Wonder why we ever go home
A week of nights like this
This is our view at anchorage during morning coffee. We came into port to drop off our guests, post a quick blog and check our emails. Well it's back out today and we will be back in La Paz for Carnival on the 7th. The weather is back to normal and is warming up even more
If the Phone Doesn't Ring it's Me
Heading back out to the Islands for a couple of weeks. We are planning on being back in La Paz for Carnival on the 7th of February, this will be where we are going to be anchored out. It will be a short dingy ride to the malecon and we should be able to hear the music all night long from the festivities that go non-stop for 5 days.
Catching up while we are in town Just another beach bar
The weather has been cold here the last week, locals are saying that this is the coldest winter that they can remember. The port has been closed by the Port Captain and no one has been able to leave due to the high winds and seas. We made the best of it and got some chores done, some visiting done and explored the town a little and found yet another beach bar. In this photo I am standing on the waters edge looking back at the bar. The port opened yesterday and the anchorage is slowly emptying out with the boats that were stuck and trying to get over to the mainland. We are all stocked up and ready to explore some more anchorages and beaches. So if the phone doesn't ring you know that it will be us, exploring some beach, somewhere.
Life on "The Hook"
This is a little sample of what our last couple of weeks have been like. Three pictures at supper time and one at breakfast. Our days have been filled with dingy rides, long walks on the beach, fabulous meals, reading, a few boat chores and oh ya, cocktail hours. Life on "The Hook".
This is the life around our boat. It is like floating in your own aquarium, we see all sorts of fish, mantas, pelicans, seals, puffers, turtles and whales. The turtles seem to be a bit camera shy as they don't come too close and don't stay up for long.
Seven weeks during the summers seemed to rush by and zoom, the holidays were over. It has been twice that now and we have still not gotten into total relax mode, but it is getting closer. One of the nice things about living aboard is that if we get tired of the scenery we just pull up the hook and re-set in a different anchorage. Uummmmm relax, relax. Yup, I think it's starting to work.
