2 weeks without WiFi

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Internet Connectivity

Flower from the Sea of Cortez 

The Sea of Cortez is known for having large blank spots for internet signals. We were aware of that heading north, but there were still things that we missed. We learned that 1) yes, we can live without the internet  and 2) no, we don't really want to. For me the greatest hole was felt in connecting to friends and family, not just direct contact, but in reading your stories posted on Facebook. We do have a satellite connection (more on that later), but it is very basic.

What a Difference a Bay Makes

One day later and we are tucked into a quiet bay, layers of clothing are being shed, the water is so calm and quiet we can hear people talking on shore 300 yards away. Santa Rosalia was windy and cold, Bahia Concepcion is quiet and warmer. We still have not been swimming, it is not quite that warm, but it is close.

Turn around point

The cold wind is blowing, temperatures are dropping, we are digging out all the warm clothing  we can find ( which isn't much) and coming to the decision that it is time for us to head south again.
