You will have a wonderful time. That is called a milk run, and especially from San Diego
. There are 3 major spots that people stop after S.D. Some go to Ensenada, but that's yuck in my opinion....I KNOW!
Magdellena Bay, or the small bay adjacent just north. I can't remember the name.
Then you are in Cabo.
There are many small places to anchor
such as Ascension, Abrie Ojos, Cedros, and others. After that the world, and a variety of choices are yours. With the cat it will be a quick, and wonderful ride. Great way to start your new life. Start reading Latitude38 if you haven't already.
Latitude 38 - The West's Premier Sailing & Marine Magazine.
Tons of information on what you are about to do. They were the complete cause of me single-handing from S.F to Cabo in 93, and I am sure you know about the Baja
Haha if you know about lat38. Another great way to get your feet wet
