Train, Boat, Five Days in Cabo (not) Day 3

Another day at sea, and we are slowly making our way towards Catalina. Although I am sad we are missing Cabo San Lucas, now that the satellite photos are posted, most understand that Cabo would not have been much fun.

DSC02144 Some years ago I flew my Cessna 172 to Catalina’s awkward airstrip just to eat the great buffalo burgers at the airport café. They were as juicy and flavorful as any burger I had ever tasted; worth the trip for sure.

As far as the “awkward” airport,… Continue

Train, Boat, Five Days in Cabo (not) 2

This morning I called my wife, Michael, to ask about the fires raging and approaching our area. At the moment, all is cool, well, at 100 degrees perhaps the word should be normal.

Tahiti in the Middle

For the last few years I’ve taken Transatlantic repositioning cruises. These cruises are a great way to see some European ports and then spend lovely days at sea on the way to Fort Lauderdale.

This year I decided to try a Transpacific. If you can hook on to the last leg of a “special” cruise, like one around the Horn, or an Alaska-Asia-Los Angeles, you’ll get superb service and ports you might not ordinarily visit.

Regent was my choice with an 18 day itinerary including 12… Continue
