omens and weirdnesses at sea...LOL

we were minding our p's and q's,  as we  raised the mizzen in  sd, it was already ripped---  was not  ripped   when  inspected at dock....strange..number one...

 we  sailed on th e prefrontal winds  as far as salsipuedes, then , as one ofmy crew loooked like death,  i decided to  turn into  ensenada.....   we were, at that time, in calmer waters andlss winds-- turned on engine--- as we motored   at  course heading 130, in calmness, the ships bell  decid to fall to the deck--!!!!!!!!

 ok--  we continued into  ensenada,  caught the dock at botes juanitos, and tied up.  sleep was awesome!

 next morning we learned the port was closed  due to the winds being severe----  storm coming in--we just made it  to hide from it-- the front  stretched to  just south of turtle bay--- tooo far to run  in the dark  night  --we were smart to come in from it. we would have pushed boat and sick crew waaay too far---   

omens rock, and guardian angels  happen to  be real.......always pay attention not only to weather but also to the omens and weirdnesses given to ye-- we watched building seas and   freshening winds --

 

 we are gooood   to go thu or  sat, as new crew is  coming tue nite...rogue-ish waves happen for a reason and   gusts indicate the upcoming freshening. donot ignore these small warnings.

 

smoooth sailing !!!

"Sounds like a nice way to share experience. As you know I haven't crossed an ocean like you but have done a bit of coastal cruising as well as lived aboard the last three years. I'll be interested in both learning and sharing…"
