What can I say? With all the excitement (not) of the Del Mar Fair opening last Friday I was overwhelmed by this beautiful lady.
Whats up with that dingy?06/19/2009, San Diego
Yea, I know its been a long time since we updated the blog. Frankly, its just not that interesting here. We are working, buying boat parts and worrying about the economy. In an effort to boost the economy we purchased a new dingy. Our was only about 8 years old which isn't that much but it had some hard use.
Back to work!03/13/2009
Our Mexico season comes to an end, and the Del Mar season starts.
The boat gets stripped of just about everything! Halyards and sheets come down, get washed and stowed below, along with sails and canvas. And a couple of tarps go up for a little sun protection.
The interior gets cleaned and everything stowed for a long hot summer. And our protector takes his post guarding the Slacker.
Of course we had time for one last Dock 6 Party!
After driving for 3 days we arrive back in to Encinitas and immediately need Ugg boots!

More Mazatlan Carnival Video02/27/2009
Mazatlan's Carnival is reported to be the 3rd largest carnival in the world, and the Mazatlecos sure do know how to put on a party! Carnival is the week before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. The fun in Mazatlan began on Wednesday the 19th of March with the coronation of the King of Joy and the burning of Bad Humor. The effigy is of a local man in Mazatlan who is not well liked or has pissed off the people of the city and his burning is to bring fun times for the carnival.
And then the election of the Queen of the Pacific
Some of the decorations in Plaza Machado
This guy was walking all over the plaza selling these huge crucifixes.
One of the best signs. The bathrooms at carnival are at a premium!
