September Already

12 September 2010 | still in La Paz
In the next week I will get out the camera and take a few shots to post. Live in La Paz is still great. "Are we ever going to leave?" seems to be the question. Gary is back from the north country, so I am not batching anymore, but I think he will be the next one on the net wondering what to do with a "bitchy" wife? There are days!!

We have a new threat out at the Magote. A 100 foot schooner, a boat with lovely lines that was built in Turkey, and sunk at Marina Costa Baja awhile back, has been anchored out by the folks at Abaroa's boat yard (the scuttlebut seems to be that they didn't pay their bill) (just remember, I am not responsible for the accuracy of rumors), anyway, it would appear that they are on a 50 lbs danforth, 30 feet of chain, and lots of rope, and are a danger to all. We had to move they were just too threatening. I personally don't think the anchor is even in the sand, so they wander around just dragging their chain and anchor like the old ghosts in the castles of Europe.
So far the wind has been quiet, and even so, the schooner would have wiped us out the other day if we had still be in our same spot. Haven't ventured inside it but someone said it is just a huge empty shell. But it has great lines, and really looks pretty. Would make a good B&B if someone wanted to put the cash into the interior.

Gary came back with lots of energy, I think the north spawns that, so he is systematically getting all the decks clean, and doing all the other blue jobs that he knows I didn't do.

I am still marketing like mad, and I think that is going to slow down because Gary is talking about taking a run up into the sea for a month or so.

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. [...]
