Capt Rich
We knew when we returned to La Paz that we were coming here for two reasons. First of course was for a final La Paz food tour with a few more visits to Estadio Tacos and Gina Burgers. The second and real reason was for some boat projects we wanted to complete before we started the trip back to our Port San Luis, California mooring. Both the projects and food tours are well underway and as we check them off the list we get closer to the end. Lori and I both agreed today that because of what we have lined up for our return to States, at least yet anyway, we don't have a feeling of dread or panic as our time in Mexico winds down. However, it could be that I've been breathing so many fumes from varnish and thinner that nothing would make me depressed at this point!

As I'm working on applying some maintenance costs to the exterior teak, Lori and Diego have begun the mess making job of stripping the teak in the upper salon. This interior teak projects basically means that the interior of the boat is in a state of controlled chaos, which could explain why I would rather be out in the sun and heat working on the exterior teak than dealing with the mess down below. We won't have time to get the entire boat interior stripped and varnished before we start north, but we will just do as much as possible to take advantage of the lower labor costs of Mexico. We could stay for another summer to complete it, but we already took our return to the States mulligan last year, so this time we don't think we should cancel and just stay in Mexico!
