Summer in La Paz

It's too hot to survive.
You will die from heat.
It's unbearable to summer in La Paz.

Well maybe it is too hot and unbearable if you are in a marina without the breeze, but just like last summer, the crew is sleeping with blankets at night and the daily afternoon breeze is making the anchorage quite comfortable. On last nights radio net a boat north of La Paz was reporting 90 deg temperatures at 715PM, while the La Paz anchorage was already cool and comfortable. In fact, without hot water for showers, we make a point to shower during the day because showering once the sun sets is just too cold!


Not to exaggerate, the days certainly are HOT, maybe even better described as Firecracker Hot. The solution is to NOT make trips into town during "gringo hour", which is 1PM to 3PM when the heat is at its worst. Walking the malacon at night is fabulous with the cool breeze making Amy and Lori typically bring their sweatshirt on our walk for ice cream. It is a dry heat and honestly out here at anchor it's just not that big of a deal. The hottest most uncomfortable I have been during our Cruise was without a doubt the two weeks we spent in Mazatlan in August. The repressive humidity of the mainland necessitates a marina slip and an air conditioning unit to survive, not live - but just survive.
