Moving north

We leave in the morning for Islands and anchorages north. The norther seems to have pasted and we are finishing up items that needed internet connection so we can spend a few days dis-connected. Between La Paz and Loreto there are no cell phone towers that sends the signal as far as the water as they follow Mexico 1 inland so we go quiet for a few days of travel.

For the next 3 weeks we are on the same time zone as home. The states have made their daylight savings time adjustment but Mexico doesn't move their clocks ahead until Sunday April 7th. Just when we'll get used to it things will change again. Humm, seems to be a theme with life!

All is well here, we’ve had friends on other boats here with us and have hiked around the bay. This is a great place to be as far as weather and connections. We likely won’t be back down this way until May but will consider it when we don’t want to be in the marina.

Last night on our way back to our boat from having sundowners aboard Interabang we had amazing phosphorescence in the water. A trail behind the dingy from the outboard was 12 feet long and the bow sent sparkles through the water. As we would approach fish they would send shooting streams off in every direction. It was truly magic and a memory we’ll keep for a while.

We’re doing well on our ability to keep charged with the solar panels. Their output decreases with heat so the mid to high 70’s is working well to keep the fridge from running to often and allowing max output from the panels. We’ve only had to run the generator once and mostly because we wanted to watch movie and fully charge computers and phones. I am disappointed in the battery life of my cell as it doesn’t seem to last a full 24 hours. My computer battery is nearly flat and only last about 40 minutes without being plugged in so we hope it won’t interrupt usage while being plugged in as well as we’ve heard stories from others who had problems.

All and all, we’re ready to move north and see other places. Life is good and we are blessed beyond belief for our experiences!
