Comings and goings
18 December 2011 | Mazatlan
Lots of changes the past couple of days. On Friday Amber and Ashley arrived to Mazatlan, after checking into their hotel we made our way back to Marina El Cid where they were to enjoy their first boat party. Our friend Keith on Victoria Dos had purchased 2 kilos of delicious Mazatlan shrimp and as he was returning to Canada the next day for Christmas, we had to eat it all or throw it away...no problema. This was also to be Sharon's last night in Mazatlan until she returns after the holidays, so it was a sorta welcoming and going away party for all. After enjoying happy hour on Victoria Dos the girls (Amber, Ashley, Sharon) and I headed out to a Vernados game (baseball), everyone was kinda pooped out so we left after about the 6th inning and called it a night. Yesterday morning before Sharon left, we all met for a beautiful desayuno (breakfast) on the beach.
Sharon and I have spent most of the past 3 months together...and living on a 42 foot sailboat...this puts a whole new meaning on the word togetherness. We have each made many adjustments over the past 3 months, getting use to living together, getting use to living in a third world country, getting use to the cruising lifestyle (it's not for everyone) and for Sharon getting use to living on a boat. Over the past few months we have become not just boyfriend and girlfriend but also teammates. We have discovered, and are still discovering who does what jobs better, this includes everything from who cuts up the onions (I do) to who takes the helm when anchoring (she does).
So as I'm excited to continue showing Amber and Ashley Mazatlan, I was already missing Sharon even before she stepped into the taxi....enjoy Vermont and hurry back.
