La Paz Vortex

25 August 2010 | La Paz
The La Paz vortex is working. This vortex has a way of sucking sailors into it and not allowing them to leave. La Paz is such a nice place, easy to be in and about 10 degrees cooler than further north. We have been back from Cabo for a week now and are still at the dock at Palmira. The current reason is waiting for propane tomorrow. We missed last Thursday and tried to take the bottles to Marina La Paz on Monday via dingy only to be beat back by lumpy conditions out of the breakwater. Oh sure we could take a cab down and fill them that way but then we'd have everything done and have to leave. So, departure is looking like Friday but depending upon what Hurricane Frank decides to do we may end up here longer. One model in the forecast has the hurricane decreasing to a tropical storm and passing directly over this area.

So we sit, continue to enjoy life here in La Paz with its conveniences and social life. We actually did a nice walk early on Monday into town to get a charge cord for our iPod nano and then walked back from Marina La Paz that evening after having dinner with our friend Patsy and her friend. Yesterday we walked up to the water park where we sat under a palapa all day, reading and swimming. We didn't put on sun screen early enough so today we're hiding from the sun.

Deb, you asked about the varnish, well it is flaking and will need to be all sanded down this fall. The weeks on the hard in Puerto Escondido did it in although Scott did put a coat on before we left; just too much direct heat I think. We've already put the word out that we'll need a couple of the workers that hang out around the docks to do some sanding in November. The gel coat on the boat is also getting pretty chalky. The sun is fierce on things for sure, including my nose!
