Afloat Again

Once again we are back in the water and in our slip in the marina. The lift today was a good one and the paint held well. During the last 11 days we stayed in the "Bungalows Mar Sol". An extremely clean place run by a Mexican woman who really kept an eye on her staff. She even had one of the workers trying to get the oil from a car off the driveway. There was also a contingent of Canadians who stay there for the winter months. A really good group of people and as we found out...we were the babies as far as our ages!
As far as our next move, we will get the boat in shape the next few days, do a major provision, insure all systems are working well and head south. Where we end up will be any ones guess including ours! It sure feels good being back in the water and looking forward to getting off the dock soon!
