Second breakfast of the day... lovely spot in La Cruz called The Octopus's Garden, operated by a French couple who came on a sailboat and stayed. Open air, big trees, resident iguanas, fresh roasted bean, Huichol art, and fantastic breakfast for 45 pesos (less than $3.50).
A walk with the dog turns into a workout at the marina amphitheater. Sammy's shadow looks like a perfect cartoon dog.

Lasers at La Cruz12/15/2011
We're anchored out at La Cruz - something mighty fine about being on the hook. We both had vivid Technicolor dreams the first night as the boat pitched around in an unusually confused sea. That's worth the price of admission right there! And always the elusive search for that ONE THING that's making the knocking sound or the squeak. It always stops when you're sneaking up on it, then starts up again once you're back in your berth. Classic. Here are the Lasers going back after a day's clinic on the water - and another memorable Mexico sunset.

Bluewater Barbie seems happy to be back in the warm - and appropriately themed in her garb. There's some concern about her face which seems unnaturally yellow - I'm sure she's fine.
