Day Two

18 July 2012 | Bananza to Muertos
Capt Rich
7AM and anchors up at the Bananza beach anchorage and off we go heading through the Cervalo channel to Bahia los Muertos. It's just about a 50 mile trip but it will take us through some prime fishing grounds, so we hope to pull lunch and dinner aboard! We are traveling with our friends on SV Sea Raven and Hurrah making up our little 3 boat flotilla.

We are hoping to meet up with our good friends on SV Hotspur at Muertos later today for a final good bye. They are heading to La Paz for the summer and it would be nice to see them one more time.

Motoring on calm drama at the everyone is happy

Sat, Sun...Now Monday

13 July 2012 | The story of Manana
Capt Rich
First the anchor chain was scheduled to arrive back in La Paz last Wednesday, but it was found to be in Ensenada. Then it was going to be here today, nada. The new story is that it will arrive late in the day on Saturday and since the trucking company is closed on Sunday, we will be able to pick up my newly galvanized anchor chain Monday morning. That's gets us out of La Paz perhaps Monday afternoon but more likely Tuesday morning. We are not really in a "hurry" but the truth is that it's hot, we are tired and it's time to seek out the cool temperatures to be found on the Pacific Baja coast.

There is some good to come out of the chain delay. Of course there is the extra food we are getting to eat in La Paz, but we are also getting to spend some extra time with friends and our good friends on Hotspur are rumored to be heading this way from Puerto Vallarta, so getting to see them one more time will be nice.

Provisioning Day

11 July 2012
Admiral Lori
Provisioning, today is the day to go get all of the groceries that we will have for about the next month for 5 and a half people (Jason equals 2 and a half people). I know that we will be able to pick up a few things in Man O War Cove in Magdalena Bay and also Turtle Bay but those will be small stores and those supplies more limited and probably a little more expensive. I will be able to get eggs and other essentials like dish soap but I am not sure about some of the finer things of life like pancake syrup. In the past I had made our own syrup from brown sugar, water, butter, and some vanilla flavoring but it is just not the same. Some of the other things on my list are:
Canned meat—Chata Chilorio El Autentico canned pork. It is a little spicy. All you have to do it heat it up, put it on top of a piece of bread or whatever food you are making and call it good.
Cheese—Cheese is sold by the Kilo so we will have about 2 and a half kilos (around 5 libs) of Gouda or Manchego
Saladitas—Soda crackers. They are good for soups, stews, and nausea. I like to keep them on hand.
Salsa—Herdez salsa Casera. It is a chunky not too hot salsa that goes on pretty much anything. I like to use it on eggs as Rich complains if they are too dry then I put the salsa on them and he never knows.
Milk—We like Lala Light. Jason could drink a whole liter box in one sitting. If you get the boxes they need no refrigeration so they can be stuffed just about anywhere.
Mayonaisa con Limon—Mayonnaise with a little lime juice. In general we do not use a lot of mayonnaise but I have 12 cans of tuna for quick sandwiches so we have found the mayo with the lime just adds a little extra flavor.
Cat litter—Who would ever have a cat inside the house anyway? If you do not get the litter in big towns the people look at you funny and then point to the dirt. Cortez has never missed his box so I am fully prepared to get him his good clumping letter so he will have his usual digging material.
Media Crema—This is the stuff dreams are made or, at least for Rich and Jason. It is a heavy cream that does not need to be refrigerated. It goes on anything from hot dogs, Pablano cream sauce, soups…. I have not found a substitute that does not need to be refrigerated in the states.
Veges—Potatoes, carrots, onions, and cabbage. These things last a long time. I will also be buying some apples, bananas, mangos, and other yummy goodies.
Other things on the list are: hot dogs, toilet paper, bacon, tortilla chips, rice, Nutella, boxed juice, cookies (for 2 am snacks), oatmeal…
Lynda and Jim on Gael Force just brought us 2 Jars of peanut butter back from California hopefully that will get us up to Ensanada.
Bill on Wandering Puffin has a car here in La Paz and he has offered to give Barbara on sv Hurrah and I a ride to the grocery store today which makes life a lot easier. Thanks Bill
