Projects today

21 November 2013 | Marina De La Paz, BCS
Boat projects today. Caught a cab to Home Depot this morning. I would have used the local bus, the "Collectiva", except today was another holiday honoring their revolution. They had quite a parade down the middle of town, so the buses were a bit unreliable. I walked about 10 blocks to a little cantina called Olympia, at the recommendation of one of my neighbors. After sitting down and ordering, I realized that I had left my money on the boat. I pulled out $6 US and explained my dilemma in Spanglish. My server told me it would be no problema, and happily served me coffee, fresh juice, and the best huevos rancheros that I have had so far.
At Home Depot I picked up some solar patio lights and some PVC sprinkler pipe pieces to make light brackets with, some wood dowel to make a fuel dipstick, a phone charger cord and some light line for rigging up new flag halyards. This was fun doing projects as it reminded me of what I did most days before leaving on this trip. I did manage to drop one of my newly made light brackets overboard. Oh well. I took the dinghy on a high speed tour of the southern end of La Paz harbor this afternoon. The water was smooth and the view was really something.
I went to a welcome party for the "Haha" fleet, which was well attended by Haha-ers, as well as the local cruising community. The food was good and the crowd was really friendly. I left early when the oldsters started doing the "la Bamba" dance. The weather has cooled a bit since we got here just a few days ago. The nights have cooled to the low 60s and the daytime temps have stayed below 80, which is a welcome relief. Well, tomorrow I will change the motor oil and fuel filter. Oh boy.
