Don & Deb's Big Adventure on Buena Vista
On our way to the South Pacific and beyond...
Time To Get Back To The Big City
01/28/2012, Nearing La Paz

It's hard to believe that Buena Vista has not been in a city since we were in La Paz last May. The last time we were here it was with Cath and Linz after our Puddle Jump attempt last April went awry. I have mixed feelings. I like the City of La Paz with it's lovely malecon, nice weather and nice people. But living at the islands immersed in the wonders of nature every day has been so wonderful - I love that life too. Now the real work starts. We have just decided to purchase a new Hydrovane wind steering system in preparation for the long passages across the Pacific Ocean. I'll be making a trip up to California in a week or so to pick it up. Don will stay with the boat and get started on his long list. Wish us luck.

Time To Get Ready For The Puddle Jump!
01/25/2012, On Our Way To La Paz

We've had a wonderful month of exploring the coast of the Baja peninsula.
We've really enjoyed spending the winter here, warm and sunny in the days and cool and crisp at night. But now it's time to get serious about getting ready for the Pacific Puddle Jump. That's what it's called when you sail from the west coast of the Americas to the South Pacific. We've got a long list of boat projects, repairs, and upgrades to get done in the next month or so. First though let's say Good Job to Don as he gives up his weekly Wednesday Amigo Net Controller position. You've been a great Net Controller Don. I'm proud of you.

He Knows How To Warm Up

Our presence doesn't seem to bother him.

You just can't take your eyes away. Something new and different at every turn.

So interesting looking, almost spiritual.

Does this remind you of anything? Think 'Twilight Zone"

We're glad to have another week or so before we have to get into La Paz and get on with our boat projects. We've never spent much time here at Espirtu Santo. The rock formations here are outstanding. I've been reading the 'Clan Of the Cave Bear' series of books recently and I can't help but look up at all of the caves and think, "Which one would I live in?"

A group hug sea lion style. How sweet is that!
