Our future plans for cruising are open ended and rather flexible. We expect these to change.

April 2006: Leave Seattle and start heading north. A short stop in Port Townsend for some jobs, then on to the San Juans, and Gulf Islands.

Spring 2006: Inside passage, Vancouver Island, Desolation Sound, Princess Luisa Inlet....

Early Summer 2006: Alaska, inside passage mostly. Possibly as far north as Glacier bay.

Mid Summer 2006: Start heading South again. West coast of Vancouver Island mid July.

Late Summer 2006: Southward down Washington/Oregon/California coast. Planned stops in Coos Bay, and San Francisco. Harbor hopping down the coast from there, eventually getting to San Diego in the Fall.

Winter 2006: Down to Mexico after hurricane season is over (Beginning of November). Possibly as part of Baja Ha-Ha. Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Zihuatanejo...

Spring/Summer 2007: More Mexico. We will most likely hide out the summer hurricane season in the Sea of Cortez/Gulf of California.

Fall/Winter 2007: Down the coast of Central America possibly all the way to Equador. Spent the season on the Mexican Riviera ( Tenacatita, Barra de Navidad, Santiago, Manzanillo)

Spring 2008: West to the Galapagos, then on to the South Pacific.   Still in Mexico

Summer 2008: Back to California to take care of property/visit family/avoid hurricanes.

Fall/Winter 2008: Supposed to be back in Mexico, however still in California.

Winter/Spring 2009: Mexico, (I am so tired of California and living in the states).

Summer 2009: Back to Mazatlan, Hurricane season up in the Sea of Cortez with our Granddaughter Mysti.

Later: Continue south and west. Who knows? Tahiti, Fiji, Cook Islands, New Zealand, Australia...
Need to find somewhere to work (Panama? Kwajalien? New Zealand?)
