Nicole’s editor (aka sister) here. As most of you know, the Let it Be crew have been sailing down the pacific coast of Baja California. Unfortunately they’ve had spotty Internet so Nicole has only been able to post of their adventures here and there on Facebook. They’ve had some great times and I wanted to make sure everyone who reads this blog gets to hear the stories too! So with her permission, I’m posting some of her content from Facebook here. Since some of it is from several weeks back, I’ll be dating everything so you know when it actually happened. Enjoy!

Sailing down the Pacific Baja California coast. Caught a couple nice yellowtail and the kids loved the biology lesson. Sushi the first night, fish tacos the second night, probably fish curry tonite. Will have to start reading more cookbooks. Thanks to my nephew Noah for the lures that provided dinner!

Two kind Mexican fisherman came to our boat this morning to trade. This is how it went: three nice sized lobsters for two Trader Joes juice boxes, four granola bars and a bit of cooked elk sausage I happened to have in the fridge. Both sides were very pleased with the outcome. Guess what’s for dinner tonight…

This morning started off cloudy and chilly, decided to brew me some brew – an Imperial Red IPA. Jack spent the morning getting my sixth anniversary present set up, a wort chiller! He is a romantic, but glad he is practical as well. He rigged the wort chiller with a small bilge pump that we dropped into the ocean, cooled my wort in 12 minutes flat, score! This afternoon the sun came out and we went ashore to play in the sand dunes with the kids, they loved it and burned some serious energy. Tomorrow is a two-day passage down the coast of Baja California to Turtle Bay.
Stay tuned for more re-postings!
