We are in boat project mode now, as we prepare to sail the Sea of Cortez. Mike is literally pulling out the Navigation Station and deciding which components to keep/replace. New Solar Panels, courtesy of Al Lynch, go up within the week (or so...it is Mexico).
To keep things interesting, Mike and I, along with a few cruiser friends, entered the Harker Boards 3rd Annual SUP Race yesterday. We did a relay and a sprint and did pretty well, considering we hadn't been on our boards for a few months and it was our first race. Everyone else had hard boards, so we were a bit at a disadvantage on an inflatable. It was still a blast and we weren't expecting to win. LOL
We found our way down to La Encantada, the place to go in La Paz for the best live music. They have a little bit of everything...jazz, blues, indie. Just not opera. We met the owner, Lila, who was very nice and actually invited me to sing. Let's see if I can grow a pair before we set sail. It's hard to explain, but singing jazz and blues or even pop is not even close to the same as opera, classical or musical theatre. I have been trained to read music and sing/play from music. Take that away and I have a hard time feeling comfortable singing. So...I will have to learn the pieces I want to sing, in the keys that feel the best in my voice, and go down and just sing! Ha! Right! Well...never say never. I do love to sing.
Signing off for now...
