Sea of Cortez that is…
We arrived in La Paz December 11 just in time to go for ice cream and dinner with our friends on SVBanyan. They were heading out the next day so it was great to have a chance to visit with them before they went. We also met up with Linger Longer finally! After years of trying ;). Kris and Kirk were neighbours from the inner harboir in Victoria.
La Paz has all the services you might expect in a city…But finding them might be tricky. The morning cruisers net on vhf channel 22 is super helpful. Also Club Cruceros, a little expat community cruisers club running on the grounds on Marina de La Paz, is super helpful too.
Christmas dinner complete with our 2nd ever puzzled turkey (so it can fit in the oven) was fun. We got to share it with our new friends on SV Yare (kid boat!!). And it was really great.
Liam’s birthday party, by the Club Cruceros playground was fun too. All the kid boats came :). Made for a special time – piñata and all!!
I think due to sugar overload (Christmas then birthday) we got knocked down by a nasty cold or virus of some kind… Not fun but didn’t last forever. This has led us towards a much healthier diet in the hope of staving off future illness… We’ll see how long that lasts 😉
The last day of 2015: Horseback riding at Rancho el Cajon was fantastic. Neli and Liam were in heaven. Kim, the guide, originally from Oregon, was excellent and we had a fun time. A three hour ride was only about $28 CAD each.
We left La Paz January 5 to head north into the islands for a bit before heading towards the mainland and Banderas Bay. We are buddy boating with SV Yare.
Surprising that we have cell coverage in Isla Espiritu Santo area, but that’s Mexico it seems… Surprising.
