Chit chat from La Paz

24 August 2010 | La Paz, Mexico
Hi there, hope all is fine in your world. Have been doing more marketing than blogging lately, so some of this news will be old hat to anyone that is keeping up with the world.
Life in La Paz goes on. I think everyone is tired of the heat, in fact one cruiser who shall remain nameless, to protect his wife, came on 22 last evening and asked what he should do with a wife who was nagging him all the time, and driving him crazy! Well, there was lots of silly comments, but I really think that life on his boat is not getting better!! "A woman Scorned" and all that.
There seems to be lots of boats these days going "walkabout" every 20 knots of wind seems to be dangerous these days. 2 small boats went up on the Malacon a couple of days ago, one of them a cute little folk boat, that someone should salvage and love, because it will be toast if we get any serious wind. And of course a boat that everyone calls "Footprints" seems to be leaning on the sandbar every time we get a low tide. Not sure why it has been abandoned but I guess it doesn't hurt it to lean on the sand every couple of days, but again, we have had no wind to speak of.
Our new meeting room is coming along great. There is talk about a 50 inch flat screen on the wall for movie night, I wonder who will pick the movies, let me see, "chick flicks" or "murder & mayhem" hummmmmmm..... Anyway, the progress is great, and apparently there are mucho plug-ins all over the place, so it sounds like lots of places to plug in computers. Probably be ready for the "ha ha" group, because it is moving along quickly. Wheel chair access it won't have tho, because it is upstairs, but a great view of the bay will be had. I mentioned a bar, but someone said that alcohol won't be allowed. Find that hard to believe that prohibition will be in force in Mexico. We shall see I guess.
And last but not least, I have been following the New Dream Plan, that Shaklee has come up with for Canada and the USA, and there are some great new perks. So if you have any interest in making a couple of hundred dollars a week, or just want to win a "Get Clean Kit" go to
Until next time, enjoy.

Gary and I have just retired. We decided that since we always were going to go cruising in our retirement years, that this was the time to do it. So far we have made it as far as La Paz Mexico and have been stuck. It is marvelous. [...]
