Marina Puerto Escondido- Mornings are Mejor
Combining a story by the HelmsMistress with Places We’ve Been, we say goodbye to Puerto Escondido, hopefully not for the last time.
Places We’ve Been: Los Frailes, BCS, Mexico
We spent an entire day rounding the cape from Cabo to Frailes, not really knowing the afternoon beating we were about to get.
Places We’ve Been: Cabo San Lucas, BCS, Mexico
Getting to Cabo was a huge milestone as it meant there was no turning back for us. And, it meant the end of Baha Ha-Ha 2019. We were on our own, what an eye opener for us.
