Resort cruisers

28 November 2011 | Marina El Cid, Mazatlan, Mexico
You may have wondered where all the exciting blogs have been the past few days, when living the life of a resort cruiser you have very little time to squeeze in blogging. So tonight I've cleared my social calendar so I could update all of the blog faithful. Since attending our wonderful Thanksgiving evening feast we've had plenty going on....let me see, on Friday our neighboring dock ( "B" dock) had a dock party, dock parties are basically a pot luck dinner where other cruisers share information (B.S.) with each other while eating and drinking. We cut out early and some of our friends on "A" dock came back to Si Bon and continued sharing information (B.S.) and drinking while listening to a free concert and fireworks show courtesy of the wedding reception across the harbor channel. On Saturday Sharon and I headed out early to walk to a local marine store, we walked for a total of about 4 hours and finally found the stinking store....which basically had none of the things that we needed. Saturday night we were invited over to S/V Victoria Dos, owned by new friends Keith and Donna from Canada, we all brought along some food to share and enjoyed a fine dinner of lobster, steaks and hot dogs while listing to a free concert and fireworks show courtesy of another wedding reception across the harbor channel.
One thing we have discovered here in Mazatlan is that there are a TON of Canadians. On Sunday the Canadian Football League (CFL) played their Superbowl...which is called the Grey Cup, since we have grown fond of most of the Canadians here, we decided that we would go with them to a place called "The Saloon" and support the team from British Columbia, The Lions. It was a pretty easy decision for me as the Chargers were playing at close to the same time and since The Saloon has about 20 televisions I figured I could watch the hapless Chargers take the last breath of their dismal season while supporting my Canadian friends at the same time. Well I gotta tell ya that the Chargers stink and CFL is pretty exciting to watch, the refs let the players play and the fans get very excited...similar to a college game, The Canadians even all stood up and sang their National Anthem at the beginning of the game, when was the last time you saw that in a bar in the states?
I know that the above experiences are not nearly as exciting to read about as our death defying experiences on the high seas...but ya gotta take a break from the life of a real cruiser every once in awhile. Tomorrow we will be attending a Bon Voyage party and dinner for our neighbors and friends, Bill and Trish on S/V Kwinhagak, who have taught us many things about living the life of a resort cruiser.
