The sea is like a painting but the pain is in my heart. I am over the top for being here but I miss a bunch of people. I speak to my family and love at least once a day but sometime you want to hold hands.

Miss you guys too but I manage to browse all of you time to time. My server at home transmits a collective feed, something like a private Kottu. I like the positive notes I hear from SL direction. Be good before the sun


Man it is hot, but the sea breeze (We have not run into storms yet, only a few squalls which were fantastic.) makes you forget that the sun is actually turning you into a pinkish lobster. I have shed enough skin I think I am about a Kilo lighter. And at high noon your brain goes into a hibernate mode and wakes up only at sunset or after few dives into the cold sea. So I only think during the evenings!sunset leaving Cortez

It is great to take dips in the sea or Pacific Ocean based on where we are. We caught a humongous tuna for last dinner and that was the best fish I had in a long while. I got to clean the decks after they massacred the fish.

The lack of photographs is due to restrictions placed upon us by the company who sponsored the trip and even personal photographs taken on the boat need to be cleared before posting. The last photo was not a problem as it was taken on the land. But I am going to post a cropped sunset that we experienced when we left Cortez. Basically I will be doing the same whenever I can or until I get caught.

I surf when ever I can and read your posts.


In to the unknown

That is countries not the surface of the Earth! Not bad for 25 years (I was travelling even when I was in Mom’s tummy).

Just to say that I am at the top of the world by being under water, below hammerhead sharks. I sure do remember how I used to cling to my brother when I was small,  same way, I ran to him (swam very very very fast, once I saw these wonderful creatures in the water).

One of the evenings, we were discussing about where in the world we have been, I am proud to say a lot, again thanks to my parents. Too bad I am not adding any on this trip. I have been to these countries before but the re is a chance that I might add one. The red is what I have visited and the white is yet to visit.

I am fully tanned (except certain areas) and shedding my skin like a snake already. I am loving it. I figured out to Twitter from my phone. So there might be more tweets than posts! (Twitter link at the bottom ot the site, one of those wordpress gadgets)

I just dropped my better half off at the airport, she is on her way to Fukuoka. So I am clearing up some last minute details before I leave. Like someone take care of my place, collect mail, and make sure my plants (like ones that produce nice flowers like below and are not supported with automatic drip irrigation)  get water in the hot summer months.yellow

I am all wired up, so far even not feeling that I am going to miss a bunch of people closer to my heart. I am usually like that and will be wailing inside the next day.

It was also good to know that your bosses like you and not likely to fire you during these bad economic times.

All my gear is already gone ahead of me. I will be carrying a small bag when I fly off to Mexico, Cabo San Lucas to be exact. We will doing some diving in Sea of Cortez as a final training for uninitiated people like me and fun practice for the veterans like my brother.

Then we will set sail off to the southern waters. I will make another post from Cabo San Lucas before we sail.

Be good and keep your blogging to it’s best so I can enjoy my trip as well as keeping up with what is going on in SL!

Adios Amigos.
