Another day in paradise

18 April 2011 | Paradise
Yesterday we had another easy going day in paradise. People often wonder what the hell we do all day...and to tell the truth, we often wonder the same thing. The days seem to fly by, first of all we never seem to get going until late morning. Once we do get going there are always lots of jobs to do around the boat. There's cleaning, varnishing, routine maintenance items and of course those pesky boat repairs. Before we know it it's 1700 and time to go to happy hour.
Yesterday Shaybo and I decided to take Si Bon out and empty her nearly full holding tank, we could have just gone to the marina pump out, but we both wanted Shaybo to get a little practice maneuvering the boat and this gave her a good chance to practice. Shaybo took over the helm right out of the marina and skillfully maneuvered Si Bon through the tricky La Paz channel and out to sea. We made up imaginary docks and she practiced tuning into the boat and bring her to a stop. We fiddle farted around for an hour or so then headed back, Shaybo wouldn't let go of the helm, she brought the boat back through the narrow, dog legged harbor entrance like a seasoned pro.
We're getting ready to leave later today for a 3-4 day mini cruise, probably won't be able to update the blog for a couple of days but I'm sure I'll have a story or two when we get back.
God bless.

This is the plan.....In late 2009 after going on a wonderful charter to Turkey and Greece and seeing and living the cruiser lifestyle I decided to move into the next phase of my life. [...]
Extra: I am currently in Banderas Bay (Puerto Vallarta area), where I will be spending the 2012 hurricane season at the beautiful Paradise Village Marina.
