Hello there, I am very happy for you guys and the great adventure you're in.
If it's okay with you In would like to ask a few things about the sailing, since the wifey and I want to sail from Mexico to Canada.
We on Gypseastwo are all happily living here in Ensenada, Mexico. We are in the Cruise Port Village Marina and it's great. Definately recommend it here, frendly staff, great position (you can walk to town) new amenities and pontoons. Ensenada itself is just lovely, friendly, welcoming, safe and the carnival (4 days) last week was terrific. This is our first time in Mexico and we love it. So much we are not planning on going anywhere from here for at least a year, not even cruising south. Yep so sailing for a whole year (at least). After our trip from Australia via Canada to here I couldn't be happier. I am looking forward to lots of land based activities for awhile. Like walking our new addition every night along the boardwalk, a black fluffy puppy (rescued) which we think has labrador in her. We've called her "Matilda". The girls (my siamese) Mia and Poppy are adjusting slowly Mia being a bit slower on learning the sharing side of things. Boat wise we have repaired most minor stuff and cleaned everything (till I was blue in the face). Our home is now back to livable but not sailing capibilitiy yet. That will take a major refit. We are going to leave that for at least a year before we decide if we'll go ahead or not. So it's cheers from the aussies Lesley, Alan, Mia, Poppy and now Matilda on Gypseastwo happily sitting in Ensenada.
