30pm on Thursday the 15th.  We had a great last passage, now it is time to go see some of our old friends and have a much deserved beer up at our old hangout Club de Capitanes.  Then we will start getting the boat to be hauled out the second week of April and get ready to go home for the summer.
