Francois and the Doc Croc
03/10/2010, Ixtapa, Mexico

Francois gets to know the croc a little better (studiously avoiding the pointy end).

Dock Croc
03/03/2010, Ixtapa, Mexico

We were visited by an enormous crocodile in the marina. The croc seemed to be begging for handouts, and we complied.

You can't get a diver to clean your boat bottom or change zincs in the marina, because the crocs are too dangerous.

Back to Ixtapa
02/28/2010, Ixtapa, Mexico

After a month long sojourn in California, we are back on our boat in Ixtapa. Our flight back to Ixtapa was long but uneventful. We had a 5 hour stop-over in Mexico City. We got to Ixtapa about noon the next day, not having had any sleep during the long night. Our Mexican friend Alejandro picked us up at the airport and took us to a restaurant in Zihuatanejo for seafood cocktails. We then spent the afternoon on lounge chairs by the pool.

Solitude
02/23/2010, Diamond Peak, Lake Tahoe, CA

We had a nice last day skiing today at Diamond Peak. I skied Solitude
Canyon. Now I know why it's called an "Expert Area". It was very difficult
at times.

All of the route is forest and deep powder, with no evident trails to
follow. I fell three or four times, mostly as my skis got crossed trying to
turn in the deep powder. There is absolutely no one around, hence the name. I wouldn't advise skiing here without a cell phone.

The abundance of trees and rocks requires frequent turns. It's quite
beautiful.

At one point, I tried to turn, got my skis crossed, and landed face first in
the powder, and somersaulted. I was just glad no one was around to see me!
