The Kingdom of El Mero

What or where is that, you might wonder? We spent the holidays there with cruiser friends, boat projects and some sailing.

Margaritas, Upgrades and Back Pains

We’re going through all sorts of ups and downs and madness and the days just fly by. Our new home, the small kingdom of El Mero, treats us with all sorts of memorable adventures.

A 3-Star Experience in Guaymas

We spend some time on the hook and then move to an interesting marina in Guaymas where we celebrate David’s birthday.

Our Unique Life On A Sailboat – Looking Back

David too looks back on our very first season of life on a sailboat. It was challenging, fun, exhilarating, life changing.

Back on Dry Land – Our First Season is Over!

The time had come. Our very first season on Milagros was about to end. But first, we had to get Milagros ready for their summer hibernation.

Change of Plans and Background Noise

We’re spending a week at the Santa Rosalia Marina before crossing the Sea of Cortez where we plan to haul out Milagros for the summer break.

Heat, Waves, Coffee and Fire

As we are being roasted by the relentless Mexican sun, our very first season living the cruising life is slowly but steadily coming to an end. But first, there’s more adventures to be had!

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

We had to leave the beautiful anchorage in San Juanico because of unpleasant conditions, so we sailed north to meet Marga on Dogfish in Coyote Bay.

Disco in the Water and Party in the Sky

We leave the most beautiful bay and continue north. Isla Coronados and San Juanico are up next. Once again, we fix things with a beautiful view and meet a fellow Swiss traveler who is on a long journey.
