For some reason, I've been hesitant to cross the border. Ok, for a number of reasons. When I first started planning this trip out, my goal was to sail around the Channel Islands, and its hard to give up on a past goal, even though I may want to get into mexico soon. So I'm not going. That whole plan of getting here and there by certian dates, well, those dates are going to change. A lot of it has to do with meeting up with Danny, and he'll be coming down to LA, so I'll be in the islands for a few more weeks.
As much as I grumble about the USA at times, and maybe even about southern california, I am still scared to go into Mexico, where I have never been before. I will go, but I delay partly out of intimidation. The other part of me, of course is that I am in the water again. Oh how joyous it feels to get out in the water and dive. I dove out at catalina Island over the last few days quite a lot. I shot a green fish with a blue eye (tasty) and saw a bunch of lobsters, so I'll have to figure out how to get those, and just had a good time in the water in general. So I will stay, visit more islands, and keep visiting my friends here.
Oh, and its hurricane season in mexico right now. Previously I have been scoffing at them, but they aren't anything to scoff at. So I feel like I'm making a smart move to steer clear of the area where its possible to get hit by a big wind.
