We are not in paradise now...
but we were!

Not that the Pacific Northwest isn't a paradise. I just think of paradise as some place warmer than here and where you don't have to pay extra to take a shower at a marina. The Sea of Cortez (Cortez de Mar) is warmer and you don't have to pay extra to take a shower.

We now cruise in the Pacific Northwest on the Salish Sea. I have added a section to this site about the Salish Sea and the West Coast of Vancouver Island. I will be building on this part of the site for awhile.

Morning Star is an Orion 27 built by Pacific Seacraft in 1987. We have taken her to the Sea of Cortez twice. The first trip was in the winter of 93-94 and the second was from December 96 to May 98 and we left Morning Star in dry storage in San Carlos, Sanora during the summer of 97.
