I was a lady of the Wall again12/04/2011, Mazatlan
Had a super week in Mazatlan with s/v's Panta Rhei, Sirena, Grace and Ponderosa. I included a picture of the 'ladies' who went walking every morning at 7am. (In 1988, the ladies that went walking we called the Ladies of the Wall.) I got some great shots with the beautiful sunrise colors as well. Unfortunately the last day we walked, we thought we heard gun shots and later did hear a policeman was shot. Still checking into the details.
San Diego to Mazatlan from Scott's eyesSunny Mexico

We left San Diego with a cold front approaching and had to beat into moderate winds, as the front approached all we could see was a black wall of rain squalls coming at us.
Leaving CaboSunny but we'll be short on wind
Well, our Cabo days are over.... Wanted to jot down a few facts for those behind us. Officially it cost $13 a day to swing on your own hook and dinghy in to a dinghy dock 30 mins. away. The dinghy dock is 30 pesos a day but no one sat there and collected from us so it was one tax we didn't have to pay. The water taxi was $3 a head one way and allowed us to be dropped off closer to our friend's condo but be sure to return before dark. All bets are off as to if they'll still be running.
We got out of California!!Donna/ a little rolly in the anchorage but not bad.

We made it to Cabo! Our only disaster was a salt water fitting from our deck salt water pump spliting and spilling salt water on some clothing and blankets. We looked like a refugee boat as everything 'dried'. Now to rinse them all in fresh water! Of course, we had just talked about the importance of making sure all pumps were shut off but this one got turned back on after our anchor in Santa Maria to clean off the anchor. Our bad.
Our last days in CALIFDonna/couldn't be nicer

What a gorgeous day! No wind on the water so we're glad that we chose yesterday to sail from our downtown mooring to our 3 day anchor permit off of Coronado Island. Four friends joined us so a great time was had by all.
We're backDonna / had rain today!

Flew back on 9/26/11 and spent a week scraping the bottom of the boat. Our plans are to sail to Mexico in Nov. as soon as the weather gives us the go signal. Enjoying our city skyline especially at night.
