Cruising with the crew of CALOU on the Baja Ha-ha and Pacific Puddle Jump
Cliff divers of Mazatlan

Mazatlan is famous for its cliff divers (or more accurately: rock divers). These daredevils leap from a tall rock into pretty shallow waters. This requires a fairly daring horizontal traverse in order to not hit the rocks. A diver was killed two months before when he failed to clear the rocks. I noticed the diver doing the sign of the cross before jumping. Now I understand why!

New Year's at Canuck's

We spent New Year's Eve at Canuck's, a watering hole and dancing spot for expatriate Canadians (and Americans) in Mazatlan. The music was great and we danced all night. Friends Bob and Roberta Soleway, who sold everything and are moving to Mazatlan, joined us.
