July 4th and Behind Schedule

04 July 2012 | But No One Cares!
Capt Rich
Last winter as we were contemplating plans for our return to California, rumors were made and spread of the San Diego or even more ambitiously the Pismo Beach firework show welcoming us back. Fast forward 6 months and it's pretty clear that yet another "plan" has come and gone. Rather than celebrating the 4th of July 2012 along with our return to California with Fireworks, BBQ, and apple pie here we are in La Paz finishing up our teak stripping and revarnishing project. BBQs and apple pie will be traded to tacos and empanadas but that just doesn't sound too bad to me quite honestly.

Despite the rumors and side bets that I'm sure are taking place after our last summer U-turn that kept us in Mexico for another year we are getting closer to leaving. Yesterday we received an email from Jose in Mexicali that our anchor chain was regalvanized and it would soon start the truck trip back to La Paz. Once we have our anchor chain back, we run out of excuses and it's time to head north along with our friends on SV Hurrah who are planning to do the Baja bash with us to San Diego. Sure we are technically "behind schedule" on leaving La Paz, but the truth is departing by July 4th was always what we in the cruising world call a "schedule written in sand", so no one here is that worried that we will be 7-10 days behind schedule. Heck, once you have added an extra year onto your cruise at the last minute, what's another two weeks? To me it's just more time for tacos, Gina Burgers, and boat projects that won't end when we get back to Port San Luis. In fact there are only two ways to get out of boat projects: Selling or Sinking the boat. After two weeks of living in a torn up teak dust boat, both are starting to sound like reasonable options!

Admiral's note:
We were planning on moving onto the boat on July 4th of 2008 and we were behind schedule then too. We ended up moving aboard around the middle of the month so this just completes the circle at the appropriate time--or something like that. In other words, some things change and some things stay the same.
