25 November 2012 | La Paz, Baja California Sur
We have been in La Paz at the Palmira Marina for a few days now. Each morning we have been on the 9 am shuttle to town. Town is only about 2 miles away. We have signed up and are members of Club Cruceros - a group made up of sailors from around the world who have made La Paz their home. The group is a wealth of information. You can find just about anything you need via the network of people. We had Thanksgiving dinner with our American friends on their Thanksgiving. We have eaten at the market in town - chilaquiles with fried eggs!! We took a taxi ride to the outskirts of town to the Walmart - needed to try and find some food items from home. Hard to believe, but fresh whipping cream is nowhere to be found! We are walking the town almost everyday and are getting to know our way around - sort of. We walked back to the marina from town but not without stopping for ice cream twice!
We have also found that there is another Scot Free here in La Paz.... They are Scott Free (his name is Scott). On the VHF radio, there was some confusion as to which Scot Free was calling. Sooooo, we announced to the fleet that since there were two sailboats called Scot Free, and that we were from Canada, we would call ourselves.... Scot Free, Eh? and hopefully the fleet can now contact the boat that they are looking for!
