Breakdown Looming Ahead
01 June 2012 | La Paz
We are on the last 24 hours of having my sister aboard and then as soon as she heads to the airport we’ll begin pickling the watermaker and taking sails and canvas off of the decks to be stored below for the summer hurricane season. We are trying to finish off all open and frozen foods so that a minimal amount will need to be given away to either fellow cruisers or dock workers. I want to try to use up the canned goods that have been on board for the last year as well.
The weather has heated up; yesterday a high of 98 kept us under the shade and laid low for the afternoon. A nice cooling wind came up overnight dropping the temperatures to 64 for wonderful sleeping. It looks like the next 4 days when we’ll be doing the bulk of the work will be 90 or lower, wonderful!
I have some nice photos of our time up north in the islands but didn’t bring down my camera cord to transfer photos so it will have to wait until we are back in Everett. We did have a great time, making it as far north as Isla Carmen in the Loreto area. We spent time in Ballandra, Salinas, Agua Verde, Punta San Telmo, St.Marte, Puerto Escondido, Juncilito, Candeleros and Isla San Francisco. Most of these were new for Mona and as expected they are all favorites.
If we work hard and finish before Thursday we’ll go spend a day or so at the timeshare in San Jose del Cabo before boarding the plane. Lynsie is picking us up at the airport in her new car. Fruits of being a member of the working class and maker of car payments!
