We had an early start today for the trip to Los Cabos to take Elaine and Gigi to the airport. Afterwards we made a fun stop at Costco to load up and Bruce and Pablo did some boogie boarding (the only two seniors among the young ones!) at Cerritos – no injuries were noted at either Costco or Cerritos.
Isaiah 53:5-6 But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

March 23 – 25, 2018 We departed today with Elaine for the nearby anchorages of Balandra and Ballena (Ispiritu Santo) to do some exploring. There were lots of turtles and frigate birds nearby and while kayaking the crystal clear waters we were surprised to see a sea lion nearby sunning himself – thank you Lord!

Today we did a car field trip with Elaine and Pablo and Gigi (s/v Scarlet Fever) to La Ventana to visit their artisanal market (Bruce scored baby green beans, baby yellow and green squash, baby zucchini and mesquite smoked yellow snapper – I bought flourless brownies – yay!). We found a great coffee shop with a view of the famous kite/wind surfing bay which is considered one of the world’s top kiteboarding destinations.

March 11 – 20, 2018 We are loving La Paz! There are wonderful restaurants, an active cruising community, artisanal markets, marine chandleries, two english language Churches and of course the cow grocery store!

Happy birthday to the dog of my dreams!! Love you with all my heart.
Bahia Falsa to La Paz
04 March 2018
We finally made it! We made the five mile motor into La Paz, stopping at the fuel dock (squeezing in between Steven Spielberg’s mega yacht and Apple’s ultramodern yacht “Venus”) for fuel and to check in to CostaBaja marina. Looking forward to a big cruising community and grocery stores. We are on the fourth lesson in Andy Stanley’s series “Right in the Eye” – the opening question was “What do you do when your body wants what your heart knows is wrong?” – it could be something or someone. The Lord loves you and has something better for you.
1Cor 6:19-20 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your bodies.
Ensenada Los Muertos to Bahia Falsa
03 March 2018
Anchors up at 5:30 am to make the 28 mile passage through the Cerralvo channel. We had been warned that this channel could be very crazy with north wind and opposing tides – but we were blessed with a good forecast and an easy motor through with a spectacular sunrise!
Los Frailes to Ensenada Los Muertos
02 March 2018
February 27 – March 2, 2018 We motor sailed 46 miles in light conditions to Los Muertos (Cove of the Dead – aka Bay of Dreams – much easier to sell real estate with a nice name) – a good thing since the wind was on the nose. We’ve enjoyed our time here meeting new friends Nan and Duey (s/v Flight) and Greg and Dianne (s/v Alma). There is a wonderful restaurant on shore with wifi (yay!) so we all gathered at lunchtimes getting acquainted and using the internet.
26 February 2018
February 22 – 26, 2018 What a lovely anchorage! We have enjoyed this secluded anchorage which only has a few fishing tents/huts and a couple of houses lining the shore. The mountains are a beautiful backdrop for the white sand beach and turquoise water. We kayaked out to the snorkeling area and made our first shore entry in them – we definitely need practice with the surf!! We made a clumsy landing but scored a 10 on our exit – we’re still cleaning the sand out of them. Sigh.
